How do I wash my down jacket?

While it is possible to wash your down jacket, we recommend that you have your jacket professionally cleaned by a service that specializes in cleaning down.

To machine wash:

•  Zip all zippers and attach all hook & loop fasteners.

•  Turn garment inside out.

•  Use only front-loading washing machine

•  Use mild powder detergent – Please do not use liquid detergent.

•  Wash in cold water/gentle cycle.

•  Use 2 rinse cycles

•  After washing, remove jacket and gently squeeze out excess water

•  Lay jacket on a towel and press with a clean towel on top to absorb excess water

•  Drying could take several hours

•  Tumble dry in large commercial dryer on low heat

•  Check garment every 15 minutes for overheating and to fluff out any clumps of down that may have developed.  Gently shake and redistribute down as it is drying

•  When jacket is nearly dry, lay flat or hang to finish drying completely

•  DO NOT use top-loading washing machine

•  DO NOT use bleach, liquid detergent, or fabric softener

•  DO NOT dry out in the sun (UV can damage the nylon fabric)

•  DO NOT store garment when it is wet
