Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On: The Ultimate Waterproofer for All Fabrics

Revolutionary, breathable, eco-friendly waterproofing spray

Dear reader, there's something truly special about standing under the sky's weeping clouds, experiencing the primal force of nature while sheltered in your own protective cocoon of clothing. And in my book, nothing wrecks this idyllic picture like water seeping in and sapping your body's warmth.

In our endless pursuit of outdoor comfort, let's talk about Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On. This isn't just your everyday run-of-the-mill waterproofer; it's the heartiest of companions in the face of stormy adversity.

Picture this: you're trekking through a rain-soaked forest. The air is thick with the scent of wet leaves and damp earth. It’s serene, almost meditative. However, that serenity is fleeting when your jacket begins to cling to your skin, cold and sodden, disrupting your harmony with nature. That's where Nikwax steps in, turning your average gear into your trusted shield.

At the heart of this high-performance waterproofer lies the spirit of breathability. We all know that familiar clammy sensation that sneaks in when you're working hard, body heat and moisture trapped with no place to go. Nikwax TX.Direct® tackles this challenge head-on by revitalizing the breathability of your waterproof clothing with wicking liners.

Essentially, this spray-on marvel adds water repellency where it matters most, allowing your sweat to evaporate and keeping you comfortably dry. In doing so, it not only enhances the performance of your gear, it keeps you warmer and drier, too. No need for tumble drying; just a spritz, an air dry, and you're ready to take on your next adventure.

And what's even better, it's eco-friendly to its core. It's non-flammable, PFC and aerosol free. So, you're not only doing yourself a favor but also giving a nod to Mother Nature.

Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On works its magic on all breathable waterproof fabrics. It's a fantastic companion for your Gore-Tex®, Sympatex®, eVent®, Nikwax Analogy® – you name it, it's got you covered.

Yet, it doesn't stop there. Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On doesn't just sit pretty on the surface. It seeps in, treating individual fibers with its flexible water repellent treatment, ensuring no nook or cranny is left unprotected. From elbows to seams on jackets, it's got your back.

But remember, even the best need a helping hand sometimes. Your raingear might be soaking up water because it's dirty. Give it a good clean with Nikwax Tech Wash®, and let Nikwax TX.Direct® bring back the DWR charm it once had.

All in all, Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On is your trusty tool in battling the elements. So, embrace the rain, the snow, the wind, and the mud. Armed with Nikwax, you're not just surviving the outdoors; you're thriving in it.

  7. Cost-Effective: Priced at $15.95, it's a cost-effective solution to prolong the life and improve the performance of your waterproof gear.


  1. Requires Regular Reapplication: The treatment isn't permanent and requires reapplication to maintain its water repellency. Depending on frequency of use, this could mean additional time and cost.
  2. Prerequisite Cleaning: Before application, the garment needs to be cleaned with Nikwax Tech Wash®. If you don't already have it, that's an additional product to purchase.
  3. Not Ideal for Non-Wicking Fabrics: If your garment doesn't have a wicking lining, it's recommended to use Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In instead. So, the Spray-On isn't universally suitable for all types of waterproof gear.
  4. Requires Dry Weather for Application: The product needs to air dry after application, which can be inconvenient in consistently damp weather conditions.
