Sleeping Bags:

Zip up all zippers, attach all Velcro, and turn the bag inside out.  Wash in a front-loading machine with cold water on the gentle or delicate setting.  We recommend that you use the minimum amount of cleaning agent and scrub the head and foot sections before washing the entire bag.  Use at least two rinse cycles to get all of the soap out of the garment.  For down, use a mild powder soap, or special down soap (available at outdoor product stores).  For synthetic bags, use a mild powder soap or special synthetic cleaning product.


Lift bags by carefully carrying them from the bottom when transporting from washer to dryer.  Tumble dry in a large commercial dryer on low heat; it's important that the dryer is large enough for the bag to flop freely around.  Drying takes several hours, and you should check your bag often to ensure it's not overheated.


As a down bag dries, look for clumps of wet down and shake the bag gently to redistribute the down.  Sometimes the down in the draft tube will need some gentle massaging during the drying cycle.  As a synthetic bag dries, check for even distribution of fill material.  Gently massage the bag if any bunching is detected.


Both our down and synthetic sleeping bags can be professionally washed.  Check the yellow pages under camping, backpacking, or mountaineering equipment for folks who specialize in cleaning outdoor products.  Your local retailer may also be able to refer you.  Never dry clean a Mountain Hardwear sleeping bag - the chemicals used are harmful to the fabrics and filling and will severly reduce loft and thermal efficiency.


Here's a list of no-no's for cleaning your sleeping bag:


Don't use a top-loading washing machine (agitator will destroy the baffles in the bag).

Don't use liquid soap or detergent, or a very strong soap or detergent.

Don't use your home dryer - they've been known to melt holes in fabric.

Do not lift your bag from one end when wet (lift the entire bag all at once from underneath).

Do not store in a stuff sack (use a larger storage sack which allows for air circulation).

Do not dry in the sun (the UV will damage the nylon).
