What payment methods does CRF accept?

How do I determine sizing?

On every garment page you'll find a Fit & Sizing tab which includes a size chart and measurement information regarding that specific garment. 

What are the care instructions?

All of our products are 100% machine washable. Care instructions (which are found on the reverse side of the Copper River Fleece sewn-in label on our garments) are:

  • Luke warm or cold water wash on gentle cycle, using powder laundry soap
  • Hang to dry

Before washing a CRF vest or jacket, we recommend you first zip it up and turn it inside out, to help preserve its appearance. Do not dry-clean as this can damage the fabric. 

Do you have a warranty?

Our absolute commitment to quality is a Copper River Fleece tradition! We stand behind our workmanship, and we use only the very best quality materials & zippers in the production of our garments and accessories. We warranty for 1 year from purchase date that our products are free from defects in materials and workmanship, and we will promptly repair or replace any defective product free of charge. We do not warranty our products against damage due to normal wear and tear, alterations or modifications, improper use, misuse, negligence, or improper maintenance.

How do I replenish the water-repellancy?

We make our softshell and windblock fleece garments using fabrics treated with a Durable Water-Repellant finish (DWR). The DWR finish helps repel light rain & snow from the outer fabric layer, which in turn allows the breathable laminated membrane to function optimally. This water-repellant finish can begin to wash off over time with repeated washings. Whenever you begin to notice that your CRF garment is no longer shedding water like it once did, you can revive the water-repellancy with a wash-in surface treatment application. Although we don't endorse any particular product, we've had many customers tell us that Nikwax "Tech Wash and Softshell Proof" products work very well.

What if I'd like optional customizing added to a CRF garment I already own?

For any CRF garment style on which we offer optional customizing options (ie. addition of hood, hood trim, zipper trim, etc), we can add these optional features to your CRF garment at any time. Make sure to wash your garment before shipping to us. Click here to download and print our Customizing Form to include with your garment. Please allow 2 weeks for processing. 

Where is Copper River Fleece made?

All Copper River Fleece garments and accessories are designed exclusively by our staff, and sewn in the USA. During our first 10 years in business, we sourced all of our sewing needs from the local Cordova community. As business grew and demand for our products increased, our sewing needs began to exceed what we could keep up with in Cordova. In order to meet this demand while keeping prices affordable, we began supplementing our sewing needs with seamstresses in Idaho and Washington state. 

Do you sell your trim?

Most of our trims are our artist-commissioned copyrighted designs, which we make available exclusively on Copper River Fleece garments and accessories. Because our trims are an essential signature of our brand, we don't sell them separately.
