If you notice the fabric of your coat is absorbing rather than repelling water, it’s time to reproof it. This guide will show you how to reproof a waterproof coat or jacket using either a waterproofing spray or a wash in waterproofer.
The Mountain Warehouse waterproof spray is an easy way to improve the water repellency of your coat.
If you need to clean your waterproof jacket as well as reproofing, Mountain Warehouse Wash n Proof is for you.
Our proofers should not alter the look or handle of the fabric. However, it is recommended that the products are tested on a small, inconspicuous area before spraying on or washing into the garment.
Mountain Warehouse Spray on Proofer
A waterproof spray will help reproof your jacket to maximise its waterproofing and breathability.
Always wash your coat first if re-proofing using a waterproof spray. Dirt and oil can clog up the breathable membrane found in many waterproof jackets, making it feel as though water is penetrating through the fabric. When washing your jacket, it is important to use a specialist performance cleaner designed for technical outerwear rather than everyday household detergents.

How To Use Waterproofing Spray For Coats & Jackets:
For high abrasion areas such as the elbows and shoulders, it’s recommended that a second coat of proofer is applied. Again, allow to dry naturally.
If you want to wash your coat at the same time as reproofing, we recommend using Wash n Proof.
