Nikwax Softshell DUO-Pack Cleaner and Waterproofing is all you need to maintain the performance of your technical softshell outerwear. Contains two 10oz bottles.
Cleans Your Gear
Your waterproof clothing and equipment could be soaking up water because the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) has been compromised by dirt, or because it has been cleaned with a conventional laundry detergent. Dirt attracts water and household detergents leave water attracting (hydrophilic) residues, leading to fabric "wetting out" in wet or damp conditions.
Waterproofs Your Gear
Your garment could be soaking up water just because it is dirty. Once the garment has been cleaned, you will need to repair the DWR, using Nikwax waterproofing products.
Nikwax is waterbased, non-flammable, contains no harmful volatile organic compounds, and is fluorocarbon free.
Aids the Breathability of Your Gear
Waterproof fabric must allow moisture vapor to pass through it, or 'breathe', otherwise out sweat cannot evaporate, causing us to overhear and get wet from condensation. Nikwax products waterproof without sealing fabric to maintain that breathability.

With this approach, these bottles allowed for 3 cycles each, thus 6 jackets. The outcome is better than I expected. The Tech Wash somehow cleaned them better than my regular detergent and in combination with the Soft Shell Proof revitalized the color and fabric of all the jackets I washed (ski, running, fall, etc. jackets). It has not rained yet since I did all that, but I tested the water resistance by splashing them with water and it beaded up immediately. Nothing went through the fabric.
This is not a cheap a product, but it does what it claims and it does so very well. My jackets were investments for me and I plan on doing this at least once a year.
Long story short, both jackets came out looking and smelling like new, and with water beading up on them rather than soaking in. I will buy again.
The only caveat is these 2 jackets used half the bottle of tech wash and the entire bottle of softshell. They were both waist length 2x, so plan accordingly. One bottle doesn't go very far. I definitely could not squeeze in a third item.
UPDATE: I treated 2 jackets at the same time, and started my review after testing just one jacket. I've since had a chance to test the second (polyester shell) , and NikWax GREATLY improved the water resistance/shedding of that jacket.
So there's purposes for which it's better than others.
