Will a GoreTex shell tear on a fall?
I am relatively new to snowboarding and have a question about a Gore-tex jacket that I was planning to wear when snowboarding. It is a Merrill Gore-tex shell. My question is, will it rip if I fall on the snow?
I live in southern california and my layering plans are the following:
Base layer -- wearing cold weather under armour
Middle layer -- polyester fleece
Outer layer -- Gore-tex shell
I was considering using a different shell if the Gore-tex might rip on a fall...any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
