The care label on my down vest says to refer to your website for restoring the DWR finish and caring for down garments after washing - I can't find anything at all on your website - what is the answer please

Asked by: Gill L
If you pop into our Help Centre, you will find all the information you need from washing a down jacket to re-water proofing your rain jacket. Under Product Information there is a 'product care' category, this is where you can find all the links to videos and articles about looking after your gear. I hope this helps!

Does this fit the same size as the Epiq Women's 600 Fill Hooded Down Jacket. I have size 8 in that jacket which fits me well. As this is a thin jacket would you recommend size 6 or the same size for me?

Asked by: Jaya123
I would stick to the size 8 if this fits you well. The thickness of a jacket is taken into account when these are designed.
