CARE

We uses a variety of fabrics and materials to make our products. They give you freedom of movement, breathability, wind proofing, waterproofing and warmth. They each need their individual care to prolong the life of the product.

This is only for general guidance and it always best to check the label for the correct care instructions.

Only wash your garments when it becomes necessary, frequent washing can damage the technologies incorporated in the fabrics.

Before washing remove any detachable accessories, such as faux fur trims and close all the fasteners. Wash with other similar colour clothing.

Never use biological detergents as these would be detrimental to the clothing fabric.
Only use Non biological detergents. Do not use fabric softener as these can harm the breathability and moisture management of your garments. (Check that your detergents do not have fabric softener included)

Do NOT use bleaching agents and make sure your detergents do not have a bleaching agent within them.

Check individual garment care label instructions for drying. 

Do not iron on prints, badges, reflectors, or embroidery.

Our waterproof garments have an outer durable water repellent (DWR) coating to the surface of the fabric. Salt, dirt, wear and tear or repeated washing can lead to this treatment wearing off leaving the clothing less durable. Retreating your garment can be done but we recommend only doing this when it is necessary, and it feels like your coat is leaking. We recommend using Nikwax Tech Wash to clean our waterproof garments and Nikwax TX Direct to reproof. 

To check whether your waterproof garment needs washing and reproofing pour some water from a cup onto the sleeve. If it beads and rolls off the fabric it is fine and does not need treating. 

Our waterproof garments also have waterproof membranes and taped seams to the underside of the fabric. These can become brittle and crack if subject to high temperatures which will affect the life of garment.  Do not hang waterproof garments on radiators or towel rails to dry. Place on a garment hanger and leave in a vented area to dry.

WARRANTY / FAULTY GOODS

What happens in the unlikely event that I have a faulty product? 
Within the first six months, from the purchase date, you can claim for a repair of the product. If we are unable to repair, then we will replace it for the same product or the most like-for-like product. You may also ask for a credit to use at a later date (to use within six months). We can only offer a refund on products purchased within the first 30 days.

In order to make a claim, we require the following information, sent by email

  • proof of purchase (receipt, bank statement, order confirmation)
  • details of what the problem is (please include as much information as possible. How often the product is used. What you were doing when the fault occurred)
  • photo(s) of the issue 
  • Batch number (if available)

Only the person/ company who bought the item can make a claim. Therefore any faulty products purchase from a third party reseller, should be returned to them, under the same terms stated above.  

On receipt of your email, we will then advise (with 5 working days),whether we agree the goods have a genuine manufacturing fault, or the fault has appeared through general wear and tear. Any goods deemed faulty through general wear and tear or misuse, will not be offered repair, replacement or a credit. The manufacturer's decision is final. 

If the fault has appeared within 60 days of purchase, we will arrange collection of the goods, or refund the purchasers costs up to £10 (inc. VAT). After that, all goods should be returned at the purchasers cost. 

Please note - we do not class detached buttons as faulty. If you require a spare button, please contact the office.
