Use Nikwax to stay dry, warm and comfortable in wet weather.  Nikwax cleans, re-proofs and maintains breathability of all outdoor clothing & footwear.

  • Treating your sports gear and footwear with Nikwax will make them repel water when it rains. You stay dry!
  • Your gear will remain lightweight because it won’t absorb water and become heavy. You can move freely!
  • Your gear remains breathable so moisture does not build up on the inside of the jacket making you feel clammy and cold. You enjoy your sports more!
  • Improve your performance and your sports. Use Nikwax to waterproof and maintain all sports gear so you stay dry, warm and comfortable in wet weather.
  • The Nikwax two-stage treatment is the cleaning and re-proofing sequence which will restore the original performance of manufacturer’s clothing, footwear or equipment.
    Whether it’s clothing, footwear or equipment, the first stage of the Nikwax process must always be to clean.

    This removes contaminants, dirt and everyday grime that masks the water-repellent coatings on waterproof items. All water repellent finishes work at their best if the garments are kept clean. Nikwax wash-in cleaners for clothing and equipment will safely remove any detergent residues ingrained in the fabric that would encourage wetting-out, ie. where water isn’t repelled from the fabric but absorbed into the fibres.  Regular cleaning prevents damage.

    Whether it’s clothing, footwear or equipment, the second stage of the process must always be to waterproof.
    Using any one of our waterproofing products will ensure a durable, long-lasting effect against rain, keeping you, your feet or your equipment dry in wet weather.  Using Nikwax will maintain the breathable performance of gear, preventing moisture build-up on the inside of gear allowing it to be pushed from the inside out, keeping your body at the right temperature. At the same time Nikwax repels rain from the outer surface, keeping you dry from both directions.
