The First Testimonial About the Wind Shirt and a Picture of Cookie

Posted by

Hi Jerry,

Your Ducksback wind shirts work extremely well. I have three of them in different colors. Today I ran five miles in 25° weather with just fishnets underneath and I was comfortable. Never could have done this with goretex and down. I wear the wind shirts indoors as well as I keep my house on the cool side. Thanks for your great products.

Wiggy's Dog Cookie

As you can see Cookie is my service dog. I have her because I have a problem with elephants. Some tell me there are no elephants in Grand Junction so I tell them she is working.

As for Jared's experience, I am not surprised. The wind shirt is a garment I would have worn skiing and sailing if it existed back then.

Class Action Lawsuits

Class action lawsuits are designed to hold companies accountable for misleading and deceiving their customers. When a case settles, the attorneys who handled the case will collect a percentage of the settlement or receive a fee award separate from the settlement. The lawyers get paid, and so should you.

It is my contention based upon facts that there is no such entity as a material or combination of a woven fabric such as nylon taffeta laminated to Teflon film that has been coated with a nonporous polyurethane urea membrane that is waterproof and breathable. Read the following quote taken from my last article: 

"First, the term 'breathable' refers to microporous, membrane-based fabric because it is air-permeable, and air can be blown or forced through it. The Gore-Tex fabric is not air-permeable because its microporous polytetrafluoroethylene membrane has been coated with a thin layer of 'nonporous' polyurethane urea membrane, making it non-air-permeable.”

When I first became aware of them applying the urethane film a wondered why. the answer was simple, they needed to make the film stable and smooth to laminate. The Teflon [short for the chemical name] is very flimsy and difficult to handle when it is 60 or 70 inches wide, stiffening the film solved the problem, but as you can see it ended the vapor permeability that it has as a stand-alone product. 

A class action lawsuit may very well also include the companies that have for so many years promoted the goretex film in their products. Like all of the boot manufacturers whose customers have been experiencing wet feet that are cold as a direct reason for cold feet. Imagine the number of goretex lined boots that have been sold during the past 40 years probably the greater majority by Wolverine Worldwide. The number is probably a staggering one in the millions. How about rain garments from all of the different brands like North Face, Arc’teryx, Bass Pro etc. I will not take the time to note ALL of the companies that have benefited from this fraudulently advertised product. The one that is the greatest of fraudulent producers is Simms seller of trout fishing waders. They claim that while you are wading and if your legs are sweating the sweat moves out of the waders. I guess nobody working at Simms has ever worn these wader’s trout fishing. Imagine that the sweat if there is any can push out against the water surrounding you legs. I believe I read sometime ago that gore owned part of Simms. 

I looked on the gore web site to find out if they still sell Revivex water repellent treatment, they don’t. They  recommend every other product of this type on the market. And they suggest you speak with some one at the company to give you clear advise. What a joke.

I do not have any problem with the gore company with respect to all of the other products they make such as is used in the medical field etc. except this one product goretex.
