How to wash and care for your wool garments
First of all: Once you receive your Ziplongs®, give yourself a chance to zip them on and off a few times at home before you head out. Putting on your Ziplongs® for the first time takes a little finesse. Read more about the color codes under technical details.
Better ventilation (see photo): Ziplongs® gives you the opportunity to not only remove the Ziplongs® completely, but also to ventilate more efficiently. If your pants have zippers, open the zippers of both the pants and the Ziplongs®, and you have will have a fresh breeze directly on your skin. Once it gets cold; zip up!
With the Ziplongs® in 3/4 length , make sure you also wear tall socks. That ensures full comfort and no risk of a cold gap between the Ziplongs® and (short) socks.
On really cold days, Ziplongs® also works great between your long johns and outer shell as a midlayer.
Finally, a word on our philosophy: People often think that being warm is all about having enough clothes on. That’s only half the truth. If your baselayer is wet, you’ll get cold no matter how many layers you put on. That’s why the most important aspect of being warm is to be dry. And that’s what Zipwear™ is all about. Remove your Ziplongs® before you start to sweat, and put it back on when you get cold. Or, have two Ziplongs®. Either way you will be dry and comfortable out in the cold with your Zipwear™.
