How do I clean Cordura?

All Lynx Defense products are made with at least some Cordura fabric, either in 500 Denier or 1000 Denier Cordura. Cordura is a durable, nylon based fabric that is used for high performance gear and apparel. Products made with cordura are known to last, with easy maintenance and care.

For our products we recommend the following care instructions:

Pistol Bags

Remove everything from your pistol bag, including all guns, ammunition, and range gear/accessories. Use two teaspoons of Dawn hand dish soap (NOT antibacterial) and mix with one quart of water in a spray bottle. Directly spray the soapy water mixture on the inserts and hard bottom of the bag, and wipe clean with a dry cloth.

The shell of the pistol bag can be washed by hand or by washing machine. To ensure your bag lasts as long as possible, we recommend hand washing only. However, if you do machine wash your pistol bag, double check to ensure it is empty and the inserts and hard bottom are completely removed from the bag. Wash with dye free/scent free detergent in cold water on a gentle cycle. Any oil or grease should first be treated with a dry cleaning solvent followed by a spray cleaner or detergent and water. Avoid chlorine or bleach based cleansers. Harsh chemical cleaners and detergents are more likely to damage product fabric.

Rifle Bags

Use two teaspoons of Dawn hand dish soap (NOT antibacterial) and mix with one quart of water in a spray bottle. Directly spray the soapy water mixture on the inserts and hard bottom of the bag, and wipe clean with a dry cloth. Any oil or grease should first be treated with a dry cleaning solvent followed by a spray cleaner or detergent and water. Never machine wash a Lynx Defense Rifle Bag. Avoid chlorine or bleach based cleansers.

Ankle Medical Kits

Use two teaspoons of Dawn hand dish soap (NOT anti-bacterial) and mix with one quart of water. Typically this is best used with a spray bottle and can be sprayed directly on the back of the ankle kit and wipe down thoroughly with a dry cloth. Allow the ankle kit to air dry before wearing. Any oil or grease should first be treated with a dry cleaning solvent followed by a spray cleaner or detergent/water solution. Never machine wash a Lynx Defense Ankle Medical Kit. Avoid chlorine or bleach based cleansers.
