Nikwax TX.Direct Spray-On
Source: bought it new
Does the job!
- No odor
- Easy to apply
I bought a North Face jacket that was not waterproofed and looked into waterproofing agents and everyone recommended Nikwax. And it works!
The application is pretty easy and there is no residual odor after the application. I have been through several rainstorms and the jacket and the Nikwax holds up.
