    Water proofing product

    Had my Streetguard for a couple o' years now..probably time to
    respray. Any product recco's?
    Also, it has faded to a purpleish colour on the arms and chest..will a respray
    possibly darken it?
    Thanks

    I use Nikwax TX Direct spray on water treatment after every wash, typically once a season but sometimes more often. I've not noticed any effect to color garments, but my wife will be the first to tell you that I likely wouldn't notice if she slipped die into the wash.

    I wash, spray on the garment when wet, following the label instructions, then hang the garment to dry.

    Personally the purple isn' t a worry for me either..but kinda liked the
    original black better.

    If it is a Gore-Tex product, then you should use what Gore-Tex recommends for both cleaning and treatment.

    Gore-Tex Outerwear Washing Instructions.

    I use Shout to clean my whole suit and 3M Scotchgard Outdoor to treat it. Another product is spray-on ReviveX. Gore-Tex does not recommend any wash-in treatments.
