Yea, but if it's saturated you want to get the water out first, it will take forever in the dryer if you don't

We have a dehumidifier, so i just put my leather gloves in front of the discharge air, which is very dry. They went front dripping wet to bone dry in about 3hrs. I would've done the same if I had a wet leather jacket.

Since I had the mesh jacket, I just removed all the armor pieces and threw it in the washer along with my other wet clothes. It doesn't hurt to wash it anyway. Right out of the washer, mesh jackets air dry pretty fast just on cloth hanger. Mine were already dry this morning.

Yup. I had 25 miles. Not fun. Was hard to see through the misty stuff, too.
