Choose eVent over GORE-TEX
Whereas GORE-TEX® uses a polyurethane layer in their fabrics to absorb sweat in a two layer process, eVent® application is made to the inner layers of the garment, taking away the need for a PU layer. eVent refers to this as Direct Venting Technology. This means that eVent® is technically more breathable, and therefore quicker to dry than GORE-TEX®.
eVent® may need more care than a GORE-TEX® alternative as the PU layer protects the PTFE layer from oil and grease. Your eVent® jacket and pants will need to be washed and reproofed more often than a GORE-TEX® alternative. Because of the highly breathable benefits of eVent® this is even more important than with other membranes, as it will keep your eVent® garment performing at its best!
