PRODUCT CARE INFORMATION


VIRTUS 3 LAYER JACKET SYSTEM | Proteus, Astraes, Helios

  • WHY SHOULD YOU CLEAN YOUR VIRTUS ECLIPSE™ BARRIER TECH? 

Regular care and upkeep are essential for the optimal performance of your VIRTUS ECLIPSEjacket. Build-up of sweat, dirt, and body oils can compromise the membrane and the effectiveness of the textile Durable Water Repellent treatment. This treatment lets water roll off the surface of your garment, aka beading.

Routine washing and reapplication of the DWR treatment can restore and extend the lifespan of your garment.

  • WHEN SHOULD YOU WASH YOUR VIRTUS ECLIPSE™ BARRIER TECH GARMENT?

This all depends on how often and in which manner you use your gear. For example, if you use it for running, ski-touring, mountain climbing or any other high-intensity extreme sports, wash every 10-12 days of use. If you use it for more leisurely and low-intensity activities, wash every 20-30 days of use.

  • HOW TO PREPARE YOUR GARMENT FOR WASHING?

STEP ONE
Close all zippers on your jackets and release tension on all elastic drawcords. Empty all pockets and loosen your Velcro® cuff. 

STEP TWO
Place your garment in the washing machine and add cleaning agent. Wash on cold or medium heat using the regular cycle setting with second rinse cycle.

STEP THREE (if necessary)
If your garment no longer beads up when exposed to water, it is time to treat your garment with a new DWR treatment.

STEP FOUR
Remove the garment from the machine and shake off excess water and hang dry. 

Please consider using special cleaning products made for technical fabrics. Do not use any fabric softeners or dryer sheets on DWR garments.
