Materials and care - Halti

Sports and outdoor clothing require maintenance and washing. When you take care of your clothes according to the care and washing instructions, you extend their useful life. Correct and regular maintenance of the products also contributes to the product's recyclability and durability. Halti's products are designed in accordance with the principles of sustainable development to withstand use and time.

Each Halti product comes with care instructions, which tell you the recommended washing and care instructions for that product, as well as the washing temperature. It is important that you follow these instructions. Do not store sports clothes when they are dirty, because then sweat and dirt will stick to the product and it will be more difficult to remove them. Also, the material's technical properties, such as breathability, can deteriorate when the product is dirty.

DrymaxX® products must be washed separately and turned inside out. Spinning, tumble drying and twisting the product may damage the product. The use of fabric softeners or detergents containing fabric softener is not recommended, as the ingredients of these substances can block the microscopic pores of the DrymaxX® film. In order for the DrymaxX® product to retain its properties, it should be impregnated with a impregnating agent intended for membrane clothing as needed. OLKiA's selection includes high-quality impregnating agents from Nikwax.

Washing and care instructions

  • Before washing, empty the pockets and remove the reflectors and other loose parts, close the zippers, stickers and snaps and Pre-treat the stains with a stain remover (check the color fastness of the material before treatment on an inconspicuous area).
  • Sort the laundry correctly according to colors and composition. Wash delicate and vulnerable materials separately and heavy outerwear separately. Use laundry bags if necessary.
  • Do not overfill the washing machine. Products are cleaned better in open water.
  • If the washing instructions say "wash separately", the product should be washed separately. This prevents possible discoloration and ensures that there are no detergent residues left in the product.
  • Be reasonable when dosing the detergent. If the product is only sweaty and not really dirty, even less detergent is enough. We recommend special detergents for technical clothes, OLKiA's selection includes Nikwax products
  • We do not recommend using fabric softeners or detergents containing them, as they may affect the functionality of the product.
  • There is no reason to leave the products in a closed drum after washing, but it is recommended to hang them to dry as quickly as possible after washing. Hang the clothes to air dry and use tumble drying if it is allowed in the washing instructions.
  • For Active Dry knitwear, such as t-shirts, we recommend a light rinse after each sweaty use. If the product has an unpleasant smell after washing, it can be neutralized in a generous amount of water with a splash of vinegar (just rinsing is enough, do not soak the product). Normal washing in the machine is recommended after this.
  • For down clothes, we recommend a liquid detergent intended for down products. Drum drying is recommended to restore the fluffiness of the product. If the down is still clumped together after washing, we recommend using a separate additional rinse program. This will remove any detergent residue from the down. If drum drying is not possible, the product should be dried in an airy place and the product should be fluffed occasionally.
  • It is also good to air the clothes between washes.
