简介

Your jacket has got your back. It follows you on adventures, keeping you warm and dry even through the stormiest weather. So return the favor—keep your jacket healthy and strong by reapplying the DWR (durable water repellent) finish to your jacket. This guide will show you how to test whether your jacket needs to be treated and how to treat it. You'll want to start with a clean jacket. Dirt, oil and use can wear the DWR finish off your jacket, allowing water to penetrate into the fabric. Fortunately, reapplying a DWR finish is easy. A trip through the wash is all it takes to give your jacket new life—making it ready for rain or shine.

      • Water droplets should roll right off of the jacket when you pick it up.
