Hunting or construction clothing worn by Texans during non-hunting/construction activities, particularly skiing. The clothing color is usually tree-and-leaves camouflage or hunter orange. It is worn by Texans and other rural or midwestern people. The term also applies when such clothing is used for any urban activity. Despite the name, the clothing has historically not been made from Gore-Tex, but was considered what Texans have in lieu of Gore-Tex. It is typically purchased at Cabela's or Wal-Mart. Popular brands include Carhartt and Cabela's.
1. A skier wearing a full-length one-piece Carhartt coverall and hunter orange knit hat is wearing Texas Gore-Tex.
2. A man wearing a camouflage hunting jacket to an expensive downtown restaurant is going out with his Texas Gore-Tex on.
3. "That part of the mountain is dominated by people wearing Texas Gore-Tex, let's stay away"
