At Gear re-Store, you know we love gear that works well. That’s why we love when you take care of your garments at home! If your home treatment isn’t getting the results you are looking for, though, don’t toss your garment just yet!
DWR is an acronym for Durable Water Repellancy: an essential component in the optimal performance of waterproof breathable jackets and pants.
Unfortunately DWR is not permanent and therefore, over time, needs to be restored. This is true of all garments that use waterproof and breathable technology whether GORE-TEX®, Event®, Eco Storm™, Entrant® DT, H2No®, Hyvent®, Omni-Tech® or other proprietary fabrications. You’ll know it’s time to restore the DWR when moisture is absorbed rather than repelled from the outer fabric.
By curing the DWR formulation deep into the fabrication of your garment and then utilizing a special heat technology developed by Gear Restore, we can make sure your garment’s DWR coating will last substantially longer than by doing it yourself.
