H2Xtreme®

  • Routine product care and maintenance ensures the optimum performance of your H2Xtreme® garments.
    • Read the care label for specific washing/drying instructions.
      • According to best practices for most waterproof/breathable outerwear, it is recommended to wash according to the following usage:
        • Light activity (casual, walking): Wash after 20 to 30 days of use.
        • Heavy activity (skiing, running, hiking): Wash after 10 to 15 days of use.
        • Zip up all zippers and hook-and-loop closures to prevent snags, release tension on all elastic draw cords.
        • Wash with cold water on the gentle, low spin cycle with like colors.
        • Use mild detergent, preferably non-toxic and biodegradable.
        • Do not add fabric softener, the strong chemicals can break down waterproofing/DWR elements.
        • Dry your garments on tumble, low heat if recommended on the label. Alternatively, hang dry in a well-ventilated area.
        • Do not bleach. Do not dry clean.
        • If needed, iron on a cool setting to avoid damaging logos or material that comes in contact with high heat.

          H2X-Dry®

          • Read the care label for specific washing/drying instruction details.
          • Zip up all zippers and hook-and-loop closures to prevent snags.
          • Wash inside-out with cold water on the gentle, low spin cycle like colors.
          • Use mild detergent, preferably non-toxic and biodegradable.
          • Do not bleach. Do not dry clean.
          • Do not add fabric softener, the strong chemicals can degrade overall durability.
          • Air dry or tumble dry on low heat. High heat can reduce the H2X-Dry performance and contribute to static cling.
          • If needed, iron on a cool setting to avoid damaging logos or material that comes in contact with high heat.
