CARE ADVICE

Drying Coats

To preserve the fibres in the microfibre and to ensure that they continue to work effectively to absorb moisture please observe the following:

Your drying coat can be washed in a washing machine at temperatures up to 40 degrees celcius.
Only use non-biological powders/liquids. Do not use fabric conditioners or softeners, or dual action tablets.

Air drying is preferable for microfibre, and you will find that your drying coat will dry relatively quickly if hung up. 

Tumble drying is not recommended.


Waterproof Coats

To prolong the life of your waterproof coat, wash it as little as possible as each time the coat is washed it shortens the life of the waterproof coating and seam tape.

It is preferable to lightly wipe off the dirt with a damp cloth, or fill a bucket with cold water and slosh the coat around to remove the dirt and then allow to air dry. Do not wring or squeeze your coat.


It is not recommended that waterproof clothing is washed with detergent, fabric conditioners or softeners as the chemicals can breakdown the composition of the fibres with each wash and strip the coat of its waterproofing coating. Instead a tech wash solution can be used (such as Nikwax Tech Wash), pure soap flakes, or wash on a water cycle only, ensuring that the machine is clean of all detergents first by running a rinse cycle first.


If you notice that the fabric of your coat is absorbing rather than repelling water, you may wish to reproof your coat.

 

Cooling Vests

The vest can be stored wet for short periods of time in the plastic bag provided, for example if you are going out for the day. However, do not store your vest in the plastic bag for a long period of time as mildew may occur.

When not in use, fold the vest up while wet, and it will become dry and hard and then can be safely stored away.

DO NOT try and unfold it is hard and dry as it may tear. Instead when you are ready to use it again, rewet it by soaking it in a sink or bucket and it will become soft and supple again and can then be unfolded.

If required, the vest can be machine washed at 30 degrees celcius or hand rinsed in cool water. Only use non-biological powders/liquids. Do not use fabric conditioners or softeners, or dual action tablets.

 

Fleece Coats

Your fleece coat can be washed in a washing machine at temperatures up to 40 degrees celcius.


Only use non-biological powders/liquids. Do not use fabric conditioners or softeners, or dual action tablets.

Your fleece coat can be tumble dried on a low or no heat setting, but air drying is preferable.
