Nikwax® Tent & Gear SolarProof® is a safe, non-aerosol reproofing spray suitable for all TOM BIHN bags.
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.
Nikwax® is safe and effective to use on all of the fabrics that our bags are made out of.
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.
Available in two varieties:
Nikwax® Tent & Gear SolarProof® 17 floz / 500ml bottle (no need to dilute)
Nikwax® Tent & Gear SolarProof® Concentrated 150ml Pouch (3.5 times more concentrated than Nikwax in a bottle. Must be diluted before use)
Sewn in Seattle
Our bags are designed and sewn right here in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.
That allows us to be control freaks in the best way possible; we have direct control and oversight of the quality of our materials, our products, and the jobs and working environment that we help create. It also offers us a unique spontaneity: when we have an idea for a new product or accessory, we can design it, figure out how to build it, add it to our website and be ready to ship it out our front door all within just a few weeks. How cool is that?

THE BIHN Guarantee
Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business since 1972 and we stand behind what we make.
If something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll fix it for free. Repairs due to normal wear and tear or due to other things that are not our fault will be performed, when possible, at a reasonable charge right here in our Seattle factory where your bag was made. Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and almost always evident while the product is still new. Keep in mind that bags and packs are often subject to extreme wear in everyday use: do not expect them to last forever. Only true love lasts forever! You can expect a TOM BIHN product to give years and years of hard service.
