Gore – Tex Active Shell Laminate in the Test

For quite some time, the Gore-Tex Active Shell on everyone’s lips is laminate in the outdoor scene. The waterproof membrane to keep out wind and weather and being extremely breathable, ideal for active sports such as trail running, mountain biking and alpine Speedabenteur. To test this promising properties, Gore has provided me the Montura Air Jacket available. Also I own Firefox Active Shell Jacket mountain equipment which in contrast to the very minimalist Montura significantly more features has.

Gore - Tex Active Shell Laminate in the Test

 

ABOUT THE ACTIVE SHELL LAMINATE

With an even more compact 3-layer construction, the water – and windproof full year clothing with Gore-Tex Active Shell offers laminate extreme breathability and great wearing Next-to-skin comfort. The laminates combine a lighter, thinner Gore-Tex membrane with due high-performance textiles, to the active fans the ultimate 3-layer solution to offer. On the side of the Chuck, membrane is integrated by a completely new, unique Laminationstechnologie of the textile Abseite now for the first time directly in the Gore-Tex.

Another feature of Active Shell is light weight, which is lighter by the membrane results in thinner Gore-Tex products. Is created so that the highly functional, permanently waterproof Gore-Tex Active Shell Laminaten also the desired, extremely light, maximum breathable clothing (jackets, shorts, short-sleeved jackets) without unnecessary features, Gore works very closely with the designers of the different brands. Gore E.g. dictates how much percent of the total area of a garment (seams) may be stuck, or what weight the jackets must have maximum according to Ehistorylib.

ACTIVE SHELL IN THE PRACTICE TEST

The Firefox’s Jacket by mountain equipment already longer in use. The air Jacket by Montura, however, only recently, for it was claimed but even more intense. For my recently launched project trail running these jackets, or the Active Shell are predestined namely laminate! When I come in contrast to the normal hiking, very quickly in the sweating and not too short. Wind and weather not immediately to cool the sweat must be removed quickly from the skin, which means all layers of clothing should be breathable. Is no problem here at Funktionsshirts, is already entirely different jackets with Hardshell. This should prevent rain and wind, derive from steam sweat in the form however as quickly as possible to the outside. And precisely this function offers the Gore-Tex Active Shell laminate.

In practice the Active Shell has abided by material always absolutely dry when running. The comfort on the skin is very pleasant, no comparison to a cheap rain protection where one has the impression to run in a trash bag with sauna effect. Here you immediately notice how breathable jackets are really.

Also the weight of both jackets is very pleasant. The Firefox weighs only 295 g (both size L, even balance) just 325 g, the air jacket. However, Montura waived several useful features such as Velcro closures at the cuffs, DrawString waist and hood, and underarm ventilation. And the times 30 g compared to the mountain equipment jacket just for the Save. This is probably due to the strict specifications of Gore. For segments such as running, bike or training there polyester goods with knitted surface (jacket weight < 300 grams), for the area, Alpine ascent gewebte Nylonshells (jacket weight < 400 grams).

A minor disadvantage have Active Shell jackets, however, they are not backpack suitable for. Due to the extremely thin Gore-Tex membrane, the jackets are not particularly resistant to abrasion, one should carry only very lightweight luggage (E.g. light day packs or Trailrucksäcke) so. So far I could but still no wear on the Firefox find jacket, which often had to wear day packs. For heavier baggage, Gore Gore-Tex Pro Shell provides material which has been designed for maximum robustness.

CONCLUSION

Who practiced sweaty sports in all weather conditions (such as E.g. trail running) and seeks a perfect wind and rain protection, is in really good hands products with Gore-Tex Active Shell. However, I personally prefer a jacket with more features than a minimalist model like the Montura air jacket. Since I take the 30 g extra weight of the Firefox jacket like in purchase.

There are active Shell clothing from approximately 200 euro. Currently you can get the Mountain Equipment Firefox tested me for very cheap 210 euros, Montura Air there even for only around 160 euros at the mountain friends.
