I got my Camo just recently and just wanted to say it looks even better in person then in the little pictures the price and quality are both amazing and I'm thrilled with the product.

My only question/concern is I want to make sure I wash it right I assume hand-wash in a washing machine then manually dry? Also how do you wash the assault vest anything special I need to do?

I'm glad you are satisfied with your order. I'm not sure about my answer to your question, since I don't have a Flora myself. All my other uniforms are hand washed and manually dried and nothing bad has happened to any of them yet, like bleeding and the sort. As for the assault vest, I believe it doesn't require any special care.

I would go with gafrin on this, a great deal of soldiers I've seen in demonstrations wash their gear by hand and then pan them out to dry.

The vest is quite simple though, take a soft wire brush to get rid of any dirt or filth, then if any stains are apparent, use light detergent to absolve then repeat with the brush and rinse with canteen then dry appropriately. That's what I would suggest anyways.

All of my stuff has been machine washed with no problems but if you want to be sure,just hand wash it

Thank god... I got a Shadow BDU, and was reading this and thought "Aw man manual labor?" Then I see your post and I'm like, "Whew good." XD I'm so lazy.
