Rab Down & Synthetic Wash

$13.00 USD
By Rab

Refresh your kit with this specialist ecological detergent, suitable for all insulated apparel and sleeping bags.

Keep your gear in peak working condition with this specially formulated wash. Increase the lifespan of your kit, restore breathability, and neutralize odours.

Washing a technical garment removes contaminants, dirt, salts, and bacteria, which can all reduce performance and break down fabrics prematurely.

This gentle wash-in cleaner can be used in your washing machine or for handwashing, followed by a cool tumble dry cycle. Find the full instructions on how to wash an insulated item here.

For an all-in-one, reproofing wash for your hydrophobic down filled gear, we recommend using Nikwax® Down Wash Direct every second or third wash to maintain DWR and revitalise the water repellency of the down.


Our freight rates are calculated, depending on the size of the item/s you have in your order. The rates apply for the largest item in your order.

For Example: If you make the purchase of 3x beanies and 1x snowboard, as a snowboard is a largest item within the order, the large item shipping rate is applied. All smaller items are therefore freight-free. We also cap the freight costs at $15/$20 (within NZ) and cover any additional costs internally.
