We suggest Revivex for our gear also. Works real well.

I just bought a klim jacket this year and was wondering if I can fold up and store in a suitcase for the off season. Or if it is recommended to leave it on a hanger for off season storage to protect the goretex membranes etc. Thanks in advance...

As long as your gear is fully dried you can store it anywhere as long as it is in a dry area. After washing my gear it goes back into my Klim team gear bag until the season starts up again. In the off season it is also a good idea to initiate any warranty issues you might need taken care of.

For offseason storage I clean them and then hang them once dry in a closet. The pants/bibs/glove/boots are all cleaned and stored in a plastic storage bin and I've never had an issue yet. I don't think you can go wrong either way, but if you were to keep them in a basement or attic then I'd recommend covering them with a garment or trash bag to keep the dust from accumulating on them. Just keep them clean and dry.

Glad I came upon this thread. My bibs are only a year old and they are starting to get wet ass. Hopefully I can wash them with that stuff and get it back to waterproof. I was using revivex but also using detergent so maybe that was my issue

Use the products listed in culater's first post and you'll be good to go. Just be sure to do a double rinse when washing to get any residual detergent out. You can get a package deal from EMS on both products.

Go to the website below and fill out the warranty. You need pictures of the front of the bibs and the back. Explain the problem. Scan your invoice (I have heard the invoice isn't necessary but it is nice include). If warranted, they will send a Case# and instructions. The spray on works for awhile but won't keep you dry like a new pair will. Good luck.
