Cheapest I can see online from a main retailer by a long margin. The twin packs are at around £19+ on eBay

Previous threads have offered mixed comments on performance - I have never had an issue. A low heat tumble dry after the proofing wash is the key I think. Link to manufacturers instructions (more detailed than the instructions on the bottle) in below link

Used this stuff on a jacket recently and has restored it's waterproofing.

Excellent product and excellent price for the volume you get.

Great stuff. Used it recently on a goretex jacket and water beads off like new.
The tech wash is just liquid soap. So usually cheaper just to buy the Dri-pak liquid soap flakes.
Though maybe a good deal for the TX Direct.

Recently bought some of their tent re-proofer and spent several hours applying.
Went camping, it rained, tent leaked. Tent is now in the bin.
