To properly care for your The North Face jacket, you should consider the material type of your jacket and read the precise cleaning instructions on the label inside your garment.
Whether you've opted for a 3-in-1 Triclimate Jacket or a Deptford Down Jacket , your jacket has its own care guidelines and it's important that you adhere to them to keep it in pristine condition throughout your adventures.
How to take care of a The North Face jacket
As mentioned above, all The North Face jackets have their own cleaning instructions specified on the label inside the garment, detailing how to care for and wash them. There is no one ultimate method to care for your jacket as each one differs depending on the material used for each collection.
However, there are a few steps you can take to maintain your jacket's condition outside of the label instructions for all The North Face models. Anyone can learn to care for their jacket, regardless of their material. Avoid thorny branches when you go for a walk in the woods, clean up mud stains as soon as you get home, and hang your jacket up to prevent wrinkles. All of this will help extend the life of your jacket and keep its appearance.
How to wash a North Face jacket
The cleaning and washing method depends on the material of the garment. Some jackets can be machine washed cold, while others should be hand washed or professionally dry cleaned instead.
How to wash a waterproof jacket
Whether the outer portion of your The North Face jacket is FutureLight or DryVent fabric like the Sangro Jacket , cleaning instructions are often the same, and washing your waterproof jacket regularly can actually help maintain its durable water repellent (DWR) coating.
Our FutureLight jackets are machine washable. We recommend that you zip up all zippers and close all Velcro closures before washing, including those on the sleeves which can sometimes be overlooked. You should use a delicate powder detergent, not a liquid, before washing in cold water on a gentle cycle. In order to remove all laundry residue, we recommend that you double the rinse cycle before hanging your jacket to air dry.
