How durable was the DWR treatment of the face fabric? The DWR on my marmot gortex jacket was supposedly very environmentally friendly but failed very rapidly in wear areas resulting in wetting out.

Mine hasn’t started wetting out yet - I’m about 4/5 months in. What I’ve founded with modern waterproofs is that they require far more washing and treating. I wash other jackets in Tech Wash regularly and then occasionally reproof using a tumble drier.

Indeed, I've been intending to do mine for ages now. So much for the eco friendly credentials of the DWR coatings when you need to regularly treat them with other chemicals to keep the jacket working well.
