    waterproofing pants

    i like my ski pants, they were pretty cheap and i've gotten a couple seasons out of them, but lately they've done a CRAPPY job keeping me dry. on a snowy day or one where they're making snow that falls on the chairs my butt is soaked 1/2 thru the day.

    next season will look for new pants but until then has anyone successively used any after-market spray on waterproofing stuff for pants?

    secondarily, what is considered a good waterproof rating, for when i do start shopping for new ones?

    shit happens, wear a helmet.

    Should find a new pair now while they are starting to clearance the stuff out.

    I plan on getting some of that Nikwax wash and waterproof stuff soon to wash and treat a coat. Will let you know how it works.

    Nikwax. Tech Wash first then TX Direct. The spray on version is superior to the wash in.

    I saw that, was hoping I didn't need to by one for each.
