Can someone help me!! (put my session denims in the dryer)

as the title says, i bought a pair of sessions denim ridge style pants, they were amazing, but the last time that i was on the mountain they were soaked at the end of the day. when i took them off i notice that there is a huge stamp on the inside that say not to put them in the dryer, they have to lay flat!

when i went home i was talking to the girlfriend about this and found out that they have gone in the dryer with everything else! EVERYTIME.

has anyone else had this issue and is there any kind of fix? or are they pretty much trash now??

you're not recommended to put these stuff in the dryer because they wash away the water resistant coating. but they're not gonna turn into complete trash either unless the quality of your gear aren't that great in the first place.

i've had a few 10,000 mm gear that i frequently put in the dryer (because i didn't know before either) but they still held up well in most conditions (even in rain from time to time).

what you can do to make it better, though, is to visit board shops and buy some water resistant spray. spray your gear and try not to wash them as much. when you have to wash because they have dirt and stains on them, wash them with cold water. then spray again.

I don't have any experience with revive-x. I have used other brands with lots of success. Some spray on, some you wash in, some are Gore-Tex specific. Just follow the directions on whatever brand you buy and it should be better then wet pants. Don't wash your "tech" gear until someone else tells you they stink! Washing machines are tough on gear and I never use the dryer.

I was turned onto this product by one of my mtn. biking buddies. Been using it the last two years on gear (bike/snowboard) and seems to work great.

I have used other waterproofing stuff before as well. Both in wash and spray on. It was not a permanent fix, seemed to wear off after maybe a month of heavy use. I feel like combining the wash stuff with spray on would be the best solution.

I've used Granger's Wash-in Waterproofing, comes in liquid form. You wash your gear in it then tumble dry. It turned a useless pair of dakine gloves into something like waterproof in one go for me.
