Regarding regular washing of gore tex. Any pointers? Certain temperature, with washing powder?

40 deg pure soap flakes, or if you have money burning a hole in your pocket specalist wash for breathable fabrics eg nikwax/grangers. if you go for the soapflakes option disolve in water first before putting in machine. dont use conventional washing powder or liquid as it will strip the water replency, water wont bead and the fabric wont be able to breath properly.
tumble dry helps too.
i'm not perfect, but I shoot FT, reality is this is pretty much the same thing!
