Machine wash your Offshoroa waterproof and breathable salopettes at 30°C. Inside-out with hook and loop strips stuck together. Choose a long rinse and gentle spin cycle. Line dry if possible. Occasional tumble drying on low for a short period of time will improve the water repellent treatment. To reactivate the water-repellent treatment, you can also iron the fabric at a maximum temperature of 140°C or apply the Tribord re-waterproofing spray.
Store in a dry place, but do not leave your garment on a heat source such as a radiator, as this may damage the breathable membrane or coating.
FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT
- Dual-layer hydrophilic fabric - >10000 mm of water pressure. - Fully taped seams. - Inner flap - Bottom of the legs adjustable by rip-tab strip. - Tested under a simulated heavy rain shower (450 L/hr/sqm) for 4 hours.
RET <12: very breathable. To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance, or RET, (test based on the ISO 11092 standard). It is its ability to allow the water vapour produced by the body during exercise to escape.
- The waist is adjustable using semi-elasticated rip-tabs.
A large reflective 3M patch on the back intensifies low light sources. The Tribord logos are also reflective.
RESISTANCE TO WEAR
- Injected plastic central zip resistant to salt oxidation.
HOW TO REACTIVE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY step 1: before washing
Close all zips and flaps and remove any parts of the garment that cannot be washed. Also remember to loosen the straps and elastic parts and empty the pockets. Then turn the garment inside out to wash it.
HOW TO REACTIVE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY step 2: washing
You can wash your jacket on a synthetic cycle at 30° or 40°C with your usual detergent. Do not use fabric conditioner, which could damage the existing performance of the garment, or bleach. Also take care not to bend your jacket too much when you place it in the washing machine and do not overload your machine. Very important: select a thorough rinse or double rinse to completely remove all detergent residue.
HOW TO REACTIVE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY step 3: drying
Drying is a crucial phase in reactivating the water repellent treatment. We recommend that you lay your jacket flat on a clothes rack and leave it out to dry in the open. Caution: never dry your jacket directly on a radiator. Then place it in the tumble dryer on a short synthetics cycle, i.e. 10 to 15 minutes, before turning it back the right way round.
HOW TO REACTIVE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY
If, despite this procedure of washing and thorough rinsing followed by gentle drying in a tumble dryer, the drops of water no longer run off the surface of your jacket, we recommend that you "re-waterproof" it using a waterproofing spray or detergent sold in our stores.
