AUSA 23 – GORE-TEX Heritage Wall

GORE-TEX manufacturers W.L. Gore & Assoc celebrated 45 years of working with the US Army with their heritage wall. They dug back into their archives to showcase Extreme Cold Weather Clothing System, Gen II ECWCS, and Gen III ECWCS as well as some footwear including the Matterhorn boot which was popular as both an issue and private purchase item.

This timeline includes some wave top events in Gore’s relationship with the US Army.

    Wasn’t the ECWCS 2G USMC specific item?

      Essentially, APECS, it was used by Marines, AF, and some Army units.

      Was just about to comment on gen 2, it’s still the best for actually wearing. No doubt 3 packs better though.
