This review is from: Nikwax Down Wash/Down Proof Twin Pack (Sports)
My down jaket only tends to come out in winter when its really cold. I only wash it when absolutly necessary as i believe its quality decreases with each wash as the down mass gets broken up/washed away (through the pores in the jaket). Use this product to wash (much better than harsh domestic soaps) then tumble dry (check cleaning instuctions for your jaket) as leaving to air dry causes the feathers to stick/clump together and then your left with a thick coat in one area and no insulation in another! Down jakets arent intended to be worn in the rain, tending to be only moisture proof, you will need to carry waterproofs if you think it might rain. With this in mind the down proof is only going to have a limited effect, for example when snow melts on your coat or when you get a few spots of rain.
