To give your down jacket the best conditions we recommend the following:
Our down jackets have received a durable water resistant finish. We recommend giving the jacket a new water resistant treatment after 4-5 washes.
It is characteristic of light-weight down jackets to have some down feather wandering, outside the jacket, during wear.
Down feathers are influenced by static electricity. Static electricity in man-made fibers and human bodies can effect the amount of down feather wandering, outside the jacket. Giving the jacket a new water resistant treatment or washing with fabric softener will help reduce this problem.
It is always a good idea to centrifuge your down jacket an extra time, to remove as much water as possible, before drying.
The down jacket must be dried in an electric dryer, along with a few tennis balls, to fluff-up the down feathers again. Be sure the jacket is 100% dry, to prevent clumping of the down, inside the garment.
It is always a good idea to shake the jacket now and then, to re-store lots of air in the down, resulting in more volume and a warmer garment.
