How to wash a backpack?
Stains and dirt are best removed using a damp sponge and a mild detergent. If the backpack is heavily soiled, it can be washed under the shower or in the bathtub. Never wash the backpack or the raincover in a washing machine or dryclean! To dry the pack, hang it in a well ventilated place.
Please do not remove the metal frame from any of our backpacks.

- You do not have to wait until the backpack is dry. Spray the Nikwax product evenly on the outside of the backpack.

- Dry the backpack completely in the air once. Tip: Hang it upside down. This will allow water to run out of the compartments.
