I love my Gore-Tex boots

I wanted to make a post in defense of Gore-Tex footwear which is almost dogmatically maligned here. I think they are perfect for my use case.

Before moving to the UK I did most of my hiking in Texas (think Big Bend--dry, hot deserts) so my footwear choice was easy: The lighter the better. Merrell Trail Gloves became my standard.

But here I've had a miserable time thus far with various shoes (eg Trail Gloves, old fashioned leather boots etc) due to thick mud and river crossings. Despite wearing wool socks, my feet would never feel dry afterwards. I think this is compounded by the cold, because when I'm cold my feet produce essentially no body heat to dry out my socks/shoes. And in the cold, with constant mud and multiple river crossings, quick-dry shoes don't have a chance to dry anyhow.

In addition, my feet basically never sweat--even in the desert. And they especially don't sweat in the shoulder seasons here.

So I realized this subreddit's standard advice to avoid waterproof shoes in favor of quick-dry shoes to prevent wetting out from the inside does not apply to me in two ways:

  1. No shoes dry quickly for me in the cold, because my feet don't generate the heat to make that feasible

  2. I won't "wet-out" waterproof shoes because my feet don't sweat, especially in the cold.

With this in mind I figured I was the perfect use case for Gore-Tex. I bought a pair of Arcteryx Aerios mids (390g/shoe, men's 10.5). I just finished my first hike with them, 50 miles around the Peak District over 3 days/2 nights.

I loved them. It was so bizarre splashing in the mud or into a stream. My feet would feel the cold, and my brain would initially interpret this as feeling soaked, but my feet stayed bone dry. When I took my socks off at the end of each day I couldn't stop touching my feet! I couldn't believe how dry they were. I've heard people complain that when GTX shoes get muddy they lose their breathability but I did not find this to be the case.

I never felt swampy, though I could tell the shoes were heavier from being somewhat water-laden at the end of the day. That said I think this would have been the case with any shoe, because no shoe would have dried out over the course of the day in that situation as I've explained above.

So in sum, for a very specific user, I think Gore-Tex can be a fantastic option, and I'm glad I found this particular model whic

lost a pretty penny after being scammed off a piece of shit who used to dwell the rep subs. Right before the holiday season too, so fuck you Luke. Hope your shoes don't resell, kiddo 😠

Joke's aside, I'm fortunate that was not money I needed for rent or anything essential to life, was just a hit to my budgeted "recreational money" so it sucks, but I'll survive. Scammers can really ruin people's lives tho, so just be cautious everyone. Not sure really what else to advise, cos I'm a careful guy, and just got unlucky as fuck here...

If you're a Costco member, there's a pretty fantastic deal on a Gore Tex Pro shell. Mine came via post today -- just took it out in the rain and it did its job during the time I was outside, but obviously I haven't had a chance to test it in extended conditions. These jackets are normally in the $500+ range, so thought I'd share.

Down wash or Gore-Tex wash for Therme Parka?

Hi,

I recently got an Arc’teryx Therme Parka which is down insulated on the inside. I got a down wash set from granger’s with dryer balls for the down part but since it’s also GORE-Tex is it better to use the Granger’s GORE-Tex wash or would that ruin the down part inside?

[WTS] Burton AK Cyclic Gore-Tex Ski/Snowboard jacket - Men's Large - NWT

Hard to let this one go but as I’ve said in my other sale posts, the holidays are coming and it’d be nice to have some extra cash in my pocket.

This is arguably one of Burton’s nicest jackets, from their nicest line (AK). Living liner, zip in/out powder skirt, an insulated chest pocket to keep your phone or other device with a battery in it warmer so it doesn’t drain as fast in the cold, pit zips, pass pocket on the arm, water-tite zips throughout, retro-reflective logos, cord cinch’s throughout on the hem and hood, sweet color combo, and better yet, I never even got to wear it. The jacket is new without tags, however the Thermapocket tag on the inside is still there.

Bought this last December with the intention to use it snowboarding in February/March and then covid came and I never got back out that season. Life has its ways and right now I don’t see myself riding too often in the near future so might as well let someone else enjoy the jacket than it sitting in the closet for another season.

Jacket retails for $400

My price is $250 $225 shipped to the lower 48

Where to place rank GII Gore-Tex Jacket

Hello!

I am attending the Sabalauski Air Assault School in January and have a gen2 goretex jacket (ucp). In the packing list it requires the goretex jacket to be affixed with a rank. However, theres no velcro on the shoulder, chest, or zipper line to place a rank.

I was wondering where I would sew on a rank.
