Polar Proof

Easy-to-use, safe, high-performance waterproofing for fleece. Adds Durable Water Repellency; reducing weight gain and maintaining breathability and insulation of fleece in wet weather.

Great for waterproofing:

  • Fleece items such as jackets, trousers, hats and gloves

All Nikwax packaging is made from 100% recycled plastic and is recyclable (#2 plastic) in Australia.


How Nikwax Polar Proof® protects.

Nikwax Polar Proof® leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability and optimising performance in wet weather. It inhibits pilling of fleece fabrics, prolonging the life of gear.

Nikwax Polar Proof® is easy and quick to apply in a washing machine and ensures that the treatment goes right through the garment. The highly Durable Water Repellency (DWR) of Nikwax Polar Proof® develops on air drying. Therefore, the need for tumble drying is removed, saving energy.
