Care Instructions

It’s easy to wash! The fabric pockets allow you to remove armor and wash your garment like regular clothing.

Follow the steps below to ensure long lasting wear.

  1. Pull back the lip on the pockets to remove the armor. (Note: failure to remove armor may cause damage to the fabric)
  2. Wash the shells on a low temperature regular (or gentle – preferred) cycle to prevent shrinking or stretching of the fabric. Be sure not to wash garments with other garments which may have Velcro or hooks that could catch the fabric
  3. Dry shells on low temperature or hang dry
  4. When dry, re-insert the armor into their respective pockets and pull the fabric lip of the pocket over the armor. This ensures that the armor stays safely in one place during wear.

With proper care our garments have lasted our customers decades. We hope you have yours for many years to come.

If for any reason you find that you have damaged a fabric shell or need to replace a worn out fabric shell, see our fabric shells page.

    Feeling much warmer on rides nowMy husband bought me the shirt and pants for Christmas and I could not be happier. He was tired of me complaining about how cold I was when we rode. I like that it just adds an extra layer and that it is armored as I have been known to not be good about wearing armor. I'm surprised at how comfy they are too. Thank you also to the girl who helped my husband with sizing for me.

    I would buy this againI have taken 5 or 6 rides in this thermal armored riding shirt. The armor pads are of high quality and have perfect placement - and most importantly are very comfortable, and warm. I usually wear a long sleeve quarter zip on top of it, with a close fitting long sleeve underneath. I also layer on a windbreaker and jacket. I am 5'10", 195lbs, have larger arms, and wear a 42 inch jacket. I bought I size large and it fits a little snug on me. But I decided to keep it because the armor stays in place easily and doesn't move around. It only takes a couple minutes to get geared up with top and bottoms - and I feel much safer. I will buy more for summer wear.

    Warm and comfortableI took my first ride the other day in my Bohn thermal gear. It was just the right amount of warmth and super comfortable. I usually wear the cool version of your gear in the summer and thought I would give this fabric a try. Same good quality as my summer gear. Really happy. Thanks for a great product.
