Care Instructions

This is one of the most technically advanced pieces of gear you've ever owned. Why not take care of it?


Washing Recommendations:

  • Use a front loading washing machine when possible
  • Zip all zippers
  • Machine wash cold
  • Use a specific down wash like Nikwax Down Wash™ to extend the hyperdry coating and to prevent down clumping
  • Periodically use a specific DWR reapplication such as SoftShell Proof™ (Approximately every 3 to 5 washes)
  • Rinse very thoroughly after washing
  • Do not use fabric softeners
  • Do not iron
  • Do not bleach
  • Do not dry clean

Drying Recommendations:

  • Tumble dry on low with 2 or 3 tennis balls to maintain the down's loft
  • Do not air dry (the down may dry in clumps)
  • Check on your jacket periodically during the drying process to massage out any large down clumps by hand
  • Do not store wet
  • TIP: Even if the jacket seems fully dry, small amounts of internal moisture can lead to down clumping. It may take several drying cycles to fully dry your down jacket. When in doubt, put it in for another drying cycle.
