    Re: waterproofing pants

    I recently used a wash and waterproofing spray from Grainger. After spraying the gear with the water proofer I notice the rain beads up more on the jacket than before. But I was only in the rain from the truck to walking inside so dont have a full test for dryness.

    I picked up some of the tech wash for my nano puff jacket, seemed to work pretty good and it got the stink out of it.

    I've had good luck washing my Gore Tex and performance material clothing with Sport-Wash by Atsko. It's less expensive to use than Tech Wash.

    ^ Good to know. Thanks.

    You should probably get the garden hose out tonight and test them. Would suck to be out on an epic day and you're soaked to you underwear.
