Outdoor gear, from tents to clothing can be expensive, but the right items will last for a long time especially if you look after them properly.

That means that not only should you ensure that items are completely dry before you put them away but that from time to time you should use a product that will help to maintain the integrity of their water repellent features.

Nikwax is a very well-respected brand that can be used to assist with this.

It not only helps to maintain water repellence but also protects against the degradation of UV.

How to Use

Apply Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof® by hand…

For best results always clean item(s) first. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing.

  1. Protect working surface and lay clean wet item flat, or erect tent and wet.
  2. Spray evenly to outside of fabric. Avoid rucksack straps.
  3. Wait for 2 minutes. Remove any surplus product with a damp cloth.
  4. Check carefully to ensure no areas have been missed.

Use approximately 50ml of product per 1m2 of fabric.

The coverage is approximate and depends on the condition of the fabric being treated.

To maintain waterproofing and UV protection always clean with Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarWash®. Do not use conventional detergents.

Use Nikwax Cotton Proof to waterproof cotton, polycotton and canvas.

Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof® treated equipment needs no heat to develop Durable Water Repellency (DWR)…

DWR and ultraviolet (UV) protection will develop once the fabric is dry. Allow item(s) to dry fully before packing away.
