I have a Lowe outerwear parka that was rapidly becoming ineffective in its water repellancy. I used the tech wash to clean it followed by the Spray in fabric care. I did this on a Sunday, and wore it on Monday as it rained the entire day. The rain repellancy was restored 100% and it was a great purchase.
Works very well

Three applications before using will serve you well....
Fantastic and Easy to Use!

I had the opportunity to use this almost immediately after receiving it to renew the waterproofness of several articles of clothing. Not only that, but it rained like crazy just after the application and drying!!! This stuff worked fantastically!! No wet-through, no leaks, no problem! I would recommend this for renewing the DWR of your outerwear shells and rain gear.
Great waterproofing product, easy to use.

Easy to apply. Does a great job of restoring waterproof capabilities to jackets and pants made of Gore-Tex products.

The product went on easy and now I feel I will get a longer life out of my gear.
This does exactly as Nikwax advertises.

This does exactly as Nikwax advertises. Don't waste your time and money buying and applying any other waterproofing product.

I prefer spray-on waterproofing like this nikwax product which allow targeted waterproofing to the overall wash-in varieties. TX Direct works well, but is most effective if you clean the fabric ahead of time with a specialized cleaner like you would get from nikwax or granger. Definitely avoid fabric softener before applying.
You wouldn't expect it to work as well as it does

I bought this to waterproof some polyester pants that were not waterproof originally. After spraying on and air drying, the pants repel water incredibly well. I was recently caught out in a notoriously fierce Washington DC spring rainstorm and while everyone else was dripping wet I stayed completely dry without needing an umbrella. I'll definitely be purchasing more for my other outerwear.

Beads water like new and still breathable. Works very well.

Used on my rain parka and as a supplement to the rug proof on a horse rug along the back. Very pleased with the results.

Used this on my snowboarding pants which started soaking up moisture instead of beading. I thought I'd have to get a new pair, but Nikwax saved the day. Water started beading up again... fantastic stuff.

Puts the R back in the DWR on breathable parkas and hats. Love it. It's easy to use and works really well. Need to replenish the repellency of your breathable outer wear? Go for this product by Nikwax--it's super!

this is a good product, but if you live in a ski town, and ride two to four days a week, it wore out on me by halfway through february and I had to get some more waterproofing spray. works well thoug up until then, so if you only ski 30 days a year, then this is great for a year.

This turned out to be the perfect solution for my old, heavily-used rain jacket. It is extremely easy to use, and most of all an effective way to restore waterproof-ness~ I'd highly recomment this product for anyone. Money well-spent!Pros: Performance, Ease of use

Just returned from a canoe trip in the Boundary Waters. I treated our rain gear and tents with this and TX.Direct Wash-In before the trip, and our gear kept us cozy and dry. Even old and well-worn rain coats resisted water in heavy downpours.
