Nikwax Down Proof adds durable water repellency (DWR) to your down filled garments. Down is an amazing natural fiber for its compressibility, resilience, and warmth. The major drawback of down is it's inability to retain loft and insulate when wet. To add water-repellency to the whole garment--shell, down, and inner lining--use Nikwax Down Proof. **NOTE: If your down garment incorporates a waterproof breathable shell fabric, you should use Nikwax TX-Direct Spray-On (our item no.: NIK0008). 10 fl oz. (300 ml)
