Noticed especially recently my jacket needs a wash but I don't wanna wash it normally and lose the waterproofness. So what products/techniques would you guys recommend?

Suppose it differs by make of jacket. Now I could be wrong but usually there is a tag inside. On it there are some kind of washing instructions usually written in a code that can only be understood by someone qualified to drive a washing machine.

Make sure you give it to someone qualified who you trust, I did with my RST on a few occasions, no problems to date. :rolleyes:

My Duke of Edinburgh leaders tell me to wash all their hiking gear with Non Biological washing powder.
Apparently that is what you are supposed to wash waterproof stuff with...

I would be tempted to simply run it through a water only wash if im honest with you as my gear doesn't really get all that dirty / sweaty as I wear clothes under every layer.
And I would also get some kind of waterproofing spray to put on afterwards maybe?

was at my local bike garage today get my pirellis fitted :D and while waiting in the shop had a look round and saw this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/STORM-WAS...169?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item2314c889d9 ask the guy if it works and he said 'we only sell stuff that works, not the cheap nasty shite' cost £11.99 in the shop for the pair, ones to wash it and the other is to re-waterproof it. all in one wash too, put the wash stuff in the normal detergent compartment and the water proofing stuff in the conditioner part so it washes it seperately :) need my textiles washing soon so gonna get some and give it a go :D ohh and that price in the shop was one that is for 4 washes not just one :p
