Care Instructions for your Stock+Stein®Wear

A real plus for the SympaTex® membrane – it has no pores and instead works on a purely chemical and physical principle. The hydrophilic (water-attracting) components of the Sympa- Tex® membrane absorb moisture from the body and transport it to the outside so that it can evaporate. At the same time the poreless structure of the membrane prevents the ingress of rain. This means clothing which features SympaTex® products are extremely easy to look after. Since unlike porous membranes the SympaTex® membrane cannot be blocked by either sweat (salt crystals) or dirt. That means washing the garments each time after wearing is not necessary in order to maintain the function of the membrane. Detergent tensides can also not affect the poreless membrane which means that the garments retain their full performance even after frequent washing. So it does not matter whether you wash the garments more or less often – 100% function and optimal breathability remain guaranteed.


  • See care label. Windmaster: please close zipper.
  • Easily washable at 40ºC (Rainmaster and Windmaster) and 30ºC (Wintermaster and Coldmaster) using a gentle cycle
  • Low load volume
  • Fine detergent or special detergent for functional textiles
  • Do not use standard detergent with optical brighteners or bleach
  • Do not use softener (it will damage the impregnation)
  • Reduced spin speed (easy care)

DRY CLEANING (only Wintermaster and Windmaster)

  • Dry cleaning is possible but not necessary
  • See care label


  • We recommend the use of a tumble drier as it activates the impregnation
  • Dry at a low temperature and at low speed

REIMPREGNATION (except Coldmaster)

  • Washing and/or rain will wash out the impregnation of the upper material. Reimpregnate the upper material as soon as the water ceases to form beads
  • Apply spray-on impregnation product to the outside of the damp or dry garment (recommended) or add wash-in impregnation product to the washing machine instead of softener
  • Then dry in the tumble drier. The heat will help the impregnation product to condense and will improve its water-repellent effect. Dry at a low temperature and at low speed
  • Reimpregnation is also possible in dry cleaning cycle
