Product Care & Maintenance

Clothes with breathable and waterproof PU or DWR coating

The coating of jackets and trousers can be especially affected during contact with sweat and dirt. To keep the good condition of your clothes for longer, please follow these instructions:

  • hand wash with cold water (around 30°C)
  • do not soak the clothes
  • do not use chemicals like alcohol or gasoline
  • do not use softeners
  • do not tumble dry, instead line or drip dry them
  • use pure soap or soap flakes instead of detergent
  • do not dry clean
  • do not use hair spray
  • do not twist the fabric
  • do not iron, if absolutely needed - use the lowest setting as little as possible


We are aware that many people use laundry detergent, however it is recommended to use soap flakes instead. This is in order to protect the DWR (Durable Water Repellency) coating as much as possible - it repels liquids and causes water to run off in beads, helps the fabric to soak more slowly and maintains the body temperature.

Clothes with down lining

  • use only mild detergent
  • only use a tumble dryer until the fabric is completely dry
  • after drying, apply a water-repelling spray


  • rinse your sunglasses often, especially after contact with salt water, sweat or dirt
  • protect them from scratches and strong impacts
  • use only certified cleaning products


  • rinse often, especially after contact with salt water, sand or dirt
  • wash them soaked in mild detergent or soap
  • do not tumble dry


  • always store ropes in a dark, dry, cool and ventilated place - this ensures the best conditions to prolong their life
  • avoid excessive heat, sunlight and moisture, as well as contact with potentially harmful substances and chemicals
  • before storing, clean thoroughly and dry ropes that are heavily soiled
  • coil ropes in figure eights to prevent accumulating twist along them
  • Despite proper storing, the breaking load of a rope is reduced with time due to the polymer degradation. Therefore, after 5 or more years of storing, the rope must be assessed and tested and it is usually best to replace ropes older than 10 years.

Blocks, ratchet blocks, cam cleats

  • rinse frequently with fresh water, especially after contact with salt water, sand or dirt
  • clean them periodically with a detergent or soap water solution - spin or open them for better coverage and rinse
  • clean ratchet blocks more often, since their mechanism need more maintenance to function properly
