    Ever suffer from water stains, leaky tents, or dirty coats?  Sounds familiar to me as well!  There is an easy solution to all of those problems, it’s been hiding right under your nose, it’s called Nikwax.  Nikwax is a line of products that range from cleaning, waterproofing, conditioning, and UV protection without the harsh side effects that traditional cleaning detergents can have on gear.  The brand has come out with a vast array of products that target a specific function that can be added to technical materials.  We want our outdoor clothing to go through it all: rain, snow, wind, and dirt. Nikwax is a valuable product that lets us improve and re-vamp our favorite outdoor wardrobe while getting down with all the elements. Here are a few of our favorite Nikwax products!

Down Wash is a product used on down filled items such as sleeping bags, jackets, and even bedding. You simply add the soap based biodegradable cleaner into the wash cycle and viola! Your gear will come out clean, without clumping together like it can when cleaned traditionally (throwing a couple of tennis balls in the dryer adds loft back into the down as well!). This gentle formula will protect the down and the technical material as well as keeping the water-resistance intact. This product comes in an optional bundle pack with the Down Proof which adds a wash-in layer of water-repellent as well as breathability.
Wetter weather conditions are just around the corner and it will soon be time to break out the Gore-Tex.  While the Gore-Tex products are high quality, it never hurts to amp up your waterproofed garment. T.X. Direct can be used in two ways, either added to the wash for waterproof/breathable fabrics or sprayed on for gear with wicking/absorbent liners.  Both methods are quick and easy, while causing no damage to your gear.

Let us not forget the winter boots, especially suede!  When fabrics such as these get wet, water spots can leave stains on the fabric. You can save yourself from those unsightly spots while adding a quick layer of waterproofing with Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof.  It is the best accessory when buying a new pair of suede boots or shoes. This product sprays on easily, keeping your boots looking great and your feet dry all winter.
All of these Nikwax products among others can be found at the Alpine Shop and online
