Can this jacket be washed using the delicate cycle in a washing machine?
Assuming that the armor is removed, of course.
The official washing instructions say no, and REV'IT recommends hand wash and hand dry. I've known of others who have ignored this, taking out pads and machine washing on gentle, in a front loading washer, with a bit of Simple Green without apparent consequence. With those modifications making the washing more gentle (front loader, gentle detergent, gentle cycle), it'd probably be okay. Even so, I doubt REV'IT has any motive for advising hand wash other than the protection of your gear, and suspect they do so with some knowledge of long term negative impact on the gear. Good luck.
