How to Care For Your Wetsuit
We’re fans of taking care of our gear. Our belief is that if we invest in high quality pieces that are crafted well and we take care of them, they’ll last longer and stay out of the landfill.
Below you’ll find some suggestions on how to get the most out of your new premium rubber and to ensure it keeps you warm for multiple winter seasons.
Cleanliness is Key
Get a tub of cool water and add non-toxic wetsuit cleaner or gentle soap. Open all the zippers and turn it inside out, submerging it in the water. Knead the soap or cleaner into the suit and let it sit awhile. Rinse with cool water and hang it to dry out of direct sunlight.
Don’t Rough It
Avoid changing on rough surfaces like asphalt. We suggest standing in a bucket that can double as a wetsuit container once you’re done.
Shade is Your Friend
Avoid hanging your suit in the direct sunlight. UV rays can break down the suppleness and longevity of the neoprene.
