Wash in warm water with mild detergent. Best to hang dry. Tumble drying puts unnecessary wear and tear on garment and causes premature pilling. Do not dry clean or iron. Best to wash your synthetic clothing together (polypropylenes, polyesters, nylons, etc) so lint does not build up on it during washing.

Helly Tech & Other Shells

Wash in warm water with a technical wash product. Secure all Velcro® adjustments, zip up all zippers including main zipper and adjust all draw cords to minimize ability to tangle around wash machine agitator. Do not use fabric softener as it breaks down Helly Tech. Tumble dry on low heat for 10-15 minutes. Do not dry clean or iron.

Leather – Salt is leathers worst enemy! After being exposed to salt, clean with a brush or wet sponge as soon as possible to maintain the integrity of the product. Dry the shoes with a dry cloth to absorb moisture. Never dry in unnatural conditions or direct sunlight. Apply an oil based, neutral leather cream to the shoes, in order to retain the value of the grain. Do a patch test in a discrete area before applying all over. If discoloration occurs, remove cream immediately. Synthetic – Wash away any stains with water and a brush. Some synthetics can be washed in a washing machine at a maximum temperature of 30 degrees Celsius (refer to the care instructions provided in the box). Dry shoes at room temperature using paper to absorb moisture. Never use a dryer.

    • Follow the washing instructions and clean the garment regularly to maintain the quality of the product.
