INSULATION

 

DOWN

Washing instructions: Follow the washing instructions on the care label inside the garment. Always close zippers and any velcro straps before washing. It is advantageous to use down detergent (available at your sports equipment retailing outlet) or a small amount of mild liquid detergent (around 1/3 of recommended dosage). Do not use fabric softener. It is beneficial to run an extra rinse cycle after washing. Tumble dry on low heat setting together with tennis balls until the garment is completely dry; this may take several hours.  Remove any lumps of down and fluff up the down by hand during and/or after tumble drying. If professionally dry-cleaned, make sure ‘water-wash’ is used (solvent-based dry-cleaning will harm the down) and that the garment is thoroughly dried after wash.

Miscellaneous: Our down garments are made from light, thin weaves with high tear strength, but they may still be sensitive to sharp twigs etc. They are lightly water repellent and can be re-waterproofed. Use a spray-on re-waterproofing agent that is suitable for down garments. Only re-waterproof clean garments. In order to keep the insulating qualities of your down garment in the best possible condition, it is better to air the product instead of washing it too often as the natural oils of the down (which contributes to lofting and natural water repelling capacity) gradually disappear with washing. When the garment is not used it is preferable to store it in its storage bag or by hanging – not in a compression bag. If the down is compressed for a long while its insulating qualities will be impaired. Make sure the garment is thoroughly dry before storage to avoid the risk of mould.

SYNTHETICS

Washing instructions: Follow the washing instructions on the care label inside the garment. Always close zippers and any velcro straps before washing. Tumble dry on low heat together with tennis balls until completely dry. If the filling is a so-called loose-fiber (e.g. Essens Mimic) there may be a certain risk of bunching of the fiber unless the synthetic filling is separated and lofted by hand during/after the drying process. The risk for bunching together of the loose-fiber filling is significantly reduced if the garment is regularly ‘shaken out’.

Miscellaneous: Our synthetic garments are made from light, thin weaves with high tear strength, but they may still be sensitive to sharp twigs etc. These garments are lightly water repellent and can be re-treated with spray-on waterproofing that is suitable for breathable garments. Only re-waterproof clean garments.
