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.

Down filled items are used to provide lightweight insulation to keep you warm. The structure of down allows air to be trapped between its filaments and warmed by body heat to provide insulation for the user.

If down gets wet it clumps together. This causes it to lose loft and insulation as it can’t trap air effectively. When wet, down loses all of its insulating properties, as water conducts heat away from the body up to 25 times faster than air. It will also gain weight and its breathability will be significantly reduced; leaving you feeling cold, wet and uncomfortable.

Down filled items are most likely to get sweaty and wet inside when used in damp or wet conditions. Therefore it is important to stop down filled gear from getting wet by applying Durable Water Repellency (DWR). The outer fabric of your down filled item, as well as the down inside, must be maintained to ensure comfort. Through use it will eventually wear off and need to be renewed with Nikwax Down Proof™.

For best results remove all non-washable parts and clean item(s) first with Nikwax Down Wash™ in a separate wash cycle. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions (large items can be treated by hand).

  • Remove all detergent build up from the detergent dispenser.
  • Place clean item in washing machine (maximum 1 item).
  • Use 150ml for 1 item.
  • Run 30°C synthetic cycle and slow spin.
  • After the cycle has finished run multiple spin cycles, each time incrementally increasing the spin speed, to remove excess water.

To maintain waterproofing always wash with Nikwax Down Wash™. Do not use detergents.
