GORE-TEX®/Windstopper®

Wash. Dry. Repeat often.

Your Gore-Tex garment will shed dirt, water and mud, as long as the DWR is new and working well. We recommend that you wash your jacket as soon as it starts to “wet out” or when mud and dirt start to cling to the surface.

It is important to keep the garment clean, this will help to repel dirt, mud and keep you dry. It also insures that the garment will continue to work as new.

Before laundering your garment, zip the front closure, pockets and pit zips completely, and fasten all flaps and straps. Be sure to follow the care label instructions on your product to ensure high performance.

wash WASH

Machine wash on a warm cycle (105º F/40º C) using a small amount of liquid detergent. Rinse twice, minimise spinning to reduce creasing. Do not use powder detergents or any products that contain fabric softeners, conditioners, stain removers or bleach as they will affect garment performance. Do not wash with heavily soiled clothing.

Bleach BLEACH

Do not use chlorine bleach.

dry DRY
Line dry your garment, or tumble dry it on a warm, gentle cycle. Once it is dry, tumble dry your garment for 20 minutes to reactivate the durable water-repellent (DWR) treatment on the outer fabric.

Iron IRON
If unable to tumble dry, iron the dry garment on gentle setting (warm, no steam) by placing a towel or cloth between the garment and the iron. This will help reactivate DWR treatment on your garment’s outer fabric.

dry-clean DRY CLEAN
Gore recommends home laundering. If professional dry cleaning is necessary, request that the cleaner use clear distilled hydrocarbon solvent for rinsing. After dry cleaning, the garment’s outer fabric will need a new water-repellent treatment. Follow your garment manufacturer’s instructions.

water-repellent WATER REPELLENT TREATMENT
When the factory applied treatment can no longer be reactivated, apply a new water-repellent treatment (available at local outdoor retailers) to the garment’s outer fabric. We recommend ReviveX Durable Water Proofing.

 

 

 

Oro Jacket

The Oro jacket is unique in that it doesn’t have the outer face fabric that can wet out nor does it have DWR coating that needs to be reapplied on occasion. It still needs to be washed to keep the membrane pores clear of oils and dirt.

Before laundering your garment, zip the front closure, pockets and pit zips completely, and fasten all flaps and straps and place in the provided garment washing bag.

Machine wash on a warm cycle (105º F/40º C) using a small amount of liquid detergent. Rinse twice, minimise spinning to reduce creasing. Do not use powder detergents or any products that contain fabric softeners, conditioners, stain removers or bleach as they will affect garment performance. Do not wash with heavily soiled clothing.
