re-waterproofing cycling jackets

by stuke   August 10, 2010  

I've got Altura Nevis and Altura Night Vision Evo waterproof jackets which both need reproofing before the winter, is there any product on t'internet or high street that works better than all the rest

I always use Nikwax TX direct wash in, it's really good, especially if you tumble dry the jacket afterwards. Granger's do a wash in one too i think

Second Nikwax wash in, its also worth using their tech wash prior to reproofing to remove dirt and any detergent build up if you have chucked it in the washing machine a couple of times.

You can normally get twin packs on ebay at a good price.

Nikwax is what Endura told me to use.

I like my bike but it needs a hidden 25cc motor Smile
