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. http://www.rei.com/product/724687/nikwax-tech-wash-10-oz You could then use Nikwax Polar Proof to add water repellency to your fleece outerwear while maintaining great breathability. http://www.rei.com/product/866745/nikwax-polar-proof-concentrate
