We recommend that you wash your product using a non-bio detergent on a gentle 86°F cycle with a spin of no more than 600rpm. Washing your clothing on a high wash can result in color fading and damage to the waterproof membrane in waterproof products. As for drying we recommend you leave your clothing to drip dry.
How often your Hound & Hare kit needs reproofing depends on the amount and type of usage it receives. To ensure long service it is essential that you check the garment regularly. If after wearing the kit in light and short showers you notice water is no longer beading off of the kit in certain areas you may want to use a Water Repellent spray to reproof those areas. When inspecting your kit pay particular attention to critical places such as the shoulders, seams and areas most subjected to friction e.g. creases in sleeves, elbows and knees. From time to time the whole garment will need reproofing. Use only approved Water Repellent Spray as some other may be less effective or in fact harm the material.
Something like a Nikwax TX Direct Spray On or Nikwax TX Direct Wash In will help reproof. Or something like this of similar quality will help maintain the waterproof garment.
