Have two jackets that had lost their water repelling ability because I had run them through the clothes drier. Thought for sure that I would have to buy new ones until I saw the Nikwax Waterproofing on Sierra Trading Post. Washed the two jackets as described in the directions and it's like they are back to new. Saved me from buying new ones. Excellent product!

Nikwax products are something I have used for decades and always been satisfied with. When the DWR (I guess the D there is a little suspect) started to fail on my soft shell I bought this to help bring it back and it works brilliantly. The thing to remember is that since the original DWR and Nikwax are both coatings that can and do wear off you will need to retreat at some point in the future and it is not permanent any more than the original treatment. I have found the Nikwax products to be the best of the options available having used a number of others I will stick with Nikwax for the foreseeable future.

My Grunden's softshell has never, NEVER felt this clean, slick and light. It looks, smells, feels and repels water like it's absolutely brand new. Couldn't be happier with Nikwax's products.
This comes in a 10 oz. bottle. They recommend you use the whole bottle for a small load size in a top loading washing machine, but only a couple ounces for hand washing.
I washed my Grunden's softshell and a Marmot shell with Tech Wash then followed up with this stuff on the softshell. Used 2-3 oz of the softshell proof on a single garment in a top loading washer set on small load size and warm water. Worked great
