Interesting thought, Joe.  It does seem to maybe not have the "plastic sheen" it had when new...maybe the washing scuffs up the material a bit.  Another interesting thing for my jacket is that I've never put beeswax on the zippers and they were always a little stubborn at times.  After washing it the zippers seem much smoother....  Smiley
