NAARS review of Nikwax waterproofer


Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In is the market leader. It is easy and quick to apply in a washing machine and its highly Durable Water Repellency (DWR) develops on air drying. The washing machine application ensures that the treatment goes right through the garment, treating seams, tapes and cords, as well as the fabric. Also, as the need for tumble drying is removed, this saves energy and protects more vulnerable, older, garments from heat. Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In has been specifically designed and optimized for breathable waterproof garments; it leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibers allowing moisture vapor to pass through, maintaining breathability.

 This product is a life saver for adventure racers in the North American Adventure Racing Series (NAARS). We’re out there in nature unsupported racing through whatever Mother Nature throws at us. Being in soaked clothes is miserable hurts our ability to perform at our best. With Nikwax, we help eliminate the weather’s chances of getting to us by waterproofing our gear. Having dry, warm gear will get us through a race that much faster and every racer should consider this product.
