    Klim Gear Care and Waterproofing

    Myself and Sledbunnyracing spent a good hour at the show with the Klim rep discussing care and waterproofing of Klim gear. To keep this short, first read the label, due too contrary belief it can and should be washed more often than not.(my understanding at least every 3rd weekend ) Gortex fiber work best clean. Washed in the washer with about half as much soap as a regular load and dried in the dryer at medium heat or hang too dry . If you find that it leaks, this is the product that you should use as I just treated my towagatee bibs , will certainly update this after some deep pow days ! It works on all vortex including motorfist!

    Re: Klim Gear Care and Waterproofing

    Last off-season I had contacted klim about my gear leaking. I had sent them to them for water testing and my jacket failed and was replaced but my pants passed. So they told me everything that you listed. To keep it clean and wash frequently and treat it with the same water proofing spray you posted. So I did all that on my pants and didn't notice any leaks for the season, so I would expect you should see similar results.

    Re: Klim Gear Care and Waterproofing

    I looked after my klim pants and jacket. Washed them and used revivex. After 10 years my gear started to leak. I sent my jacket and pants in for testing and they failed. They gave me brand new jacket and pants! I expected to pay prorated balance due to the age of my old suit. Nope.
    Im not sure how the others stack up warranty wise but Klim looked after me.

    We didn't discuss boots. Could/Should work however heat is important to reactivate the waterproofing so that might be a problem.

    Klim Gear Care and Waterproofing

    With that being said I'm going too use what I have left for product and spray my stompers , there not leaking so will be preventive maintenance , can't hurt too try as part of the directions say dry on medium or hang too dry !Keep in mind, hang too dry is regular cleaning , Heat should be used when product is applied.

    Klim Gear Care and Waterproofing

    People should know that this Is Not a Klim product we are suggesting. It was suggested by Jared Van Hauwaert of Klim (his permission to use his name).
    I will email him today about doing boots.
    NOTE: Jared said this product will also work with his competitors sledding gear as well.

    Thanks to Jared for giving Lyle and Myself so much time.
