Nikwax Down Proof™
  • Product Description
    Nikwax Down Proof™ has been specifically designed and optimised for down filled gear. It adds Durable Water Repellency (DWR), which protects against rain and condensation, improving the natural insulating properties of down, and prolongs the effective life of your down gear. It leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual down filaments and fabric fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability and optimising performance in cold and damp conditions. Nikwax Down Proof™ is a safe, easy to use product for down filled gear. It is quick to apply in a washing machine and ensures that the treatment goes right through the item, treating both the outer fabric and the down fill. The DWR of Nikwax Down Proof™ develops on air drying. However, tumble drying is recommended to ensure that the down is dried thoroughly and as quickly as possible.

So, I have a Halo down jacket that I love. Will this afford it a bit of rain-proofing? Or will "Nikwax Down Proof" be better? I live in Melbourne, and my Halo is perfect, but my understanding is that I can't get it wet. Cheers, Matt

The Down Wash is designed to clean as well as revitalize the DWR finish to the jacket and the Down Proof is designed to reproof any treatment down has to repel water and also to revitalize the DWR finish.

This is all only for small amounts of water. If you are out in the rain, we would recommend layering with a Rain Jacket, or you could also have a look at our new Waterproof Down Jacket, called the Equinox.

Can you use this product instead of the down wash? Does it also clean oil and dirt off down products?
Emily M on Jul 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Emily, for the best results, it is recommended to wash with the Down Wash prior to using the Down Proof. This is to make sure any dirt’s and oils are removed, which gives the DWR a better chance of being applied correctly. Thanks
