Product Care

Rinse and Dry

– Always rinse your waterproof garments in clean, fresh water after every use. Your perspiration contains bacteria, so does dirty water, these will multiply and eat your equipment if allowed to thrive. We do not recommend any detergents because they can damage the neoprene and or the nylon. Water is all you need.
– Air dry your garments away from sunlight and direct heat sources (do not leave on a radiator or in an airing cupboard). Extreme temperatures will cause damage and delamination. Machine washing, sun drying, cars in hot weather are all big no-no’s.
– DO NOT leave your garments damp or wet for long periods of time. This can cause mildew and mould and ultimately will delaminate the fabric and cause it to fail.

– Store in a cool, dry place away from sunlight, oil-based substances and chemicals.
– DO NOT leave your garments screwed up in a dry bag. Loosely fold or hang your waterproof garments and avoid unnecessary compression.
– MICE LOVE NEOPRENE. You have been warned. (Cheese no thanks! Give me an  Alder Wetsuits any day!)

– Avoid contaminating your garments with oil-based substances, sunscreen and insect repellent. Oils, chemicals and fuels will damage the technical fabric.
– Make sure your garments are cleared of abrasive dirt, sand or dried salt before each use (if salt water dries it leaves super abrasive crystals). Abrasives will destroy your damage your garment.
– UV is very bad, using a product in the sun is one thing, leaving it in the sun is quite another. Keep in the shade when not in use, and never expose to excessive direct sunlight.
