All Nikwax treatments are easy-to-use, highly effective and long-lasting. The treatments contain elastic water-repellent polymers that bond to fabric fibres, leaving the spaces between open and breathable. They stretch and move with the fabric so they work better and last longer. Nikwax will not change the look or feel of the fabric. The treatments are water-based, environmentally safe and non-flammable. Ideal for all types of equipment and accessories.

Nikwax non-detergent soaps, Tech Wash & Down Wash Direct, clean without harming water-repellency and help to restore the bag's loft. Nikwax waterproofing treatments are made from a breathable elastic water-repellent elastomer called TX.10 that bonds to the fibres of the fabric and fill material.

“We will often double the lifespan of our tents using the wash and proofer. The Sam Sykes and MAMMUT Mountain School UK clothing and equipment is always washed and proofed with Nikwax products. Without the capability of Nikwax products, we could not operate at our best - especially when it really counts! All professional operators in the Outdoor Industry will wash and proof their clothing and equipment regularly. The benefits range from product longevity, protection, sustainability and aesthetics. In short, if you’re not doing this, it’s time you started. Nikwax gets 10/10 from me!”Sam Sykes
