Under normal wearing and recommended washing conditions, Tech Wear’s exclusive IVX-400 material will maintain its usefulness and effectiveness for a minimum of 100 washings or two years, whichever comes first. Tech Wear warranties its products to be free of manufacturing defects. If you are not fully satisfied, notify Tech Wear immediately. Any garments which have been laundered, dry cleaned, altered, marked, or silkscreened/embroidered cannot be returned. To avoid pilling, do not expose ANY polyester knit fabrics to extremely abrasive conditions.

Cool or warm water wash with any commercially-available liquid detergent, tumble dry low heat or hang dry. DO NOT USE BLEACH OR FABRIC SOFTENERS. The carbon-suffused mono-filament nylon is sensitive to heat and should not be exposed to drying heat in excess of 120°F. Wash at 90°F (Maximum), and tumble dry at low heat or hang dry. This medium weight fabric will dry very quickly, and we recommend hang-drying for maximum life.
