Hey all, sorry if my first contribution to the forum is a repost, but the search function seems fairly cumbersome here. I have an older (~10 years) Helly Hansen "Helly-Tech" jacket that I'd like to treat for waterproofness again. Any suggestions on which brands work well with HH's material? Thanks all.

I have only used a couple of Nikwax products and they have worked very well for me.  I have never heard a negitive thing about their products other than their cost but I guess you have to pay a high price when you buy the treatments that appear to me to be setting the standards in the industry.  Just make sure the treatment matches the materials of the jacket as I no nothing about "Helly Hansen "Helly-Tech" jacket(s)".
