Didn't work for me :-( Review by Mustangx3
Well, washed with the Tech Wash, didn't do much to clean the suit, washed again and again until finally seemed cleaner than it was. Did the TX.Direct wash-in thing, etc. In the rain, the suit doesn't bead water and continues to leak like there's no GoreTex at all... my Roadcrafter one piece is over 22 years old and has leaked BAD for the last 4 years. Sent it in for the waterproof zipper upgrade and still leaks at zippers (and most other areas too). Guess these things do have a service life after all. Appears mine is totally just worn out for waterproofness. Sad, it was a great suit for many years. Looks like I'll be buying some GoreTex hiking shells to wear UNDER the suit this winter to fend off the rains. Sigh... (Posted on 10/19/13)
Dry! Review by Illtyd
This is great stuff! I have been using the Roadcrafter one piece suit since the mid eighties and discovered this great slim about eleven years ago. A friend recommended it. He swore by it so I gave it a try. I didn’t believe him until I got into a heavy rain somewhere in Ohio on Interstate 90. I was in that rain for hours and not a drop got through the suit!

Zippers slide nice Review by Toby Z
I enjoy how the zippers slide smoother after washing with NikWax. (Posted on 3/18/12)
TX Direct Wash-in Repellent Review by Greg
Have been using it once per year since I got my Darien (5 years) and have never gotten wet. Wash once w/ detergent or Tech Wash, once w/ no detergent and then once w/ 4 capsful of TX Direct. (Posted on 3/15/12)
works great for me Review by PDX Rider
I've been wearing aero suits x 18 yrs (first roadcrafter, then Darien) for year-round riding in the pacific NW, so I know about rain and waterproofing. Every 2-3 years I use the TX direct (whole bottle) and I've never had a leak. (Posted on 10/22/11)

Aerostich Customer Service Review by customerservice
Steve, we dropped Scotchgard because it stopped selling. We think the reason it did is because Camp Dry, #330, a similar product we do sell, does as goood a job as Scotchguard but at a lower cost.

Worked For Me Review by David
My Darien got so dirty I decided to wash it. After running it through the machine a couple of times I decided to waterproof it in the sink applying the NIKWAX. You are supposed to use less hand washing so it lasts longer. You can feel the wax in the NIKWAX attaching to your hands and the suit. Also if you hand wash you don't have to rinse as much.
Anyway I was out in the rain this weekend and the Jacket did not leak a drop. Worked for me. (Posted on 7/27/10)
3M Scotchgard Review by Steve
The answer to this problem is 3M Scotchgard (Green can). Aerostitch used to sell this.

I've used it for over 10 years on my Darien coat and pants. Just returned from a 3500 mile trip with rain everyday. Works perfectly!! (Posted on 7/9/10)
I'm having the same issue... Review by Gregory Paik
I'm having the same issue, but notice that I didn't use the right recommended quantity (whole bottle). Did you use the whole bottle or just part of it?
