With winter coming to a close, and spring around the corner, we are starting to rotate into our new gear for the upcoming season. After a typical lengthy Edmonton winter, our jackets start to get worn down with extended wear from this vicious weather.
As physical activity and general wear causes our down garments to become dirty, the technical aspects take a step backwards due to the grime built up within the feathers. This creates clumped feathers with in the jacket resulting in less loft and the ability to hold heat. When this happens, a jacket laundering is very beneficial to restore the performance and longevity of the piece. Below is a step by step video guide to fully launder your down apparel after a season, or multiple, of wear.
If you do not feel like washing your jacket yourself or are unsure about the process, Arc’teryx West Edmonton is putting on a laundering event for your down garment. Come join them for a night of washing, entertainment, food, and refreshments if you would like their knowledgeable team to handle your garment for you.

After a long Edmonton winter, the extended wear during the season leaves our warm gear used and dirty. To maintain the performance and longevity of the coat, down insulation needs love and care. Come join us and welcome in spring at our down jacket wash event on April 11th, 2018.
