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.

Quick and easy to apply to outer surfaces; can be used anywhere, anytime, on wet and dry fabrics.

Gore-Tex, HyVent, eVent, and any other synthetic fiber garment with a durable water repellent (DWR) or polyurethane (PU) coating will eventually allow moisture to seep through the outer fabric. The Nikwax TX Direct Spray-On is a quick and easy way to replenish that waterproof barrier before your next outing. Simply spray on, wipe off any excess, and allow to dry to reinstate that barrier.
