the Definition of Rainwear
Items with GORE-TEX occupy majority of Goldwin’s products lineup. Those have an excellent waterproof characteristic, but we don’t produce them just to offer umbrella replacements. Rainwear we develop are carefully designed apparel that could be worn comfortably in various occasions with ingenious silhouette and details.STORY
Creating ‘just right’ design
that fits various occasions
The primary function of rainwear is a protection from the rain. But if water-resistant or water-repellent clothes is all that is required for rainwear, it can only function in ordinary living. However, Goldwin assumes our lives in natural environment engaging in outdoor activities. The clothes must tolerate rain, wind and temperature changes to keep you protected and comfortable. We utilize our expertise gained from manufacturing ski wear into our products to provide superior protection and more.
GORE-TEX MOUNTAIN PULLOVER is one of our offerings for outdoor activities from early summer to autumn. We chose a lightweight and compact GORE-TEX PACLITE® for this product because of its excellent water-resistant feature and permeability. The surface fabric has a modest shine and soft texture. Making the most of this material, we designed this jacket to be ‘just right’ in many different situations of life. What we mean by ‘just right’ design is comfort derived from its high functionality.
Because the weather can drastically change on the mountain, packable and easy-to-wear design is demanded for rainwear. Even a highly functional raincoat can become inconvenient if it’s too heavy and bulky to carry just like an unused umbrella that you have to bring with you after the rain. To avoid such frustration, Goldwin designed GORE-TEX MOUNTAIN PULLOVER to be as light as possible. The half-zip closure and looser fit offer great mobility and makes the item easier to wear and take off, while GORE-TEX PACLITE® adds extra lightness and packability. Each feature of this ingenious jacket links each other to offer optimal functionality.
Highly professional gear for high altitude mountaineering is not always comfortable to use in town. While accepting the idea of ‘the greater serves for the lesser,’ Goldwin never understate the lesser. Because Goldwin aim to develop rainwear that are comfortable regardless of the weather and place.
