I wish I could but I am already grounded for this weekend for getting a C in a class and saying anything like that would probably mean another week or 2 of no riding.

Tarzanman Don't let your mom near any of your snow stuff anymore. Read the directions for using the Nikwax and wash it/dry it yourself in a separate load. If your mom complains about you wasting a wash cycle for two items of clothing then ask her whether she cares more about $2 worth of water or you getting frostbite on the hill due to a $100 pair of pants that she tried to ruin.

NWBoarder Amazon.com had a sale a little bit ago to get the Nikwax Techwash with the Nikwax TXDirect. In fact, they still have it. This is what you want. Amazon.com: Nikwax Hardshell Twin Pack: Clothing The TX will re-waterproof your gear, and the tech wash will keep it that way when it needs cleaning.

I use Nikwax TX Direct to revive or replenish the DWR coating. They come in wash-in or spray-on. Which one will work depends on the kind of tech fabric you have.

You can find this stuff at REI/MEC/Outdoor stores.

Also get Nikwax Tech wash for future washes.
