Why breathability depends upon water repellency…

 

Breathable waterproof garments are most likely to get sweaty and wet inside when used in damp or wet conditions. If the outer fabric absorbs water, the garment can lose up to 70% of its breathability. Therefore, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) on the outer fabric of your jacket must be maintained to ensure comfort. It will eventually wear off and need to be renewed with Nikwax TX.Direct®.

 

Waterproof clothing needs to be breathable…

 

When we work hard, we sweat. The evaporation of sweat cools us down and keeps us comfortable. But, when it rains we want to avoid getting wet, so we put on waterproof outerwear to keep us dry. The waterproof fabric must allow moisture vapour to pass through it, or 'breathe'; otherwise our sweat cannot evaporate, causing us to overheat and get wet from condensation. Additionally, if the outer fabric of your garment absorbs water and ‘wets out’ its breathability will be reduced, causing you to feel clammy and wet.

 

Apply Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On by hand…

 

For best results remove all non-washable parts and always clean item(s) first with Nikwax Tech Wash®. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing.

 

Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions.

 

  • Protect working surface and lay clean wet fastened garment flat.
  • Hold bottle 15 cm/6 inches away from garment.
  • Apply evenly to outside of fabric.
  • Wait for 2 minutes. Remove any surplus product with a damp cloth.
  • Check carefully to ensure no areas have been missed.
