My Gore-Tex raincoat doesnt seem to be keeping me dry anymore. Any way to fix it?
Dirt and pollution, plus normal wear and tear, can wreak havoc with the top layer of a Gore-Tex shell. The best way to restore its effectiveness is to wash and rinse your jacket, then run it through the dryer. The wash removes contaminants from the surface, while the dryers heat actually reactivates the waterproofing. Another option: Apply a restoration treatment such as ReviveX Spray-On Water Repellent for Outerwear, $9, prolitegear.com.
