Upon production, SCOTT GORE-TEX® garments and gloves have a water repellent treatment. This treatment prevents the fabric from attracting moisture and dirt, while simultaneously giving optimal moisture vapor transportation to the fabric. Over time, the water repellency will be worn away (especially in vulnerable places like the seat, knees, shoulders, elbows and hands). In order to maintain this water repellency, the garments and gloves should be re-impregnated after each wash (before drying), or when the water repellency is no longer performing. For water repellency treatments, you can use a re-impregnation spray which ensures that only the outer side of the garment and glove will be water repellent. This will again, optimize the moisture transportation of your SCOTT product.
