Over the past couple of years, Athos gear has evolved and adapted to better suit the needs of our users. One example of this is the way we care for our garments.

To date, we've created two versions of Athos gear, each a little better than the last, and easier to care for.

1.0:

Our original Shirts, Shorts, and Capris should be hand-washed only in cool water, with a gentle cleaner like Woolite, or even baby shampoo. You'll also want to make sure to remove the Core before washing. The Core is totally sweat proof, but should not be submerged.

Care Instructions:

  1. Remove Core.
  2. Hand wash with gentle cleaner (e.g. Woolite).
  3. Pat dry with a towel (do not wring).
  4. Air dry overnight.

While air drying is ideal, you can also place garments in the dryer in a fine-mesh garment bag on a low heat setting for 45 minutes. Please be advised that we do not recommend high heat as it may damage the sensors and the inlay.

**If you're not sure which version you have, simply check the label printed in the garment for care instructions for that item.

2.0:

We're happy to announce that for the first time in Athos history, our newest garments are machine washable! (Shorts and Leggings only.)

All shorts and leggings purchased after October 24th, 2016 are version 2.0.

To care for them, simply toss them in a washing machine with cold water and a gentle detergent like Woolite. You may also dry the garments in the dryer on low-heat.

When both washing and drying in a machine, please remember to use a fine-mesh laundry bag to keep dust and lint away from the sensors. No need to purchase your own bag; we'll include one with your order free of charge!

Care Instructions:

  1. Remove Core.
  2. Place garments in individual fine-mesh laundry bags.
  3. Machine wash in cool water with a gentle cleanser.
  4. Hang to dry or place in dryer (in a fine-mesh laundry bag) on low-heat for 45 minutes.

**If you're not sure which version you have, simply check the label printed in the garment for care instructions for that item.

Following these care instructions will help keep your garments in great shape. If you have any questions about care instructions, or if you're not sure which version you have, please contact our Support Team.
