Restore Outdoor Kit With Storm

Over time, dirt and oil inhibit the water repellency treatment on waterproof kit, meaning it will start absorbing water and losing performance. Cleaning, waterproofing and aftercare brand STORM offers an effective, economical and eco-friendly solution that can clean, refresh and restore the waterproof performance of outdoor gear in just three easy steps.

Suitable for the aftercare and re-proofing of all fabrics and materials including, Gore-Tex, Sympatex and eVent, STORM’s high-performance products enhance the technical performance and prolong the life of outdoor gear, clothing and footwear.

A key benefit of STORM is that it uses the same technology in its proofing products that many leading industry brands already use on their own apparel at manufacture. This makes it a complementary solution for extending the waterproof performance of outdoor wear and equipment.

Step 1: CLEAN

Ingredients in household detergents that are designed to stay on fabrics after rinsing to give them a ‘bright clean look’ can cause waterproofing treatments to fail so it is advisable not to use standard washing powders and liquids on waterproofs.

Ideal for all clothing, STORM WASH for outdoor apparel (SRP £5.75 for 300ml) is a specially-formulated cleaner that lifts away dirt and grime in preparation for proofing without damaging the manufacturer’s original DWR treatment. Simply add it into the detergent compartment.

Features:

  • Specially formulated for technical outerwear and equipment
  • Lifts dirt, grime and contaminants from fabrics without damaging the manufacturers original DWR treatment
  • pH neutral for safe use at home and unaffected by different water types
  • Suitable for all materials
  • Use in the detergent compartment

Step 2: PROOF

STORM’s cleaner and waterproofer can be used in the same wash cycle, thus using less water and energy than other products . The one-wash system is not only kinder to the environment, but also to the garment – through less washing damage.

Its PFC-free ECO FRIENDLY PROOF (SRP £12 for 300ml) is suitable for all technical outerwear and shell garments – simply add into the fabric conditioner compartment in the same machine cycle as the WASH for a quick and easy way to restore the original long-lasting finish to waterproof garments.

In the Greenpeace report Chemistry for any Weather, it has been noted, praised and recommended for its high level of resistance to abrasive damage – which is significant in maintaining waterproof performance.

Features:

  • Advanced and patented heat curing PFC-free proofer restores original waterproof performance to all outerwear
  • Offers great waterproofing levels and levels of abrasion resistance, giving a lasting finish
  • Non-marking application
  • Use in the conditioner compartment

Step 3: DRY

ECO FRIENDLY PROOF is an advanced and patented heat curing proofer. To activate, first line-dry the garment then tumble-dry for 20 minutes or iron without steam. This will cure the garment for maximum performance.
