General care instructions

Textile

Never use cleaning products that contain bleach, solvents or other chemical products. Nor should you use washing powder. Never scrub waterproof or breathable membranes. Do not expose waterproof or breathable membranes to intense heat or prolonged direct sunlight. 

Always consult the wash and care label found inside your gear before washing. This set of instructions is leading over any other instructions given. If you are ever in doubt of how to properly maintain your gear, check the inner label.

• Before washing, remove all inner liners and armor
• Close all zippers and hook and loop fixtures to avoid damaging other fabrics on your garment
• You can wash your textile garments with waterproof and breathable membranes in the washing machine. Wash them separately on maximum 30° Celsius, on a gentle cycle.
• NEVER use any fabric softeners. They destroy the functionality of the membrane.
• Hang your textile garment out to drip dry at room temperature. DO NOT dry your textile garment in a dryer.

 

Leather

Never use cleaning products that contain bleach, solvents or other chemical products. Before using any cleaning product, try it at a discrete part of your garment (like the collar or inside/underneath the zipper) to see how the product reacts to the leather. If you are content with the result, proceed with the cleaning. Always respect the washing labels in your leather garment. Never wash or dry clean leather.

Always consult the wash and care label found inside your gear before caring your leather garment. This set of instructions is leading over any other instructions given. If you are ever in doubt of how to properly maintain your gear, check the inner label.

Suede:
Only use a brush to clean and care for the boot. Never use leather grease or shoeshine. You can treat the suede with a water repellent spray.

 

Gloves

It is recommended to clean and inspect your gloves after each use. Always consult the wash and care label found inside your gloves before caring for them. Please keep the following instructions in mind:

• Clean the gloves by hand using a damp cloth and do not use hot water
• Remove difficult stains by using neutral soap or a special leather or textile cleaner
• Do not allow your gloves to come in contact with solvents (do not use fabric softener!), petrol or cleaning agents. This could change the characteristic properties (e.g. the color) of your gloves
• Do not place your gloves near, or let your gloves get into contact with a direct heat source or direct sunlight, otherwise the material will become stiff
• Do not use a washing machine, dry cleaning or high pressure devices to clean the product, as high temperature and pressure may damage the product
• It is recommended that you store the gloves in a dry and well ventilated environment, out of sunlight and away from direct heat sources
• Make sure that your gloves are completely dry before you store them. When gloves are stored wet or in a non-ventilated area, this may cause deformations and damage your gloves
