Customer service & FAQ
When should I wash/waterproof my garment?
It is important to keep the garment clean to ensure functionality is preserved and to avoid it being clogged with dirt. You don’t need to worry about damaging the membrane by cleaning it. To extend the lifetime of the garment, it is also important to re-waterproof it, in whole or in part, when the outer fabric begins to absorb moisture in light rain. If the outer fabric gets wet, this prevents the garment from breathing and the wet, cold fabric clings to your body - which may be perceived as the garment leaking. Note that only clean garments should be re-waterproofed.
Where do I go to repair an item not covered by warranty?
Garments with a membrane should always be repaired by an authorized GORE-TEX repair facility, to ensure correct repair with taped seams, thereby preserving the waterproof or windproof integrity of the garment. Other clothing and sleeping bags can be repaired by your local seamstress. If your shoes or boots have a GORE-TEX sock and need to be repaired, this should be done by an authorized GORE-TEX shoe-repairer/facility. If your shoes don't contain GORE-TEX, your local shoe-repairer can help you with repairs. Backpacks can be repaired by your local shoe-repairer.
Does Haglöfs use phthalates (softeners) in their products?
No. Phthalates are often found in PVC to make the material softer. These phthalates are not allowed for use in our production processes.
Does Haglöfs have anti-bacterial agents in their products?
No, we decided in 2012 not to add any antibacterial treatments in our apparel. There might still be old products in shops with this treatment. To prolong times between washes, we have chosen to treat selected styles with LAVA™, which is a non-toxic, bluesign® approved anti-odor treatment which is not anti-bacterial. It does not kill the germs, it just prevents the ‘old sweat’ smell.
Does Haglöfs have any flame retardants in their products?
No, we have never used them.
Does Haglöfs have fluorinated substances / PFCs in their products?
We have gradually since 2007 changed the content of the majority of our DWR treatments to be completely fluorocarbon free in most of our clothing, including all our own waterproof/windproof/breathable PROOF™-shell layers, all FlexAble softshells & all Climatic styles as well as all insulation pieces. Some products, where high performance may be the difference between success and fatal error, however still use a C6-DWR technology (with lower environmental impact) to meet the high performance demand of our customers. The levels of C6 PFCs found in our shell garments are far below legal limits. We are also involved in several research projects to find a highly functional alternative to PFC, where we are making great progress (read more at http://www.supfes.eu/) We have the firm ambition that in 2020 we have phased out all use of fluorocarbon based DWR and we are taking big steps each season to reach that goal.
Does Haglöfs use Chromium in their footwear?
Yes, but we do not use Chromium6 in the tanning process of leather in shoes, but Chromium3 which is a less harmful process to the environment. Unfortunately there is currently no viable alternative, if you want functional outdoor leather shoes/boots. Vegetable-tanned leather does not have sufficient durability. We choose to use more environmentally friendly leather by using leather from Leather Working Group (Gold/Silver rated) tanneries and suppliers with traceability possibilities in the supply chain.
Does Haglöfs have any ‘eco friendly’ products?
Yes, lots! We are striving to make all our products have as low environmental impact as possible. Choosing long-lasting, slow-fashion functional wear is the first and very best choice to make! Besides this, we have a lot of clothes made from recycled materials and any cotton use in our clothes is ecological cotton! We also have lots of bluesign® products. This means that at least 90% of the material in the product is bluesign®certified, meaning that the material and components are manufactured according to the strictest chemical requirements as well as the best resource efficiency (best available technology - BAT) of the textile industry today. Keep an eye out for our ‘Take Care’ products if you wish to find the products where we’ve pushed our sustainability efforts a bit extra.
What about fur, wool and down?
No animal material used in Haglöfs products shall originate from animals that have been subjected to cruel or harsh treatment. All animal materials shall be a by-product from animals raised for human consumption. We do not accept any use of fur. We do not allow mulesing practise on merino sheep. We only use Responsible Down Standard (RDS) Down which is traceable in the supply chain to the breeding farm and where the down/feather comes from animals that have not been live-plucked/live-harvested or force-fed. We do not allow any material from cage-bred or endangered species.
Is it possible for Haglöfs products to contain more than 0.1% of any of the substances on the REACH Candidate list?
That’s because we have control over our Restricted Substances List that all our material producers must follow. We also use a majority of bluesign® approved materials in our products, which is a guarantee that these substances (or other hazardous substances!) are not present in our materials.
