Contrary to popular belief, washing your jacket doesn't wear it out—in fact, it prolongs the life of your jacket. Washing and drying your down jacket is easy; it just takes a few simple tricks to keep the down nice and fluffy. Follow these steps for a warm, clean jacket on your next adventure.

We recommend you use a down wash that's low in chemicals and as environmentally friendly as possible, such as Granger's (linked in the tools section below).

Front loading washers are gentler on clothes than top loaders so less chance of damaging relatively delicate down jackets.
