    I simply wash mine in cold water in the washer - after I removing all the pads.
    No issues and have washed 3 times.
    I do not use much soap...very small amount of a light detergent
    I run on the GENTLE cycle and do not wash underwear with gets stuck in Velcro

    Nikwax Techwash in cold water. Either air dry or use the "ultra low" heat setting on the dryer.

    Getting a raincoat type of fabric nice and hot in the dryer will help to ractivate your DWR coating on the outside of your jacket.

    If you shrink your nylon/ cordura jacket in the dryer you are some kind of special. Cotton is what you have to worry about with that. I am 6'5" and can't put any cotton on any kind of heat or it won't fit. Couple times a year I hot spin my ski/ snow/ rain /mc jackets and watch the water roll. ( sometimes you need to reapply said DWR coating as well. )
