Our Athletes

We have a long tradition of sponsoring professional athletes and selected projects.

One of our first endeavors was to support Reinhold Messner in the late seventies with a product engineered with GORE-TEX product technology on an expedition in the Himalayas. Since then, we’ve been working with numerous athletes around the world and have supported hundreds of projects. We especially value their input and support during field tests of prototype garments and new materials in order to develop garments that are fit for use.


Athletes and brand ambassadors

  • Sigrid (@thisissigrid)

    The breakout singer-songwriter and BBC Sound of Music 2018 winner Sigrid blends artistic passion, fueled by lifelong influences from the natural world and mirrors the new direction of the GORE-TEX brand.

  • Stefan Glowacz

    Even though he has spent 30 years competing in climbing events and taking part in expeditions "by fair means", Stefan Glowacz is still considered one of the best climbers in the world. 

  • Greg Hill

    Greg Hill, "one of the fittest ski mountaineer of all time". He tackled a total elevation gain of more than 600,000 meters within 266 days. Now his focus is on reducing his personal carbon footpring emissions while following his passion of ski mountaineering.

  • Tamara Lunger

    Tamara Lunger’s approach is always the same: light & fast - and she always gives 120% to whatever she does. 

  • Daniel Jung

    Daniel is a runner of the „old school“: He does not have a trainer or even a training schedule and he loves what he does.

  • Alex Megos

    In 2013, Alex stepped into the spotlight of the international climbing world and since then he pushes the boundaries.


Sponsorship is an integral part of our business. We value the dedication and commitment of professional athletes and outdoor enthusiasts who set out every day on exceptional projects around the world. We’re proud to be a partner in their endeavors through garments, footwear and accessories engineered with GORE-TEX or WINDSTOPPER® product technology produced by our partners, which protect them and keep them comfortable in situations when they really need it.

Our sponsorship philosophy is based around specific professional athletes and specific international events. We support projects of athletes who are experts in mountaineering, mountain running, free skiing or ski touring. Through our partnerships we help them to accomplish their projects and our athletes value us as a reliable and trusted partner.
