@CC360 great question! We would advise washing those 2 types of jackets separately because the detergents we recommend are different (and therefore do different things).
For your rain jacket, we recommend using the Nikwax Tech Wash first to remove all dirt, sweat, and build-up from the jacket; we then recommend using the Nikwax Tx Direct (either wash-in or spray-on) to re-invigorate the DWR on the outside of the jacket.
For your down puffy, we recommend using the Nikwax Down Wash Direct to clean the jacket, as it is specifically designed to clean feathers that require loft to insulate.
We hope this helps!
At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
