How often do you wash your outer gear?

I dont want to wash them too much for excess wear and tear. Just wondering on the norm how often are you guys washing your gear?

I usually wash them every two weeks or so. I shred about 1-2 a week. Unless I get them dirty in the lot. Hopefully that doesnt wear out the waterproofness of them too quick. What about you and what do you think the companies suggest?

Never...so I'm due. I usually wear them out before I wash them. I like my current jacket though so I'll prob do it this week...then I'll be good for the season.

Wash at the beginning of a season, then again when it just begins to get a different smell to it (nothing nasty). Then wash it on cold with just a tiny amount of soap. Air dry is preferable if you can do it.

I do mine like 2-3 times a season, mostly when it gets a little game-y

I wash my pants about every 5-7 days of riding, my jacket probably once or twice a season, or when it smells like it needs a wash (like the multisample said, nothing nasty) My beanies, i wash after every weekend of riding.

Just saying: I got yellow/green coloured pants this season...they have been a pain in the ass, you only need to look at dirt and they are filthy.

That depends on your outerwear. I have all burton AK goretex stuff. They say to wash it regularly as it keeps the goretex breathing properly.

But I think that gore is the only brand that recommends regular washing and drying of their garments. I know when my stuff comes out of the drier it sheds water like nobodys business.

14/15 days
