If everything fits, we recommend that you wash some of the items before wearing them.

SUPERIOR WASHABILITY – TEST RESULTS
No shrinkage when drying at elevated temperature.
An Independent Lab has washed the Baselayer Tops and Bottoms in field laundry operations. After over 100 industrial washes there was only 1% shrinkage and the garments remained soft to the touch.
WHY DIAMONDOWN™ DRIES QUICKLY
Diamondown™ usually dries quickly in the drier because the Biregional Fibers do not retain water.
Diamondown™ has its own built-in SELF-DRYING CAPABILITY for perspiration occurring during use – superior wicking and moisture handling to keep moisture off feet and body.
