With my first jacket, I didn't know how to care for it so I washed it too many times and didn't re-nikwax it. Over time the waterproofing got poorer and poorer, and believe me I noticed. My current jacket (Special Blend) is goretex which as shagmasta points out is unbeatable. I just don't get wet with that sumbitch.
