How to Care for Lightweight Rain Shells and Outerwear

Lightweight wind shells and rain shells, including Vim and Vigor (made from Pertex® Quantum), are easy to care for. Unlike some fabrics that use a durable water repellant (DWR) finish, Pertex fabrics perform based on the engineering of the tight knit wovens.

To extend the life of these prodcuts do the following:

  • Spot clean as necessary
  • Air dry after use
  • Reduce wash cycles
  • Machine wash with like colors
  • If possible, use Sport Wash® which avoids clogging the pores of performance fabrics
  • Line dry, or tumble dry low without fabric softeners
