    DWR Coatings

    Got 3 jackets that need re coating.....what works good and is easy to use?
    Apparently now we cant get good stuff that lasts because of "environment" ?
    The last one I tried was a wash in and made it LESS water proof!

    It must work for a while then if you are not reapplying every few trips.

    I use this on my Sitka and Stoney ck gear.
    Works well. Follow the instruction on the bottle and your all good. Make sure your gear is clean and damp before starting.

    The TX Direct I think it is called. Works well. Couldn't tell you the frequency of use sorry. If I find the jacket slightly heavier/getting damp from rain then I re apply. Not a very good gauge I know but the product works.
