Firstly, start by removing the inner lining, this is usually zipped in with some press studs holding the arms/legs down.
Remove all the armour from your garment, this is usually in a pocket which is sealed by Velcro.
Fill a tub with warm water and place the garment inside to soak. Once the jacket has been soaked through you can agitate the outer material with a soft brush to get in between the fibres and clean out all the dirt.
You can buy specialist cleaning products which are specifically designed for this use from most motorcycle dealers. If you do choose to use any products, then we would advise to patch test on a hidden area before hand and do so at your own risk. Please ensure you read all the care instructions before applying and if you are unsure then seek advice from the supplier.
The thermal liner you removed at the start can be placed into a washing machine on a standard 30degree wash.
Once satisfied the garment is clean then you can leave it to dry in a well-ventilated area (avoid leaving this in direct sunlight as this may bleach the product).
Finally, once dry you can choose to spray with a fabric freshener to keep it smelling fresh.
