How do I clean/wash the jacket?
This may sound like a very silly question the more seasoned rider. But, I was wondering how do I clean/wash this jacket. I bought it while back and have been loving it. But the warm weather riding has now created a need for me to wash it. But the back pad is not removable. And the leather bits mean I can't just wash it like my icon mesh jacket. Any advice for me?

The cleaning of the Reactor 3.0 jacket can be a bit tricky. We don’t suggest the jacket is soaked for a long period of time because of the leather. Please see the cleaning instructions we suggest for our textile products below. The back pad is removable. There is an opening under the pocket for the pad. Lift the bottom of the pad and there should be an opening where the back pad can be removed. To make it easier for removal try to roll the pad into itself (like a taco), pull the bottom of the pocket you’re able to pull the pad out. 1)Remove all body armor prior to washing garment. 2)Wash garment by hand in cold water with a mild non abrasive liquid laundry detergent (Woolite or even baby shampoo). 3)If needed gently scrub heavily soiled area(s). 4)Thoroughly rinse garment in cold water. 5)Hang garment to air dry. 6)Once garment is completely dry, replace armor in appropriate pockets.
