Renewing a rain jacket

    Does anyone know of a product that can be applied to a rain jacket to renew its ability to shed water?

    Boiler... Welcome.

    My advice, go get a new rainjacket. Once the wear factor sets in there truly isn't a "renewable" product to help you out. Sorry....

    about 150 bucks and a trip to your local sports store and get a new FJ jacket lol

    I agree.   You have to bite the bullet and get a new one.   There are some spray applications, but they dissappear after a few hours of rain.

    If your jacket is in fact waterproof (it has goretex, or the like), and it's just that the outer repellency has worn off, you can use something like a Nikwax wash in for the jacket.  You wash the jacket with a capful or more of the Nikwax, and then dry the jacket, and it sets the water repellent on the shell, so water will bead up on the outside again.

    I use it on my ski shell at least once a season, and have used it on my ZR rain jacket, and ZR pants.  I've bought the Nikwax at REI before.

    Good luck!

    I'm going to re-open this thread to see if anyone has any additional thoughts on renewing waterproofing on your rain jacket/rain shirt - other than buying a new jacket/rain shirt.  I'm doing this because of a customer's query on the chat on footjoy.com.

    I would potentially try -  Kiwi Camp Dry

    I've had a lot of luck restoring waterproof integrity to my backpacking gear, tent, clothes, etc. using Revivex.

    Try Scotchgard.. Worked well while in Army in rain forests of Wa state!

    I used Scotchgard with great success

    Glad you opened it up; looks like there were a couple of new ideas out there.  Thanks.
