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.
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.
A sponge absorbs water - that is, the entire
sponge soaks in and retains the water. Conversely, adsorption,
which is what takes place with activated charcoal in
Scent-Lok®, is the capturing of matter by the surface of a
solid. The surface of activated charcoal is an extensive labyrinth
of different size pores, nooks and crannies that trap and hold
gases, vapors and dissolved matter (all forms of human scent).
Activation (or technically, reactivation) is the process of heating
this surface to high temperatures. This releases the trapped scent
molecules and reopens the pores, nooks and crannies for future
