Care Guide

In terms of underwear of functional textiles, it is best to always first take a look at the sewn-in label with care instructions. On it you will find usually the most important thing for your favorite piece. As a rule, fabric softener should not be used. Functional clothing may/must be cared for and washed regularly: Salts and fats from sweat should be washed out of the fabric.

Waterproof jackets with Sympatex membrane

A real advantage of the Sympatex membrane: it has no pores, but works on a purely chemical-physical principle. On the one hand, the membrane absorbs moisture from the body and releases it to the outside. On the other hand, the non-porous structure prevents the penetration of water from the outside.

This makes clothing with Sympatex equipment extremely easy to clean, so that the clothing retains its full performance even with more frequent washes. So whether you wash the garments often or less frequently - 100% function and optimal breathability remain guaranteed.
