Wash & DWR Treatment

Does your waterproof breathable (WPB) garment feel like it is leaking? Maybe not.

Did you have some fun in the mud or dust but you aren’t sure how to wash your gear without damaging the membrane? We can help.

We provide wash & waterproof services for:

GORE-TEX® Garments

GORE-TEX® Sleeping Bags

Other Waterproof Breathable Membranes such as:

eVent™, HyVent®, Polartec® NeoShell® or Power Shield® Pro

The bottom line is, clean gear simply works better. It breathes better, it resists leaks and stains, and it ultimately lasts longer if you keep it clean.

After a few years of use, WPB garments might not perform as they once did, but this is no reason to get rid of this gear. Membrane fabrics such as GORE-TEX® and eVent® are manufactured with a laminated waterproof layer that keeps you dry, but these garments also have an external Durable Water Repellant (DWR) treatment that is applied to the outside of the fabric.

This is what causes rain to bead up and roll off the fabric, and it can wear off over time. We can restore this finish and bring your garment back to top performance. We recommend a DWR treatment once per year for best results.

At Rainy Pass Repair, we use Gear Aid cleaning products, and we follow the cleaning recommendation established by W. L. Gore & Associates.
