Do you throw your outdoor clothes in the washing machine with normal clothing? Don’t! Use a technical detergent and then impregnate (make water repellant) your clothing afterwards. Maintenance products from Grangers or Nikwax are perfect for this. A regular detergent is guaranteed to lose the waterproof qualities from your waterproof jacket or trousers.
Technical gear demands different maintenance methods. But don’t let that put you off: if you follow our tips, nothing will go wrong. Hiking boots, ski gear, down jackets, camping gear, cycling or running clothing: whatever it is, we’ve got your back!
