The world's No. 1 supplier of environmentally friendly waterproofing solutions has just the thing for your tents this summer: Tent & Gear SolarProof spray-on protection.

Tent & Gear SolarProof doubles the life of tents and other gear by protecting it from UV damage. Synthetic fabrics used for tents and rucksacks are coated with a water repellent treatment. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light both destroys the water repellency and leads to a reduction in fabric tear strength, significantly shortening the lifespan of equipment. Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof comes without fluorocarbons or solvents so it's safe to use in the home and offers UV protection and water repellency so protecting from both rain and sun. In tests it's also proved to offer:

  • Durable water-rellency to the maximum testable standard;
  • UV protection that inhibits the reduction of fabric tear strength caused by ultraviolet rays so doubling the life of your tent;
  • An environmentally friendly, easy-to-use, safe, non-fluorocarbon, non-flammable waterproofing solution that can be applied to a wet or dry tent or pack.
