Care

Silk Weight

Warm wash, mild detergent. Separate dark colours for the first wash. Do not bleach, dry clean or iron. Do not use fabric softener. Fabric will be touch dry at end of washing cycle. Any residual dampness will air dry. May be tumble dried, cool setting only, for a very short time. Fabric softeners reduce the moisture transfer and breathability properties of the fleece by coating the polyester fibres with a lubricant.They should be totally avoided.

These tops are tougher than they look
I have a few of these tops and use them for cycling. They're cool to wear (and I wear them baggy for extra ventilation), keep the sun off me and, importantly for cycle touring, they dry real fast. Recently I also discovered the fabric is as tough as old goats' knees. I came off my bike, hard enough to crack my helmet, acquire major bruising, and to remove various bits of skin as I hit the tarmac. The ESS top did not rip or mark, no damage, nothing. Unbelievable. I was so impressed I bought an extra one, just in case ESS ever decide to stop making them. Review by Ian / (Posted on 8/01/2015)
The Zip Polo is like like a second skin.
I had the Zip Polo next to my skin 24/7 for over a week on a long climb: I just put it on and forgot about it. It kept me comfortable, warm and dry and being close-fitting, trapped a layer of warm air. It was also really effective as a sun-block for glacier travel and under hot conditions stayed cool, even with the long sleeves.
