Yikes... 

Anyway, I wanna settle this once and for all. I know people tumble dry their acrnm DS pants despite the care tag explicitly stating not to. For those that do, does it cause any issues?

Moved pretty far from my usual dry cleaner, so I'm considering other options.

i wash at 40C w/ nikwax tech with a double spin and then tumble on low for ~25 min. everything is fine: p23a, p30a, p35, p27h, la6a, s19, s24 etc etc

 

what i do notice is because my house water is hard, if i don't do the double spin, the clothes can get water stain marks. i'm getting a whole house water softening system soon... mostly for my skin, but the clothes will benefit too i guess lol

The first time I mistakenly left my P10DS in with the rest of my plebe clothes and subjected it the standard warm wash and mid temp tumbledry, and wore them with zero side effects, I realized that I’d be ignoring that care tag for the most part. And have for the last 4 years with all my other DS items lol. So yeah. I’ve washed all of my DS cold/warm and tumbled dry with zero ill effects.

Curious, does your DS still bead when cared for that way?

Yep. It’ll definitely bead more persistently with a fresh DWR application. Repetitive washes will diminish that obvs. But the quick drying characteristics are entirely fabric dependent and performance is unaffected, wash temp/dry temp or otherwise ime.

That's insightful. I've been relying on dry cleaning for any of my Dryskin pieces. I've also been super curious about whether or not to eventually reapply DWR to DS pants, and see conflicting feedback about that for some reason.

What do you guys use to reapply DWR to DS?

I remember reading that the DWR on DS is some proprietary substance that only works with DS.

This is exactly what I have read about it. But I would love for someone to prove that reproofing is a thing.

3xdry should last for around fifty washes at a warm temperature -- 40°c

reactivated using a tumble dryer or iron, personally i use an iron, works for me.

I spray it with grangers (as if it were a shell) and it reactivates the fuck out of the water resistance. My Acronym DS pieces do pill slightly over time but I think that's gonna happen either way.

Nothing has dropped yet, but I think he’s referring to the upcoming P41-DS

So many people have them at this point, I don't think it really matters anymore tbh. Retailer leash has loosened up significantly, it seems.

Here's one I missed. I'm not entirely sure what it is, but I've heard that it could be a new NG4 with different coloured zip options. Personally, I'm most excited for the new J16. It looks really good in Alpha Green. My guess is that it's going to be similar to the recent J69 with what looks like stretch panels and could get a -HY suffix. But what do I know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

Anyone else have a favourite or a planned purchase? I haven't seen the alleged new P23s yet but if they do drop, I'm definitely going to be trying to get a pair of those.
