easiest waterproofing system
April 08, 2011

First time user, much easier to use than the spray on waterproofing, no odors, good instructions. Used for snowmobile apparel, will have to wait to test until next season but it seemed to bead well.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use

November 12, 2011

This is a very good product, I though washed in direct were very good, It got out stains better than my regular laundry detergent. The water repellent worked very well.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value, Cons: directions are somewhat confusing

It is amazing
April 10, 2009

I was astonished....I had used Camp Dry spray before, but it wears off quick. Nikwas TX Direct was amazing. Water is again beading on the jacket, and it was a very quick process.

Great product, works well, restores waterproofing

After washing my boarding pants with regular detergent, I bought this and it restored the waterproofing and I stayed dry on the next ski trip.

Awesome for your gortex clothes

Used Nikwax for the first time. Jacket and pants very clean. Will get to see how the water proofing works this weekend :-) No directions on bottle for how much to use. Went to website and found out to use 3 cap fulls of each item.

Pros: Ease of use, Great value

Best Care Kit for Hardshell.
August 23, 2009

The "Tech Wash" is suitable for all kinds of outdoor clothes. While the "TX Direct" is one of the best treatments for hardshells. Compared to the "Spray" one, this "Wash-In" is easy to use and treat your clothes more thoroughly. Recommended.

great price and arrived at my door quickly

Tech Wash/TX.Direct Wash-In
October 04, 2010

This product delivers what it says. My shell and ski jackets both came out clean from the wash and the TX.Direct helped to reinvigorate the water proof properties. Well worth the price to get another season or two out of your gear.

Pros: Ease of use, Great value

Awesome Kit!!!
January 19, 2010

I've used the tech wash on all my NorthFace Gore Tex jackets, soft shells and fleece jackets. It leaves the clothes feeling like new and has a very mild fresh scent. I've made the mistake of washing my fleece items with regular tide and fabric softener, and although the clothing where clean and soft, they felt "fluffy". This gives the clothing a soft yet "tough" feel. FYI, the TX Direct wash-in is only for the Gore Tex items.

The best way to re-new your outdoor gear.

Brings back the waterproofing like you just bought the gear
