/ Waterproofing gloves
I have a pair of OR arete gloves that could do with a bit of proofing. Anybody got experience of doing this?
Any advice apprecieated?
Works for me - I even tried one of each (sad but it's my job)
Nikwax make a "sponge on waterproofing for gloves".
A specialist glove proofer seems like marketing rubbish to me; surely you could just use their standard spray on fabric proofer? But you could experiment. Use glove proof on the left glove, and TX.Direct Spray On on the right glove? Let us know if you actually notice a difference.
Is there any reason why i cant wash them with my jacket with tech wash and proofer. they are a modular glove with a removable thin liner so i cant see why not
