How to clean Cordura?

Let’s face it. Your Cordura bags are gonna get dirty. So you’ll be asking soon how do I clean Cordura?

Cordura fabric is used in most Lynx Defense products. We use either 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 last and are low maintenance.

For our products we recommend the following care instructions:

Pistol Bags & The Concord

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 bag’s inserts and hard bottom and wipe clean with a dry cloth.

The shell of the pistol bag can be washed by hand or by a 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. Remove the inserts and the hard bottom before washing the bag. Wash with dye-free/scent-free detergent in cold water on a gentle cycle.

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 Cases

To best clean your rifle case, 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 bag’s inserts and hard bottom 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.

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 medical kit and wipe down thoroughly with a dry cloth. Allow the ankle kit to air dry before wearing it.

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.
