Gore-Tex® is your guarantee of highest quality and maximum protection even in the most extreme weather. Which is why on professional expeditions to the coldest and wettest regions on earth, Gore-Tex® fabrics are the products of choice. This is also the reason why we at Tierra use Gore-Tex®, because it is the most durable material for extreme conditions today. We constantly evaluate our choice of materials to see if we can maintain the same quality and at the same time reduce the environmental footprints. We also consider our clothes’ length of life, one of the most important environmental factors, that’s why we today choose Gore-Tex®. All Gore-Tex® fabrics we use are Bluesign® certified and Oeko-Tex® certified.

Use a Waterproof Case for Your Phone
The Gore-Tex® product control program guarantees the performance not only of the Gore-Tex® fabric but of all finished Gore-Tex® outerwear made by our manufacturing partners. The results are strict performance and manufacturing standards for all Gore-Tex® garments – and the GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise: if you are not completely satisfied with the waterproofness, windproofness or breathability of your Gore-Tex® outerwear, Gore-Tex® will repair it, replace it or refund your purchase price. However, storing your mobile phone or wallet in a waterproof case or zip-lock bag weather it’s in your inner- or outer pocket is to be recommended. This is due to that the zippers of the outer pockets are water resistant only, not water proof, for enhanced breathability and the inner pockets could let through moisture from your body into the content of the pocket.
The Gore-Tex® Types
There are different types of Gore-Tex®, all with a specific function depending on what the product is intended for. All our clothes are designed for a special use and environment and therefore the type of Gore-Tex® of a Tierra Jacket can vary. If you find an additional word to the Gore-Tex® logo on your garment you will see what type of Gore-Tex® it is. Below is information about the differences.
