Because for centuries men and women have been hanging out in these parts with kilts as the only bit of kit to cover their white sun-starved bodies, so what the hell difference is Gore-Tex going to make? Sweet FA if you ask us. That said, you're probably better off wearing a jacket, so we put some high end Gore-Tex Pro hard shells to the test.
