My weezle is starting to lose its water repellence. Can anyone recommend what to spray on it to restore it?

<font color='#000080'>You could try a waterproofing used for camping and boots etc., I'm sure that would do the job, but I don't know if it will let water throught the other way. I used to use G-Sport from my local Army/Navy surplus, you should be able to get something similar. Just sprays on.

WHy not e-mail the gusy at Weezle? THey must know what's best for it, may even send you something free!

Camping shops sell different ones for different fabrics.

The weezle wants one designed for "Pertex".

I found some in my local city centre camping shop without problem.

I've seen some waterproofing stuff in a spray form that was geared up to down lined kit. As said Weezle probably give you a definitive answer.

Since you've got some useful answers, I now feel justified in being a smartarse and saying:

"most people tend to just put a drysuit over it"  


Sorry.

Any camping shop that sells Snugpack sleeping bags will be able to point you to a bottle of the stuff you need..

Nickwax manufacture a down wash which waterproofs it and a detergent that cleans all the sweat from the inner down material.  any outdoor shop will sell it.
