Something that just might help someone save a heap of money.
Have you ever had your Gore-Tex/ breathable jacket or waders start leaking
and you were told by the shop and ‘experts’ to buy another set of waders etc as this is the only way to have a non leaking set of waders etc as they are worn out.
Well news for you, as it was news to me sometime ago !
I had the problem with my waders and thought, your have done miles with these, its fair enough they are old enough and then by chance we walked past a Mountain Design shop. Everything changed from there on, my waders are as good as new today thanks to the super helpful and knowledgeable staff at Mountain Design.
The staff suggested I use a waterproofer for Gore-Tex.
I didn’t think there was such a product on Earth to reproof a Gore-Tex fabric,
Well guys and girls for about$30.00 you can buy 2 bottles for waterproofer designed for breathable fabrics.
This product is TOKO Eco Proof Textile.
We now carry a couple of the spray bottles when away fishing all the time for the just in case situation.
I would like to thank Mountain Designs for having staff that know their product range (and its a pity more shops didn’t follow MD’s lead in this staff case).
I have heard people crying that their waders and boots only lasted a could of seasons. Then maybe you could take a look at Greys G Series of waders and Boots. I have had mine for roughly 200 days PLUS of use and so far the boots are still what could be classed as almost new (amazing !) the waders well worn and just starting to weep around the sowen seam in two small areas. Spray with TOKO and they are as good as new.
The advantage of the G Series is that they are light weight, and thus ideal for most Australia summer conditions.
AND cheaper than most waders and Boots.
