Real Gore-tex spelled that way? Yep, first hand experiance, since it was marketed to the public.

The ECWS Gortex top and bottom are meant to be used as part of a system of layers, in conjunction with the poly pro's , BDU's, etc. As a stand-alone jacket, I don't think they work anywhere near as well for keeping warm as the old field jacket did.

I use my issued gortex for everything from rain to sub zero weather. I put a field jacket liner on under it, and it keeps me nice and warm. Unlike my old field jacket, it also keeps me dry and the wind is never an issue.
