|Made From||3-layer 160g Gelanots®|
Gelanots® uses a three-layer construction: an outer base fabric, a hydrophilic membrane, and a mesh liner. The membrane breathes via a process called a molecular transfer of moisture. Water vapour from perspiration passes through the membrane and rain is repelled. This ensures you remain comfortable and dry in all conditions. For a three-layer fabric Gelanots® is very light and supple. Earth Sea Sky use two different qualities, a 125g/m2 ripstop nylon for lightweight multi-sport and travel garments and a 160g/m2 nylon for tramping and mountaineering.
Warm hand wash for best garment life. Use pure soap or mild detergent. We have tested and recommend Lux flakes, Sunlight soap, or Persil Sensitive. Lux and Sunlight soap need to be fully dissolved in hot water before converting it to warm. Do not use bleach. Rinse well to remove all residues. Do not wring. Drip dry in the shade to minimise UV exposure. Do not tumble dry. Cool iron may be used to rejuvenate the exterior DWR (durable water repellent) coating. Do not dry clean.
Keeping waterproof breathable garments clean will increase their lifespan. During normal wear, dirt, salts and oils from contact with the skin will accumulate on the inside surface. This will show as a dark stain on the mesh, especially around the neck and hood. If left over an extended period of time, this may contaminate the laminate or coating and cause irreversible damage to the jacket. To prevent this happening the garment should be washed at least once a year and more often if worn regularly. Hanging up garments in dry well ventilated areas will prevent mildew building up on the fabric's underside. Avoid all contact with solvents and chemicals, accidental contact should be washed off as soon as possible.
