Snugpak Garment and Sleeping bag Care / Washing instructions.

Garment Care

 

Follow the care instructions that will be sewn into any particular Snugpak® product, our clothing can be machine washed on a cool and gentle setting (never more than 30°C/86°F) in a front loading domestic washing machine (we would advise against using a top loader as the agitator can damage the product)

Avoid the use of liquid detergent and fabric softeners as this can leave a residue on the garment, a low or fragrance free powder is ideal.

Zip the jacket up and ensure any drawcords are fully in the machine and not trapped in the door before starting.

We use a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish on all our nylon jackets & sleeping bags - water repellency can be maintained with a periodic re-treatment with suitable aftercare products such as Nikwax and Grangers.

 

Care of your sleeping bag

 

All Snugpak® bags are fully washable... by hand or even by washing machine. Instructions are given on the care label sewn into one of the inner seams.

However, even the highest grade filling will eventually lose some thermal efficiency and structure after repeated wash cycles, so machine washing in particular should not be done often. Whenever possible, instead of a full wash, we recommend the sponging of both inner and outer fabrics with soap and water. Then dry and air the bag thoroughly. Using a loose liner, which can be washed separately as often as you like, will undoubtedly extend you bags life. Some of the liners will also add warmth.

Zip up the sleeping bag and ensure any drawcords are fully in the machine and not trapped in the door before starting.

Do not store the bag compressed for long periods between uses. Whilst we sometimes roll sleeping bags at the factory for despatch we would not advise emulating this without special machinery. We suggest stuffing your sleeping bag into its compression sack.
