    Goretext even whent he fabric gets that wet look doesn't (isn't supposed to) permeate through to below. There is a "middle layer" even on very thing shells of the actual goretex fabric.

    They didn't get wet from water going into / under somehow, (vs. through) the fabric?

    I've always had good luck with goretex so far. No coating necessary, just wash it ever couple months.

    I've used both the wash-in (NikWax) and the spray on stuff, and if you're after some serious waterproofing, go for the spray. Just be nice and even when you spray it, and also mind where (room) that you spray it. I think it's silicone based, and I sprayed my shit at the beginning of this season while hanging up in my LR with hardwood floor, and I damn near killed myself for about a week on that f-ing floor - it was so slippery!

    But yeah, I think you could waterproof a pair of jeans with enough of the spray on stuff.

    Is it me or does that spray on stuff really have an odd smell?

    Q: after using the spray on, do you guys put the garment in the dryer to bake on the stuff?

    I didn't notice any smell. I let mine air dry.

    Ditto on both. Never heard of throwing it in the dryer.

    Didnt notice any odd smell. I put mine in the dryer as that is what the instructikns said to do. Actully washed the pants and jacket first with the included detergent.
