Backpack Care guide

Take Care of Your Backpack

Proper care of your backpack, tents, and other outdoor equipment is essential for maintaining long-term functionality. Follow these guidelines to ensure your gear stays in top condition:

Cleaning and Maintenance

  • Keep It Clean: Wash your backpack with a mild soap solution. Avoid using a washing machine, as straps can get caught in the drum and damage both the backpack and the machine.
  • Dry Thoroughly: Ensure your backpack is completely dry before storing it to prevent mold and mildew.

Storage Tips

  • Store Dry and Warm: Always store your backpack in a dry, warm place. Avoid storing it in cold garages or sheds, especially during fall, winter, and spring, as this can increase the risk of mold growth.

By following these simple steps, you can extend the life of your backpack and ensure it remains reliable for all your outdoor adventures. Proper care and maintenance not only preserve the functionality of your gear but also enhance your overall outdoor experience. Keep your equipment in top shape and be ready for any adventure that comes your way!


  • Use PFAS-Free Products: We recommend "Toko Tent & Pack" spray for re-impregnation. This helps repel dirt and moisture, keeping your backpack cleaner for longer.
  • Eco-Friendly Freshness: Use CFC-free Eco Universal Fresh spray to give your gear a pleasant freshness.
