Our bags are made with fabrics that are coated on the interior with urethane for water resistance and treated on the exterior with a durable water-repellent finish. Over time these surface treatments can wear, leaving your bag and its contents more exposed to rain and snow than you might like.
Using Nikwax® is an environmentally and ethically responsible way to renew the water-repellent exterior treatment. It is also recommended as an extra precaution for a new bag if you intend to use it in extremely wet environments.
We've made Nikwax® Tent & Gear SolarProof® available in two new sizes:
Nikwax® Tent & Gear SolarProof® 17 floz / 500ml bottle ($18. No need to dilute)
Nikwax® Tent & Gear SolarProof® Concentrated 150ml Pouch ($13. 3.5 times more concentrated than Nikwax in a bottle. Must be diluted before use)
Both are in-stock and ready to ship within one business day.
