  • Restores Dwr
  • Simple to use

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Coated Nylons
    • Waterproof Breathables

    Comments about Nikwax TX-Direct Spray-On:

    I like the spray on for tents and large items and the wash in for clothing like rainwear. It makes your gear look and perform like new. Prevents that cold wet layer that gets between the nylon and the coating on older gear.

    I work in the field and travel by motorcycle much of the year. I use quality gear and Nikwax helps to keep the weather on the outside of that gear. It is the most awesome waterproofing I've ever used.

        Easy way to extend the life of rain jackets and items that are worn frequently on a boat. One bottle was enough for 3 items, including the hoods and the inner liners.

          This product was recommended to me and I am recommending it to any who ask. It worked quickly and very efficiently. If the price was lower I would use it on everything. I absolutely loved this product and it saved me much money as items I thought I might have to replace are now like new again.

                      If you have a polyester shell the TX direct spray on is a great choice.

                      A:

                      This would be the right product to use to re-waterproof a Gore Tex jacket. You just have to evenly coat the jacket using the sprayer. This product also comes in a wash- in style which tends to be better because it permeates the entire garment without missing any spots which can sometimes be a problem with the spray.

                      TX-Direct will add water repellency to the shell, but it will not make the sleeping bag water proof.

                    Can I apply Nikwax to "an everyday use" raincoat that's 100% polyester?
                    Would scotchguard be better for this fabric?
