eVent® Care Instructions
Therefore, it’s important to wash your jacket when it starts to look dirty, or if water is no longer ‘beading’ on the surface of the fabric.
Please follow the washing instructions label inside your garment carefully:
1. Close the main & pit zippers, but leave the pocket zips open. Release the tension on all elastic drawcords & secure the Velcro cuff at it’s widest.
2. Wash your garment in the machine with a non-bio detergent at a maximum of 40°c. It’s recommended to use a second rinse cycle to remove any residual soap.
3. Remove your garment from the machine and shake off any excess water.
4. If possible, dry your garment in a tumble dryer on a low heat setting, checking it at regular intervals. This will help to re-activate the DWR. If you don’t have a tumble dryer you can hang it over a gentle heat source, ie a radiator, or inside an airing cupboard, or you can also iron the face side of the fabric as long as you have a tea towel between the iron and the fabric, and the iron is set to a low-medium heat.
How to re-apply Durable Water Repellent (DWR) to your jacket
If your garment is no longer beading water, you may like to try washing and drying it first as this can help to restore the DWR performance, as a build up of dirt, sweat and body oils can have an effect. If you’ve washed your garment and water is still not beading you will need to re-apply DWR. This can be easily done in the washing machine or as a spray treatment. We recommend Grangers or Nikwax, and these products can be found online or in most Outdoor retailers. Please follow the instructions on the manufacturers packaging.
Dupont Teflon Down Care Instructions
Down is best washed only if necessary, as it’s essential to make sure the down is completely dry and this can take a few hours. If your garment is showing signs of dirt or sweat, or the down is starting to lose loft or clump, it’s probably best to give it a wash.
We would recommend using a Down specific detergent, for example Nikwax Down Wash Direct.
1. Hand or machine wash on a gentle 40°c cycle. It’s recommended to use a second rinse cycle to remove any residual soap.
2. Remove your garment from the machine and carefully shake off any excess water, supporting the weight of the garment as it will be heavier than usual.
3. Dry your garment in a tumble dryer on a low heat setting, checking it at regular intervals. It’s a good idea to add dryer balls or a tennis ball wrapped in some socks, to aid in the loosening of the down. You will also need to manipulate the down within the baffles to restore loft.
Ensure your garment is completely dry before storing to avoid clumping or mould.
We ensure that all our Down is ethically produced and RDS certified as being from non-live pluck sources.
