Nikwax's Down Proof is a water based waterproofing which adds/renews water repellency and revives breathability of down products. This prolongs the life of down gear and optimises performance in wet weather.

Nikwax says:

Easy to use, safe, high performance wash in waterproofing for down filled clothing and gear. Adds Durable Water Repellency; reducing weight gain, maintaining the insulation and breathability of down filled items in cold and damp conditions.

WaterBased waterproofing which protects feather and down fillings against loos of insulation caused by water.

For best results remove all non-washable parts and clean items with Nikwax Down Wash. Always use Down Wash and Down Proof in seperate wash cycles. No need to dry items before waterproofing. Shake well before use.

Nikwax Down Proof adds durable water repellency to your down filled garments. Down is an amazing natural fiber for its compressibility, resilience, and warmth. The major drawback of down is it's inability to retain loft and insulate when wet. Simply use this Down Proof in your washing machine at home to safely add Durable Water Repellency to your favourite winter garments.
