Has anyone used a wash-in rainproof before?

I used one on my guidewear after 12 years or so. It did ok, but wasn’t anywhere close to original status. Finally broke down and bought a new rain suit last year. Can’t remember the product but I got it from cabelas.

I’ve tried the spray on and the wash in and never get a great result from them

Seems like rain gear only lasts me 7-8 years and gotta buy new

The trick is…once you spray it on, it seems like ya got recoat it pretty often. I wound up doing the same…just buying new gear.

Send it to RainyPass and let them repair anything that’s wrong with them and retreat with their Durable Water Repellent. They specialize in Gore-Tex

I just looked. I know why I’ve never heard of them. They want $125, plus shipping both ways, to replace a zipper on my BPS100 jacket!!

ReVivex is good. For Gore Tek it only makes the outside shed water. Gore Tek is the membrane fabric under the shell. Don’t Fabric Softner on Gore Tex. Washing and drying Gore Tek according to the label helps. Then spray with ReVivex and dry in the dryer.
