GORE-TEX®

GORE-TEX® fabric forever changed the standard for high-performance outerwear when it was introduced in 1978. Today, GORE-TEX fabric is known worldwide for extreme wet-weather protection that keeps you dry and comfortable from head to toe. Outerwear and footwear constructed using GORE-TEX fabric and technology is rigorously tested to ensure it is waterproof to keep you dry, windproof to keep you warm and breathable to keep you comfortable – all day long.



Cordura®

Cordura®

Cordura® nylon is the premier choice for outerwear because of its ability to withstand tears and abrasions that make confetti of lesser fabrics. Our Cordura® shells are just as durable as heavier fabrics, but much lighter and more comfortable with a supple, natural drape.



Thinsulate™

Thinsulate

There is a reason why original Thinsulate™ insulation is Cabela's No. 1-selling insulation: Warmth without weight or bulk. Thinsulate™ insulation is 1-1/2 to two times warmer than down and other polyester insulations when equal thicknesses are compared. Add in softness, extreme flexibility, and breathability for even greater comfort and you wind up with the premier insulating medium for outdoor sporting wear. Unlike other insulation materials that lose heat-retaining efficiency when wet, Thinsulate™ insulation absorbs less than 1% of its weight in water which means that heat is retained even under soggy conditions. Since its introduction, Thinsulate™ insulation has been effectively used in every sort of outdoor clothing.

The fibers of Thinsulate™ Insulation are exceedingly fine, making them ideal for trapping insulating air and reflecting back the body's radiant heat. Thinsulate fibers

The fibers in 6-denier polyester are much thicker and not nearly as effective at trapping air or reflecting back body heat. 6 denier fibers
