Washing and caring for your Snapbac gear is easy. Turn gear inside out and machine wash in cold water using a gentle detergent, preferably with like fabrics (i.e. other synthetics) on the delicate cycle. Lay flat or hang to air dry.
DO NOT machine wash the Therapy Pod. To clean the pod, simply wipe clean with a damp cloth.
DO NOT use fabric softener. Fabric softeners create a residue which clogs the fabric and use a dryer sheet or fabric softener, your gear will be fine, simply rewash the garment with a gentle detergent.
You can easily heat the reusable Therapy Pod in the microwave or cool it in the freezer (specific instructions can be found on the back of each Therapy Pod).
Slide the Therapy Pod into any one of the zippered entry points on our performance garments, between the compression base layer and the mesh outer layer, with the MicroGrip face up. Position the Therapy Pod within the garment directly over the muscle, the point of pain or the swollen area for targeted relief. The MicroGrips that line the Therapy Pod will fuse with the mesh to hold the Pod securely in place.
Open the zipper on the garment to access the targeted area for heat or cold therapy treatment. Slide the Therapy Pod between the compression base layer and the mesh outer layer, with the MicroGrip face up. Close zipper for secure positioning.
For Cold Therapy: Place the Therapy Pod flat in the freezer for 2 hours before use. Remove and knead the Pod to evenly distribute temperature. Even frozen, the Therapy Pod will remain flexible. Do not use the Therapy Pod directly on skin straight from the freezer. Always insert it into your Snapbac gear. If the Therapy Pod is too cold and causes discomfort, wait a few minutes before application.
For Heat Therapy: Place a room temperature Therapy Pod flat in microwave (around 800W) and heat for 40 seconds. Let it stand for 30 seconds. If more heat is needed, heat in 10-second intervals. Discontinue heating if Therapy Pod starts to expand like a balloon. This means it’s overheated. Do not use the Therapy Pod directly on skin right after heating, always insert it into Snapbac gear. If the Therapy Pod is too hot and causes discomfort, wait a few minutes before application.
Although you can use multiple Therapy Pods at the same time to treat different areas, we recommend not using any Therapy Pods in one area for longer than 20 minutes at a time. Wait at least 10 minutes before beginning another cold or heat therapy session.
Snapbac tights can be shortened by turning up the cuff of the tight while on the body. Identify the appropriate number (1,2, 3 or 4) and corresponding dotted line. Remove Snapbac tights and cut along the appropriate line, beneath the bartack stitching. View the how to videos for step by step instructions.
