I have a Dainese D-Dry textile jacket that's lost its ability to repel the rain. Unfortunately riding in the UK the one guarantee is you are going to ride in the rain. Anyway does anyone know if the jacket can be re-proofed?.
Hopefully someone has had some success re-proofing a textile jacket.

I bought some water repellant from blacks outdoor shop a few years ago when I was working in the uk. Used it on my hiking boots and it worked well.

Yes you can. 1st give it a good wash make it fresh and new, remove all C.E armour and inner etc then Proof it with a canvas proofing, apply it with a sponge it will go milky white and then go clear, maybe apply another coat after that one dries and you are all set for a few years. you should be able to buy it at a camping and or caravanning store.

i used nikwax on my 7 year old (at the time) aerostich and it worked great. i was able to commute through some pretty heavy rainfall and never had issues.

it's been a while since i did it since i don't commute in the rain anymore, but i believe it was two different treatments. one bottle was to clean and the second was to waterproof.

I got some of the nikwax (cleaner&waterproofer) it's better than it was, I got myself an over jacket. Thanks for the info everyone.
