PRODUCT:

FOLLOW THE CARE INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED WITH THE GARMENT
Care instructions are included on the product label located on the inside of most garments. Specific instructions provided by the manufacturer of technical fabrics should be followed in addition to the instructions we provide. We recommend following these instructions in order to maximize the garment’s performance and lifespan.

PREPARE YOUR GARMENT FOR WASHING
We recommend turning garments inside out, closing all zippers, emptying all pockets, and sealing all openings before washing. Again, please follow the wash instructions that came with your garment.

CONSIDER USING SPECIALTY CLEANING PRODUCTS MADE FOR TECHNICAL FABRICS
There are a variety of specialty cleaning products designed for washing technical fabrics. These products leave little-to-no residue, which can be a problem with traditional laundry detergents.

DURABLE WATER REPELLENT (DWR)
Most of our waterproof and water-resistant garments are treated with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating. Over time this coating needs to be replenished as the garment is exposed to use and washing. If your product no longer beads up when exposed to water it is a good indication that it is time to treat your garment with a DWR finish.

There are many good DWR products on the market available for purchase. We recommended McNett Revivex Durable Waterproofing Spray.

As a general rule, we recommend using a spray-on DWR treatment when you wish to reapply the treatment in between washes. Wash-in DWR treatments are recommended when laundering your garment.

We urge you to spot clean before applying DWR. Be sure to target seams and high-impact areas when applying. For the best results, we suggest hang drying your garment.

THE USE OF SUNSCREEN
BEING AN AQUATIC SPORTS APPAREL COMPANY WE YOU WILL SOMETIMES WEAR A SUNSCREEN FOR EXTRA PROTECTION WHILE OUT ON THE WATER. SOME SUNSCREENS CONTAIN Avobenzone which has a chemical reaction with iron particles that are found in water (this is especially pronounced if you have hard water) that causes, essentially, rust stains on the shirt that can sometimes be very hard to remove and in some cases not removed at all. There are different ways to go about removing Avobenzone stains if you search around. If you have more questions please contact us.

All of our products are designed at our headquarters in Florida. The majority of the finishing work including logo placement is handmade in our World Headquarters in Bonita Springs, FL. We are working to develop relationships with USA Manufacturers and have select products that are completely made in U.S.A. Some of our fabrics are milled in here in the USA as well. We strive to have as much manufacturing as we can within the United States however we currently work with factories in the U.S.A., China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Bangledesh, and Mexico.

We do not want to comprise the technical integrity of our products and have yet to find manufacturers domestically that can provide the capabilities for manufacturing our products. To be labeled Made in the USA laws require almost every material used in production to come from the USA, not just the production of the product. In our case for apparel that means from the thread, zippers and buttons even including the fabric need to be made here in the USA. Through the years we’ve not been unable to find US manufacturer capable of providing technical garments that can meet the Made in the USA requirements due to sourcing of materials or the skilled workforce to produce them. Quality is our absolute top priority and location will always be a consideration when selecting factories. However, our focus will remain on finding manufacturers that have socially responsible practices, the most skilled workers, advanced machinery, and technical expertise to for every product we produce.
