Can you recommend a durable water repellency treatment? I have tried to treat my rain jacket in the past and have been disappointed in the results.

Andrea Jeffery - Contestar

If fabric becomes wet, it loses its performance and breathability indeed. Therefore, most technical garments contain a tiny layer of Durable Water Repellency (DWR) coating outside. This layer of liquid prevents dirt, grease, oil, and water as well. But, usually, protecting this essential fabric layer becomes very difficult yet.

Therefore, some people use the best waterproofing spray for the outdoor fabric to protect this liquid coating. These waterproofing sprays protect our footwear, and other clothing stuffs from water damage. Though this spray’s main function is to prevent water and form a protective barrier against sun and dirt, it has more benefits than one. These waterproofing sprays improve the performance of your fabrics.
