Which waterproofing for softshells?


Softshell impregnation – why is it so important?

Breathable softshell clothes have waterproof and windproof properties - it is not without reason that most tourists choose them when going on a long hike. To keep them in the best possible condition and enjoy them for years, in addition to washing, it is worth introducing regular impregnation. This simple procedure will not only affect the life of the jacket or trousers, but will also renew its properties during rain. Thanks to systematic impregnation, softshell clothing is water-resistant and wicks away moisture even many years after purchase. When deciding on impregnation, it is worth paying attention to the effect of a specific preparation and how it is used. We can choose from both impregnations added to the laundry and those in the form of an easy-to-use spray.

Softshell Proof impregnation by Nikwax – support during washing

One way to impregnate softshell clothing is to add a special washing preparation. A solution worth recommending is, among others: Softshell Proof impregnation by Nikwax , maintaining the waterproof and breathable properties of this type of clothes. All you need to do is add the right amount of it to the laundry - its hydrophobic properties are activated  when the jacket is air dried. During washing, the agent reaches every centimeter of clothing - it leaves a special coating on the fibers, thanks to which moisture escapes and the clothing still provides adequate ventilation. This is an extremely convenient and safe solution that will allow you to enjoy the benefits of softshell clothing for a long time, regardless of the prevailing conditions!

Nikwax Softshell Proof waterproofing spray – comfort and effectiveness

With the care of softshell fabrics in mind,  impregnating preparations in the form of sprays have also been created, ensuring even greater convenience of use. Just like the washing version, they give clothes permanent hydrophobicity and restore their breathable and vapor-permeable properties. Nikwax Softshell Proof impregnating spray  is an extremely efficient product that significantly affects the behavior of the material during rain and the service life of the clothing. Simply spray the washed clothes evenly with the preparation - a method that does not generate any electricity or water costs. The spray impregnation  is non-flammable and completely safe to use. This is also an option that we can use even when traveling, if we didn't have time to impregnate the jacket before the trip - just put it in our backpack! The assortment includes both washing and spray impregnations.
