- Product Care
GORE-TEX® Outerwear Care:
Cleaning your GORE-TEX® garments regularly will extend the life of the product. It will also keep them breathable as dirt and oil can clog the GORE-TEX® membrane over time.
It is critical to wash jackets. Natural oils can damage the GORE-TEX® tape and adhesives causing a peeling effect.
Machine wash warm. Do not use fabric softener or bleach.
Remember to zip all pockets and close all Velcro cuffs before washing to prevent any damage caused by the machine.
Tumble dry on warm setting making sure not to use a high heat setting. Drying on warm will actually reactivate the DWR coating.
GORE-TEX® Performance Shell outerwear is waterproof, lightweight, durable and breathable. It’s designed to provide excellent, long-lasting performance in a wide range of conditions.
The AquaGuard® VISLON® zipper is a revolutionary new design from the global leader in containment closures. The AquaGuard® VISLON® zipper's new tooth design provides enhanced fluid repellency vs. coil or standard individual element closures, while increasing the number of design and color options for your application.
- perfect jacket for nasty weather Review by steelie D
OverallI just got this jacket, the gunbarrel color not the camo one, for a trip to the Oly Pen. it rained all 4 days I fished and floated, and this jacket is awesome. shedded the rain, brush, bushes perfectly, and the jacket feels almost as light and comfy as my arcteryx ski shell, but more bomber...plus it has a super comfy neck and chin protection, with a full coverage adjustable hood that you can tuck away under a Velcro tab... the wrist closures are big and perfect for gloves, and the pockets are low profile which I like since I wear a chest pack... i'm normally rowing a driftboat or pontoon and the less fabric/bulk on my front the better...I find that sometimes extra pockets like to grab oar handles... I HIGHLY recommend this jacket.
