Filthy jacket

Recommended Posts

if it is waterproof and you wash it and it takes off the coating you can get re-proofers for them anyway. i know blacks and millets do them. you just chuck em back in the machine with the re-proofer.

maybe try a silk or woollen detergent and setting on your washer, nice and gentle

could ask at a dry cleaners too

Be careful!

The last time I washed my textile topcoat the suds spilled into the workings of the washing machine and blew the circuits.

If you use NikWax type stuff use less than you think you might need, or simply wash without any detergent.

After washing get some spray on waterproofer from a camping/outdoor shop and give a couple of coats, making sure to cover the seams properly.

On a trip to the Lakes I was completelydry except for two spots where there was a fancy tag sewn into the sleeves.

you could put the jacket on and sponge it down, that way the inside stays dry, and you can wash the whole jacket, then remove and air dry.. might want to get someone to do the back, but i find the flys/bugs can't catch me, and tend to get picked off as i chase them... lol

No lol, was just half way through my cbt and stopped for a brake. Couldn't be bothered to take my jacket off because it was cold.
