Waterproof jackets, pants & drysuits
Our XP fabrics are highly waterproof, breathable and durable. Palm garments are made for life on the river or at sea, but to keep them waterproof and breathable for longer, just follow a few simple steps:
Caring for your Gear
When packing your gear away, fold it up loosely and take care not to let latex seals come into contact with abrasive dirt, sand or oil-based substances (including sunscreen and insect repellent).Try not to leave your gear in a damp condition for long periods.Hand wash or machine wash on a gentle/delicate cycle at a maximum temperature of 30 ˚C.We recommend washing with Granger’s Performance Cleaner liquid detergent.We also recommend that you spray the outside of your garment with Granger’s XT Proofer to renew the DWR.Do not tumble dry. Hang your gear out of direct sunlight to dry naturally.Once dry, check to see if any repairs are necessary (we provide an excellent repair service).Store in a cool, dry place away from sunlight.Don’t pile your gear high, or stuff it all back into one bag. Avoid compressing your gear.
To help you get the right fit please use the below charts as a guideline, but if you can get to your local Canoe and Kayak store to try on an item then please do for a more accurate fit.
