How do I take care of my technical gear?

I just wanted to high light the major points about the clothing!

  1. Wash all running clothing together in cool water, hang dry and do up all zippers.
  2. When doing laundry try and wash you garments inside out, and like fabrics together. Wash towels on their own.
  3. Do not run in clothing made from cotton! Cotton feels nice on, not nice to your body when wet. Cotton will hold up to 10 times it’s weight in water and cause chaffing.

Clothing

Technical running apparel can be the greatest gift runners can buy for themselves.  Moisture management is the key to technical clothing. The closer you are to being dry, the less likely you are to suffer from skin irritations and overheating. The clothing is lighter than a cotton T-shirt and dries quick; so you never get that weighed-down feeling on a hot, humid summer run. Technical apparel is fitted and flexible, allowing the best moisture-wicking capabilities, while still giving you full range of motion.
