I have tried every product out there and I am a true NIK WAX believer.. I hike for weeks at a time and I'm an avid hunter and out doors man. I don't believe in bad weather just bad gear..It's easy to use. I found for best results I apply it in a bucket and then put in washer on spin cycle then dryer... Read More

    Easy to use, have done many shells
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ryan from Draper, Utah on Wednesday, March 30, 2016
    One bottle of the TX Direct is supposed to be good for three garments. So I washed two tired shell jackets (one Marmot Precip and one Solstice Microshed) and a pair of tired shell pants (Cloudveil) in it. While quite happy with the cleaning ability (both jackets had their fair share of dirt and vegetation stains, all of which went away with the washing), I'm underwhelmed by the water repellent revivability. I haven't tried the Precip jacket yet, but both the Solstice shell and Cloudveil pants no longer beaded any water up on their surface, wetting out almost immediately in even light precipitation. They still managed to keep most water from getting all the way through, but they'd get dense and heavy and breathe poorly very fast. After the washing, the beading and breathability is only slightly improved, and I don't have a lot of confidence that it will last very long. If your waterproof breathable garments are in need of a good cleaning and a minor refreshing, this is a great product. But if you're expecting it to make them close to new again, I think you'll be disappointed.

    I used this product on and OR and Cabella's Jacket after they had both started absorbing water. After the treatment they were repelling water like the day I bought them! Excellent product!

    I used this product to restore the water repellency of my 20 year old Goretex coat. It did just that and doesn't appear to have affected the Goretex breathability. I tested it by standing in the shower for about 5 minutes. Not a great test but it'll do until I get caught in the rain. Easy to use and much nicer than using a spray. The wash ensures full coverage.

    Used along with Tech Wash to clean and waterproof 3 rain jackets. I have only worn one jacket in light rain since but you could see the water beading off.

  • “The product is offered in blue or green color. Does this mean that they are for that color of a garment? Or is this to differentiate product. Can I use these on any color of clothing? ”
    Asked by Streamside Junky from MN on 1/10/2015 11:14:16 PM
    • The blue one (actually it's purple ) is wash - in waterproofing for any type of wet weather fabrics (such as Gortex...)
      Whereas the green one is a wash-in cleaner for down filled items (it helps to restore insulation & water repellency.)

    • Yes. You can use this product on ANY COLOR of clothing. I put many colors in the washer @ the same time with color catchers, being mindful of darks with darks of course. This is the best product I've ever used. And I've tried them all. It is for cleaning water proof type clothing w/o breaking down waterproofing properties. It resets it is the best way I can describe it. Dryer is essential too. Color of cap defines different product. I am very fond of TX Direct. Have also used Polar Wash & Tech Wash. Read the product descriptions carefully. Each has a different application. All are not for waterproofing. Hope that helps!

    • Just labeling, as far as I can figure out. I think TX is blue, Nikwax for washing is green. That's as much as I can recall without running down to my washing machine! I love these products.

  • “Can this be used to re-waterproof the fly for my Kelty tent? If not, what NikWax would you recommend?”
    Asked by Colby from Vermont on 8/13/2013 1:37:17 PM
    • I would not recommend this. You would want Nikwax Tent and gear Solar Proof Spray-on waterproofing and UV blocker for all weatherproof textiles including tents, awnings, marquees, rucksacks, panniers and camera bags. Item #5214U.

  • “Would this product be good for horse turnout blankets?”
    Asked by Nancy from Franklin, TN on 11/6/2012 12:00:00 AM
    • If the turnout blanket is made of a synthetic fabric such as nylon or polyester it could work since this is the fabrics used with most waterproof outerwear.
