Caring for your Parka
The outershell fabric is treated with special polymers that prevent the fabric from absorbing moisture, by making water bead up and roll off to minimize condensation within the garment and maximize breathability. Over time your garment will absorb oil and dirt, the polymers break down, and the waterproof and breathability qualities are reduced. Therefore it is essential to keep your parka clean.
- Wash outershell in warm to cold water with like colors.
- Faux fur around the hood is detachable. Remove before washing.
- Use a mild detergent, never use liquid detergents. For the best performance we recommend washing your parka using Nikwax.
- Tumble dry on a medium heat to help redistribute the polymers on the fabric surface.
Complimentary parkas once shipped in plastic bags. Now each parka arrives in a reusable bag, thanks to Ship to Shore Traveler's forward and original thinking. As the bag states, it can be reused as a laundry bag, for beach cleanup, storage and other practical uses. Now guests can feel doubly good about their Lindblad-National Geographic Expedition polar parkas!
