Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells but works This stuff works really well, but the smell is terrible! After using it, I have to air the vests, jackets, or whatever, outdoors or in my garage for a few days. It does aid in waterproofing though pretty well. I just find the smell annoys me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works GREAT on fleece-The water just beads off I've used this before years ago and it was definitely time to refresh the water repellency on a fleece I use for camping trips. The product is amazing and so easy to use. After I get the garments dried thoroughly after the treatment I hold a sleeve under a running water faucet. The water runs right off like it was plastic.

Questions & Answers

Is this product better than TX direct for re-waterproofing softshell jackets? 

Asked by: Mollyoc
Yes, Nikwax formulated their products for the specific category. Softshell Proof will do a better job of restoring the DWR than TX Direct.

Which Nikwax product should I use to restore Patagonia Alpine Guide pants(non Goretex)? The Nikwax Soft shell or Nikwax TX?

Asked by: Stumpy
Nikwax Softshell Proof is a great product to use with your Patagonia Alpine Guide pants.

It seems most soft shell clothing has a fleece lining. If this product is not intended for use on fleece, should we just use the TX Direct instead?

Asked by: izzy atta
To clean your fleece products we would recommend using Nikwax Tech Wash. You could then use Nikwax Polar Proof to add water repellency to your fleece outerwear while maintaining great breathability.
