Hello all! Hope everyone is enjoying their winter season so far!

I have a North Face Summit Series Gore-tex XCR jacket and TNF HyVent pants--BOTH of which i Love! I am curious as to how to properly maintain them.

I bought some spray on NikWax from REI last year and used it but I wonder if that can work for my HyVent pants when it says "recommended for gore-tex"? Also is the washable or dryer applied waterproofing better than the spray on?Also what is the proper maintenance for my HyVent pants if any?

I may sound like a Newb, but i just want some proper maintenence advice without all the outdoor flack from someone at REI or EMS! thanks!
