Waterproofers and Cleaners   

Which one do you need? 

It can be confusing to navigate the maze of different proofings, cleaners and treatments available for your gear. Here is a comparative guide to help you select the right treatment for the job.

 
Looking to reproof your Gore-Tex or Hydronaute jacket? This is the one you need! The heat-cure waterproofer gives the best, most durable DWR treatment available. The only catch is, you need to tumble dry or iron your jacket after treatment.
 
Make sure you wash your items with Storm Wash In Cleaner before proofing them. 
     
 
Looking to reproof your Gore-Tex or Hydronaute jacket, but don't have a tumble drier? This one will do the trick!
 
The proofing is not quite as good as the Heat Cure Waterproofer, but you avoid the need to tumble dry or iron your garment.
 
Make sure you wash your items with Storm Wash In Cleaner before proofing them.
   
 
     
 
Ideal for waterproofing your softshell, polarfleece, hiking pants, hat or other garments.
 
We don't recommend the wash-in waterproofer for waterproof/breathable garments (ie Gore-Tex or Hydronaute) as it coats the inside as well as the outside of the fabric. This can interfere with the breathability of these fabrics.
 
For best results, wash your items with Storm Wash In Cleaner first.
   
 
     
 
 
For waxed cotton garments. Oilskin japaras, Drizabones, waxed hats.
 
Also useful for canvas backpacks and canvas tents.
 
 
 
     
 
Essential for taking care of your outdoor gear. This specialised cleaner is designed to clean and protect your waterproof/breathable garments. It has none of the nasty residues present in household washing detergents which can clog up the pores of your jacket and reduce performance.
 
eVent, Gore-Tex and Hydronaute garments should be washed regularly to remove body salts and oils, and general dirt. This prolongs the life of the garment and improves its breathable performance. Periodically, washing should be followed with a re-proofing product such as Storm Spray On Heat Cure Waterproofer.
