The longstanding collaboration between Woolrich and GORE-TEX came to be over 40 years ago. In 1979 Woolrich was one of the first pioneers to embrace this technology. In the 1970's, the market for outdoor clothing expanded into a new direction to meet outdoor interests: backpacking, camping, mountaineering and bicycling, thus enforcing the partnership and allowing it to evolve.
