Waterproof spray for textiles?

My waterproof textiles don't seem to be waterproof anymore after a good soaking on Sunday.:upset:

I've seen a few sprays that claim to help textiles resist water but have any of you used them and do they work in heavy rain?

Nikwax and I must admit I wasnt impressed.

Its expensive and appears to be no more than watered down PVA glue ?

Fabsil

Get it in camping shops or on ebay

#1 Spray  http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FABSIL-600ML-WATERPROOFING-SPRAY-ALL-OUTDOOR-FABRIC-/150419613125?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item2305b525c5 

Spray! It works but not worth the money, better off buying the paint on + you can do anything with it.

TX Direct

Washed my ultra smelly Frank Thomas XTi textile suit on a wool wash, dried and sprayed with TX direct. 5 minutes later fully waterproof and ready for my daily commute rain or shine. It ain't cheap at £7.99 but will have enough for 3 re-waterproofings.

Regards

I've tried some in the past.........

I've tried some in the past and ended up with jackets that are waterproof, but no longer breathable.  You just end up sweating so much you get wetter than when the jacket used to leak.

 

Ride safe,

My Mrs works at an outdoor shop :) 


Take a look at the web site www.air-outdoors.co.uk

If you give her a ring she will recommend what ever is best for the job

ta.

Thanks for the replies, looks like it's worth a tenner then.
If it keeps out half of what the jacket's letting in, then I'll be very happy.

I've tried...please check this...

Hey guys, I have something to share. I have found a site called Sunarmor Water and Stain Protection. I have notice and read lot of information regarding this site; some said that their products really worked for their ski jackets, carpets, furniture, upholstery and any fabric surfaces. So, I just tried their products, and it really worked with my car upholstery to avoid stains. Their products also helped with my outdoor furniture to have a resistance against heavy rains for three months. Check this site www.sunarmor.co.uk
