Our Fabrics

Read about the fabrics used in our products and how to look after them.

Fabric Care

Whilst our products are machine washable (except for the PVC products: waders and ponchos) it is important to follow the instructions on the label when cleaning proofed fabrics.

Usually, a shake and/or wipe with a damp cloth will be enough to clean up the clothes, followed by hanging them until dry. Do ensure that the clothes are aired between uses to prevent mildew from developing. Machine washing should be used sparingly, as it does shorten the life of the coatings used for proofing and breathabililty. It is advisable to use a pure soap washing powder.

In particular, avoid usage of fabric conditioners as these leave a residue that affects the breathability of your garment, and avoid biological washing powders as these can de-activate the water repellant finish. Similarly, the waterproof coatings are not resistant to commercial stain removers.
