Products to use on Spyder jacket

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a Spyder Zermatt jacket that I want to clean and maintain.  The following products are what I have access to:

I know that I can use the Nikwax tech wash to wash the jacket first.  But how about maintaining the water repellency (spylon)?  I bought the nikwax tx.direct wash-in but isnt' that going to add water repellency to the inside liner too?...which means no breathability?

 

On a side note, is Nikwax tent & gear solarproof suitable for my arcteryx 35 and 50L backpacks?

 

Thanks.

Have you tried calling Spyder? That is what I would do first to see what they recommend.

 

If that doesn't turn up any suggestions, then I would read the panel of the jacket and then compare it with the ReviveX to see if its compatible.

 

If so, wash the jacket with Nikwax or similar, hang the jacket on a hanger, spray with ReviveX, then toss in the dryer per the instructions. That's it.
