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.

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.
