    I tried the Nicwax for the first time a couple of weeks ago because I saw it on a post here! That stuff works! It saved a coat that I was ready to throw away and now its as waterproof as when I first purchased it.

    I have posted on this often, and others have tried this product and also approved.

    This is an upgrade to their earlier product, which comes with an orange label, and does not require putting in a dryer to set the waterproofing. This can simply be applied and let dry.

    As an added note, I just ordered a new gallon (old one lasted 2 years) and they sent me the older, cheaper, product. In waiting to return, I was searching for another seller to re-order from. I found this product.

    The reviews on Amazon were very good, so I decided to give it a try. I used it on my nylon pullover I wear while working around the house as a top layer. It is not waterproof, just nylon. I sprayed it totally and set it to dry. The next day, I put it on and stuck my arm under the tap. Water rolled off like on a plastic sheet. Zero penetration by the water.

    When I sprayed the pullover, I also sprayed 2 sheets of paper towel (I heard about this test on the net) I also let that dry 1 day. I put it in my hand, made a cup shape, and put it under the tap. Again, all the water poured off, no penetration. I figure if it can make a paper towel waterproof, it is pretty good stuff.

    The reason I am also recommending the StarBrite is because it is about $13 less per gallon than the Extreme. One gallon lasts a long time. I spray everything I wear outside, since you can't trust MT weather.

    While I have not personally used the Nikwax, it also gets good reviews, so that is a good product also. Just check prices. I would bet (have not checked) these others will do the same thing, a little cheaper. (I kinda thing they are all the same stuff)
