+dry cleaning/petrol wash for down/synthetic goodies (those are made from feather, mainly from goose down or other feathers or synthetic materials. like sleeping bag, jacket etc). general wash for others.
these are extremely sturdy and durable. for trekkers these will easily last for 7/8/10 years (shoe may be an exception). for Army those should last at least for 5yrs (trying to analyse from their build quality). but I think Army issues new items every year for troops in altitude (though I'm not sure).
*please note, synthetic is water resistant. so can be washed normally. but I prefer to dry clean those.
