Care & Sustaining Performance
As with all down products, try to avoid getting the down filling of your jacket wet. If you would like to clean it please follow these instructions:
- Hand wash in warm water at 30°C/86°F. MONTANE® & Above and Beyond recommend that you use a down specific hand wash detergent.
- Do not use fabric softeners or bleach.
- Tumble dry on low setting, stopping occasionally to loft the down by hand. Consider using an industrial tumble drier for better results.
