What brand? I've got a Redhead and a Drake, one for mild weather and one for colder weather. Both have been fine. I've never washed them. I'm not even sure if that's recommended for either of mine. I just ripped the tags off and went hunting. I try to remember to tuck them into my waders when I'm wading out, though.
I just turned it on . I was looking bird dogs in the butt this morning.
