DIRECT WATER REPELLANT (DWR)

DIRECT WATER REPELLANT (DWR)

The coating used in our weather resistant range (DWR) is fluorocarbon (PFC) free, this means it keeps the environment happy and adds volume to our path to sustainability. 

What is DWR?

This magical coating is added to various fabrics to add water resistance and durability. DWR is not 100% waterproof and is solely used as lamination to create a protective layer.

How long does it last?

How long a DWR coating lasts depends on garment use. DWR won't outlive the life of the garment but will ensure short adventures are dry adventures.

Product care

Use standard detergent, for example, don't use harsh ones like crease or stain removers, these will reduce the coating.
