Designed to care for the water repellency of your garment. Good for any products that have a Durable Water Repellent finish from softshells, rucksacks to waterproofs. Easy to use.

It is recommended you wash and treat your waterproofs as regularly as 10 days of total use. After the DWR has dried, a short round in the dryer on very low heat helps cure the DWR and restore its repellency. This protective spray from Nikwax is easy to use and means you can have something available to keep your gear in waterproof condition.

DWR – All the waterproofing technology amounts to nothing without the most important part of the equation: Durable Water Repellent (DWR). DWR is a chemical coating that is treated to the face fabric (the exterior layer) in order to make it completely hydrophobic. Without DWR, the exterior fabric can get “wetted out” and suffer from reduced breathability or even cause a reverse effect in that moisture is “sucked in” to the fabric, causing the garment to get completely soaked inside and out.

DWR is a chemical treatment (usually silicon-based) that is applied on the fabric in the factory, but it wears off over time. The main reason for DWR wear is abrasion, so areas that suffer in particular are where straps, harnesses, gaiters and other bits of gear create friction on the fabric. In order to keep the fabric from wetting out, it is important to re-apply the DWR on a regular basis, along with giving the garment a good clean.

For best results remove all non-washable parts and always clean item(s) first with Nikwax Tech Wash®. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing.

  1. Protect working surface and lay clean wet fastened garment flat.
  2. Hold bottle 15 cm/6 inches away from the garment.
  3. Apply evenly to outside of the fabric.
  4. Wait for 2 minutes. Remove any surplus product with a damp cloth.
  5. Check carefully to ensure no areas have been missed.
  6. After several minutes check for and remove any surplus product with a damp cloth.
