Der MEDVIND Fahrradjacken Care Guide

The MEDVIND cycling jacket care guide

Here are comprehensive care instructions for your Medvind cycling jacket 🧼:

Washing instructions:

  1. Frequency : Wash your jacket every 15-20 wears or when it is visibly dirty. Washing too often can damage the material, washing too infrequently can impair the water-repellent function.

  2. Preparation : Close all zippers and attach any Velcro before washing. This prevents damage to the fabric.

  3. Wash Settings : Use a gentle wash program with cold water. Hot water can damage the fabric.

  4. Detergent : Use a mild detergent. Avoid fabric softeners, bleach, or detergents with harsh chemicals as they can damage the water-repellent coating.

  5. Hand wash (optional) : If you prefer, you can also hand wash your jacket. Use lukewarm water and a small amount of mild detergent. Gently rub dirty areas.

Stain removal:

  1. Act quickly : Treat stains immediately. The longer a stain remains, the harder it is to remove.

  2. Blot, don't rub : Use a damp cloth to blot the stain. Rubbing can push the stain deeper into the fabric.

  3. Stain remover : If water doesn't work, use a polyester-safe stain remover. Test it on an inconspicuous area first.


  1. Air dry : Hang your jacket in a well-ventilated area to dry. Avoid direct sunlight as it can fade the fabric.

  2. No Heat : Do not use a dryer as heat can damage the fabric and water-repellent coating.

Impregnation (re-waterproofing):

  1. Frequency : Waterproof your jacket once a year or when you notice that water no longer rolls off the surface.

  2. Product selection : Use a waterproofing spray suitable for polyester. We have developed a tested and tested waterproofing spray specifically for the Medvind jacket. Take a look at our site here 😉.

  3. Application : Follow the instructions of the waterproofing product. Typically, you'll spray the jacket evenly when it's clean and dry, then let it air dry.

Additional tips:

  • Care for the fingerless gloves : They can be washed normally in the laundry. Remember to impregnate them before the next use to ensure waterproofness.
  • Storage : Store your jacket in a cool, dry place. Avoid compressing them as this can damage the fabric and reduce its water-repellent properties.

By following these care instructions, you will ensure that your cycling jacket stays in top condition and provides you with comfort and protection during your cycling adventures.
