Breathable waterproof garment are most likely to get sweaty and wet inside when used in damp conditions.  If the outer fabric absorbs water, the garment can lose up to 70% of its breathablilty!  To ensure comfort and optimum function, the durable water repellency or DWR must be maintained.

Cleaning properly can be as important as waterproofing.  Conventional detergents leave behind a thin water-absorbent film on materials masking their DWR.  Dirt also works against the fabrics DWR so regular cleaning with quality cleaners like Nikwax Tech Wash will enhance performance.

Nikwax TX Direct can be used two ways, as a wash-in by hand or in a washing machine or applied with a pump spray.  Waterproof items like your shell jacket or pants are best reproofed using Nikwax TX Direct Wash In to allow the application to go right through the garment, treating seams, tapes and cords, as well as the fabric. 


Also the need for tumble drying is removed, this saves energy and protects more vulnerable , older garments from heat.  For garments with wicking or absorbent liners its best to use Nikwax TX Direct Spray-On,  for direct treatment the areas that require it most (elbows, seams on jackets) while not compromising the properties of internal wicking liners.
