Product Care

Your dryer is evil:

Well, maybe not evil, but to get the maximum life out of your new Gulch hunting apparel we recommend that you wash in cold water, gentlest cycle, and DO NOT DRY IN THE DRYER.  Please air-dry by hanging on a plastic hanger.  Your dryer is basically a large rock tumbler that sucks the life out of your garments and does microscopic damage to the fabric.  Every time it goes around, stress is put on the fibers of the fabric and starts to break them down.  Your dryer's lint tray is filled with the evidence from these tiny tears in the fabric's fibers, and over time cause your clothing to fall apart.  To get the maximum life out of your apparel, please air-dry your Gulch gear after washing.  As required by the FTC, each of our garments has a manufacturer's recommendation label permanently attached and are listed below.

Snags & Tears

If you find a snag, do not tug at it, cut it away, or burn/melt with a flame.  This will produce a larger snag, or even worse, a noticeable hole in your garment.  

Locate the snag and using only your fingers carefully pull around the bunched area and smooth to reset the fibers into place.  Do this for both sides by turning the garment inside out and using your fingers to carefully work out the snag by manipulating the fabric.  For a more extreme snag, one that has been pulled out and separated, we recommend using a fabric glue on the inside of the garment covering the snagged area to lock the broken thread in place.

For a small tear, you can use a thread and needle to carefully sew around the hole to keep the threads from expanding and set on the underside of the garment with fabric glue.
