Henry- Lloyd foulies

Heh, picked up a set of used foulies for 80 bucks at Blue Pelican in Alameda. I see the instructions how to wash them. I lived in the mountains for 10 years and still have my Mountain Hardware Gortex parka.

So, what product do you recommend to reapply anti-water sealant? Sorry if I confused myself there!!! Any ideas?

Re: Henry- Lloyd foulies

Alan,

Do you think its Gortex? I asked a similar question here:

http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...et-205781.html

Sadly the business has changed dramatically. I believe the factory in Manchester has gone and the business sold and moved to Sweden.

That said I have also just bought a HL sailing jacket on the cheap, it will be going in the washing machine on a gentle wash without conditioners.

Someone did recommend this stuff to me a while ago:

Nikwax or Grangers are both good; they have various products for outdoor gear. Any of their products for restoring hardshell DWR should work. Do check the tags on your foulies to see if they permit running through the dryer, then crosscheck to see if the DWR also requires that (some being heat-activated).

I'm told the spray-on application works better than the wash-in, but some have trouble getting an even coat that way. I suspect it's from not spraying enough though.

Gortex? Good question. Will pay more attention on the labeling. Thanks for the links.
