    That's the nice thing about gore-tex. Just toss it into the washing machine to get it clean and restore its breathability after it gets clogged with dirt/guts. I've resembled the smell you're referring to after days of fishing and hours upon hours of cleaning fish. After running it through the wash it comes out clean and odor-free.

    BTW, when washing gore-tex clothing I wash it a second time without any soap and using the double-rinse feature of the washing machine. Soap residue clogs the fabric pores and I've noticed it doesn't breathe as well.

      Maybe I just wait too long after getting it nasty to clean it.

        With my Gore-Tex jackets, I wash them on cold and then spray them with Rivivex thoroughly and throw them in the dryer to refresh the repellency. Dirt plays heck with the breathable membrane rain-wear and cleaning it can really make a huge difference. Same with waders- seems like most people don't wash them.
