I got my first look at Gore’s new C-Knit backer technology around this time last year in Yosemite. As autumn slowly rolls in across the country, the first C-Knit pieces are beginning to hit the market.
For a long time, Gore has focused on improving the thermal comfort of your outerwear. Basically, how can you make a jacket or pants more breathable without hindering performance in both durability and waterproofness. This time around, Gore turned their focus to the more sensorial aspects of a garment—how does it feel and even sound. The result is Gore C-Knit Backer Technology.
