For over 40 years, Nikwax has made sustainability and performance a priority. From never using PFCs, to carbon balancing its 43 years of operations, to the 2020 milestone of making its bottles from 100% recycled plastic, Nikwax has been a leader in the market. Today, it announces a partnership with another leader, the National Ski Patrol, serving as its official partner for washing and waterproofing products.

“National Ski Patrol is thrilled to partner with Nikwax to offer our patrollers products that will make their gear and clothes last longer,” said Matt Mears, Director of Sales and Partnerships. “Our patrollers are hard on their gear and are out working in all kinds of conditions. Nikwax will help extend the life of their outerwear and protect them from the elements.”

“We’re really excited to be supporting the hard-working men and women of the National Ski Patrol,” said Nikwax NA President, Brian Davidson. “These folks have a demanding job and in turn, demand a lot from their gear—it needs to be durable, weather-worthy, breathable and functional. Nikwax’s washes and waterproofings will ensure their gear performs day in and day out.”
