I treated an aging snowboarding jacket with it, and the results have been very satisfactory. The biggest thing to remember is to RUB IT IN - once you spray this stuff on, work it into the fabric so that when it dries it stands a better chance of staying inside the fabric (instead of being worn off). I recommend using rubber gloves, because it will waterproof your hands. Once you're done (spray and rub in some extra in high-wear areas of your garment), throw it in the dryer for a few minutes on medium heat. This will both dry any remaining spray and help it take hold on the threads inside your garment.
Remember, this isn't magic spray - but it does work quite well when applied correctly. If your jacket is old and the factory-installed DWR coating is peeling off (or wasn't waterproof/water-resistant to begin with), all the Nikwax in the world wouldn't help. However, if all you're getting is a little seepage and your garments are still in good shape, grab a bottle of this and it'll make a huge difference.
Machine wash in an upright washer needs the whole bottle. Hand wash is easy and needs only a cap full.
Note: We wash the garments with Tech Wash.
