Product Details

Nikwax Polar Proof® has been specifically designed and optimized for fleece garments; it leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibers allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability and optimizing performance in wet weather. Additionally, it inhibits pilling of fleece fabrics, prolonging the life of gear.

Fleece fabrics are used to provide lightweight, insulating mid layers and additionally hats and gloves to keep you warm.
Fleece fabrics are made from synthetic fibers. The construction of the fabric allows air to be trapped between the fibers and warmed by body heat to provide insulation for the user.

WHY YOU SHOULD USE IT:

Although the individual fibers of fleece cannot absorb water, it is possible for water to become trapped in the spaces between the fibers. The accumulation of water reduces the insulating properties of fleece and also causes weight gain; fleece can hold up to 50% of its weight in water!
This reduces the comfort of the user causing them to feel wet and cold, but more importantly the reduction in insulation is dangerous and in severe cases can lead to hypothermia.

WHEN YOU SHOULD USE IT:

Your fleece garment could be soaking up water just because it is dirty. First, try cleaning it with Nikwax Tech Wash®, and if it is fairly new, or recently re-waterproofed, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) will be revitalized just from cleaning.  But once the garment has been thoroughly worn, you will need to add DWR using Nikwax Polar Proof®, after cleaning first with Nikwax Tech Wash®.

HOW YOU SHOULD USE IT:

Nikwax Polar Proof® is easy and quick to apply in a washing machine and ensures that the treatment goes right through the garment. The highly Durable Water Repellency (DWR) of Nikwax Polar Proof® develops on air drying. Therefore the need for tumble drying is removed, saving energy.
