Down Wash

rated 4 of 5 stars This is an effective product for cleaning and restoring loft to down garments and sleeping bags/quilts. It works for both hand and machine washing. The price for a bottle is steep, but I have found it to be pretty concentrated, with good results using less product than is prescribed. Background: Nikwax Down Wash Direct is a specialty detergent for washing high-quality down products like jackets (puffies) and sleeping bags/quilts.

Tent & Gear SolarProof

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Just a scam, IMHO. Applied per instructions to a 3-person tent fly with zero effect. Water immediately passes through the fly. It's a waste of money on a lame claim from this company. I'm done buying any Nikwax products. I've moved to McNett's Gear Aid line and they are the shizzzz!  Full review

Down Wash

rated 3 of 5 stars It works to clean down bags and garments safely, but is more costly than Gear Aid Revivex. Tried it and find it's effective to clean, but at three to four times the cost of Gear Aid ReviveX Pro Cleaner. Full review

Nubuck & Suede Proof

rated 0.5 of 5 stars The only thing as effective as Nixwax Suede is doing absolutely nothing. Applied the first time, no effect. Water absorbed as usual.  Applied the second time, no effect. Water absorbed as usual.  This product has ZERO waterproofing qualities.  Full review

Conditioner for Leather

NEVER USE ON SUEDE!!! My friend tried to weather protect my brand new 100$ Uggs and completely ruined them. They are now blotchy and went from a light brown to a dark brown, almost black. Very very very very upset. In short, read the directions and never use this stuff on suede or you'll ruin anything it touches!! My experience was poor, however it was used incorrectly. Just want to let people know if anyone does try to use it on suede. Full review
