Easy to use, safe, high performance waterproofing and UV blocker for all synthetic weatherproof textiles.

Duke of Edinburgh Recommended

Nikwax Tent and Gear SolarProof adds DWR, increases fabric strength & protects against UV deterioration.

One application can double the effective life of fabrics, by protecting against UV damage, while also providing Durable Water Repellency (DWR) to keep the rain out.

It can be applied to wet or dry synthetic fabrics.

Synthetic fabrics used for tents and rucksacks are coated with a water repellent treatment. Ultraviolet light both destroys the water repellency and reduces the fabric's tear strength, significantly shortening the lifespan of equipment.
To most effectively benefit from the UV and DWR protection of Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof, it's best applied to new equipment.
Over time the DWR will wear off through use. Both the DWR and UV protection can be replenished by reapplication of Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof®.

Worth the buy, 25 June 2016
By GBCamper (West Yorkshire)
Good product, apply to wet tent or with wet cloth for better results, goes further with same effect. Minus a star as my seams still leaked despite me lathering them with this. Reverted to Seamgrip. But overall great for tent, my coat, rucksack, even did my brolly. Gives them a new lease of life.

Used this to re-proof my Vango Icarus 500. It hasn't made the slightest bit of difference - the slightest bit of rain and we still end with puddles inside.

used it on an old rucksack that leaked rather badly on its last outing, after following the directions its been given a new lease of life, after applying the proofer it no longer acts like a sponge, also got used on a 20 quid festival tent that is now water proof for the first time since purchasing it a big bonus for the kids garden play:)
