A relatively simple question, I hope. I have some Olympia Motosport gear (AST jacket and Ranger 2 pants) that says to handwash only and let drip dry. I also have a Kenmore Series 80 washer that has a "handwash" option. My gear is pretty dirty and I don't really have the space to handwash it myself. Has anyone ran into problems by machine washing theirs, albiet with the handwash option?

I've done it a couple of times with a "handwash only" Fieldsheer mesh jacket. One of the pocket zippers has gone bad, but I don't think it had anything to do with machine washing...seems to be a common problem with Fieldsheer stuff, crappy zippers. Fabric itself is fine. Don't forget to remove the armor first.

I've thrown my Olympia Airglide jacket in the washer and dryer. I used the delicate cycle on the washer and low heat on the dryer. The jacket came out fine.

Well, washed with the "handwash" option and allowed to drip-dry. No damage and it's nice to have clean gear again.

My Phantom got washed in the tub this winter. Didn't realize how dirty it was until I looked at the water.
