I have question is it Ok to wash Spyder GTX jacket and pants with this product, it has detergent and after that you can apply DRW protection:

Sypder recommend this company , but want to see if anyone used this on Spyder.
I have 2 jackets one is Spyder Leader jacket with primaloft insulation and other is Titan 2018 with 3M insulation. Pants are last year model so I believe also has primaloft insulation.

Also have Leather/Cloth Prime Spyder gloves and was wondering is it Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather Ok to use on it to protect them?

Thank you for any input .

GTX is GTX no matter the brand. Yes, you can wash it with Nikwax although I prefer Granger products.
There are instructional vids by Gore how to wash GTX, look them up.
To re-activate the membrane you will need to tumble dry the jacket after washing it.

You can wash membranes with powder detergents as well (not liquid) and most important-never use softeners.

Sure, use the Nikwax on the leather gloves. Cleaning first is best. They do make a cleaner.

Anyone has susses with removing stain for GTX jacket and pants ,
I have something on my Jacket and pants , I did not go and seat anywhere but ski lift , It is some black Black lines .

I found this on Pantagonia website as Spyder do not have anything about stains, and was wondreing is it Ok to use and rub in dishwashing detergent or that to safe cleaning fluid to try remove stain:

To get grease out of a technical jacket, dampen the stain and rub in dishwashing detergent. Then wash the jacket in warm water with plenty of mild powder laundry soap. If the stain persists, sponge it with a safe cleaning fluid (Renuzit® or Carbona®) or mineral spirits; you can find both at your local grocery store.
