Anyone who is active outside in damp or wet conditions will benefit from softshell clothing. Whether you’re a mountaineer, cyclist, dog walker, or you work outside as a farmer or surveyor, softshell garments will provide comfort and protection.
Nikwax SoftShell Proof™ helps with breathable softshell garments which are most likely to get sweaty and wet inside when used in damp or wet conditions. If the outer fabric absorbs water, the garment can lose up to 70% of its breathability.
To maintain their water repellency and breathability it is essential that the Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating is maintained. Nikwax SoftShell Proof™ has been specifically formulated to maintain optimum performance of softshell fabrics.
