When it comes to taking care of your The North Face jacket, you’ll need to take into consideration the type of material that your jacket is made of and the clearly defined cleaning instructions laid out on the tag inside your garment.
Whether you’ve opted for a Triclimate 3 in 1 or a Deptford Down Jacket, your jacket will have specific care recommendations and it’s important that you pay attention to them to ensure your jacket stays in top condition for all your adventures.
How to take care of The North Face jacket
As mentioned above, all The North Face jackets come with specific cleaning instructions highlighted on the tag inside the garment, which details how you should look after and wash your jacket. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to taking care of your jacket because the methods of care for each collection depend largely on the material the jacket is made of.
However, aside from cleaning your jacket according to the particular instructions on the label, there are a few things you can do to preserve the condition of your jacket which generally applies to all The North Face jackets. Looking after your jacket when you’re wearing it is something that everyone can do, regardless of the material. Simply avoiding prickly branches when you’re out for a walk in the woodland, spot cleaning/brushing mud marks when you return home and hanging to prevent creasing will all help to prolong the life and appearance of your jacket.
How to wash The North Face jacket
The garment material will affect how your jacket can be cleaned and washed; some jackets can be machine washed on a cool cycle in your washing machine, whereas others might need to be hand washed or dry cleaned by a professional.
How to wash a waterproof jacket
Whether your The North Face jacket’s outer shell is made from FutureLight or DryVent fabric like the Sangro Jacket, the cleaning instructions are often the same and washing your waterproof jacket regularly can actually help to maintain its durable water repellent (DWR) coating.
Our FutureLight jackets are machine washable and we recommend you zip all zips and close all Velcro fastenings before washing, including those on the sleeves which can sometimes be forgotten. You should use a mild powder detergent and not a liquid, before washing in cold water on a gentle cycle. To ensure the detergent residue is completely washed out, we advise you to put your jacket through the rinse cycle twice before hanging to dry naturally.
