the effect of salt on gortex

Hi:

I have had some people tell me that gortex is not that effective in a

salt water enviorment because the salt clogs the pores of the gortex

defeating the breathing attributes of the material. Of course this has always

been told to me by people who did not own a gortex product. Does anyone

have any first hand experience?

Thanks, jim
