Unhappy Waterproofing Clothing

Hey, Can any one suggest a product to waterproof my jacket pants and gloves for the upcoming season. I noticed towards the end of last season my clothing was starting to seep moisture through it and not bead droplets as such . I know there is a few but can anyone recommend a product, Thanks heaps

+ 3m scotch guard in key areas, knees, ass, all over the mits. Put a coat of it on let it seep in and dry. keep applying coats until it does not soak in any more. Works for me in the wet washington snow.

This is probably your best bet. The 3M stuff also works, but I'm not too sure how it impacts breathability.

How does Nik wax affect the breathability?
