Why we made this
Nikwax Down Proof™ 300mL is 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.
  • Product Description
    Nikwax Down Proof™ has been specifically designed and optimised for down filled gear. It adds Durable Water Repellency (DWR), which protects against rain and condensation, improving the natural insulating properties of down, and prolongs the effective life of your down gear. It leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual down filaments and fabric fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability and optimising performance in cold and damp conditions. Nikwax Down Proof™ is a safe, easy to use product for down filled gear. It is quick to apply in a washing machine and ensures that the treatment goes right through the item, treating both the outer fabric and the down fill. The DWR of Nikwax Down Proof™ develops on air drying. However, tumble drying is recommended to ensure that the down is dried thoroughly and as quickly as possible.

How much should be used each wash, i.e I have 2 down jackets?

BEST ANSWER: Hi Isaac, please checkout this video we made recently on how to wash your down jacket:

Thanks the Macpac Team
Will this wash my down sleeping bag & add DWR at the same time? And Is it ok to use a front loading washing machine?
El Grego on May 25, 2020
It is a washing product only, so you’d need to treat DWR separately. It would be fine to use in a front loader
As an aside, we wouldn’t recommend washing a sleeping bag in a domestic washing machine, because they could get damaged - check care instructions for correct washing advice.
Thanks, the Macpac Team.
