The Mountain Studio philosophy is that taking care and repairing worn or damaged garments is the best investment you can to - for your wallet and for the planet.
It does not only extend the life of the garments but also helps in reducing the environmental footprint by decreasing the need for manufacturing new items.
To ensure the functionality of your technical garment you need to wash and re-proof them. Dirt, sweat, salt etc. clog up the material and eventually water-repellency, breathability, and insulation ability will be reduced.
All our garments have care labels, and it is important to follow these instructions to get the most out of your garments and to ensure that the warranty stays valid. With most of our garments the instructions are quite straight forward and easy to follow.
But to help you out we have made some more detailed instructions on how to wash and take care of our Gore-Tex® and down garments.
