Does the job!

Pros

  • No odor
  • Easy to apply

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.

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.
