Nikwax create a range of cleaning and waterproofing products for outdoor equipment.
All outdoor gear needs cleaning and reproofing to perform at its best, and Nikwax products cover the full spectrum of gear, whilst still being environmentally friendly and very efficient.
Nikwax Tech Wash and TX Direct ranges are ideal for shell layers, and footwear care products are available for all types of boot or shoe.
Nikwax is exactly what it says on the tin – Nick’s Wax, invented by walker Nick Brown to preserve his own walking boots during years of wandering around the Scottish countryside as a young boy.
He concocted a wax to protect and waterproof his leather boots, and in 1977, frustrated that there was nothing in the shops that could do the same job, he made the first commercial batch of his secret formula for the open market.
Nikwax maximises performance in a range of cleaning, waterproofing and conditioning products for clothing, footwear and equipment.
Easy to use – either by hand, washing machine or spray-on – Nikwax comes in a variety of environmentally-friendly, highly-effective treatments which will prolong the life of shoes, boots, jackets and tents. If it was originally waterproof, Nikwax will give it a new lease of life at a fraction of the cost of replacement.
Helping you stay dry, warm and comfortable in the worst of weather conditions, Nikwax’s safe, non-toxic and water-based technology saves you money by alleviating the need to buy new, thereby reducing the landfill space necessary to cope with the cast-offs, and the consumption of materials and energy needed to replace them.
