HOW TO TEST A GARMENT'S WATERPROOFING
Before heading out on a new adventure, it’s always a good idea to check if your waterproof garment still repels water or if it’s in need of reproofing.
Here's how easily that is done:
1. Lay your jacket on a table or flat surface.
2. Spray the jacket with water, using one of those water spray bottles for plants.
3. If the water beads up like dew drops, and rolls off the garment, then your jacket is still waterproof and ready to go.
4. If the water is absorbed into the fabric, the water repellents needs reactivated or even reproofed.
