    REI Members get back an estimated $ 2.08 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Nikwax Hard-shell Outerwear Care Kit is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't buy a new jacket In short: It will revive your rain jacket. The longer: Alas, my six year-old REI elements rain jacket (I think it's a hard shell) had failed. Walks home from the bus in a steady rain (15-20 min) had me soaked. Instead of buying a new jacket, I dropped the (by comparison) paltry $ for this treatment, followed the directions and now water beads up on my jacket just like when it was new. 20 minutes standing in a downpour at an unsheltered bus stop this morning waiting for the reliably late route 48, I was completely dry underneath. To use: I washed this and another jacket with the Tech Wash (3 capfuls in warm water, low water level, extra rinse cycle), immediately followed with the Tx.Direct (the whole bottle, warm water, low setting). Let it dry overnight on a rack. Done. Both, but the Tech Wash especially left the inside of the washer a bit smelly with some residue, so I ran it again empty with just some laundry detergent. Seemed to clean it right out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Product used when washing waterproof jackets or pants. Does a really good job keeping the texture in the clothes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these products Easy to use, jacket comes clean and stays waterproof...Also used the cotton version for an old jacket that works great from the same company.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Product was easy to use, assuming that you have a decent washer and dryer. I don't know what the environmental impact is from discharging the waste material to the wastewater treatment system or receiving waters. I applied it to rain jacket and rain pants, and shortly after experienced 4 days of rain on the Wonderland Trail around Mt Rainier, without and penetration of moisture.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked well. The stuff worked. I'm not fully convinced that you have to use their cleaner, but I did it any way just to be safe. Not worth ruining expensive gear. I've used my clothing several times since I washed it in NikWax and it definitely repels the water.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what it says. I was going to use this product on my Aerostich Roadcrafter two piece suit, but before I could I hit a deer and was cut out of my suit. I have used this product in the past and it does waterproof your clothes. This was a repeat purchase because I was so pleased with the product in the past. I plan to use it on my new suit as well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive but seems worth it would like it to be less expensive---wonder if mild detergent works?
