There is quite a mix up regarding waterproof and water-repellent textiles. Most of the times, these terms are used synonymously. But there is a big technical difference between them, especially when the expectation is to stay dry in adverse weather conditions. We’ll explain in depth the difference between waterproof and water-repellent.
We are often asked, why we use only GORE-TEX® materials for our rain gear.

To be honest, in a way that is exactly what camouflage is all about. It is not about colours, shapes or ninja stuff. It is about knowledge, patience and manipulations of anything anywhere.
