Weather conditions like sunlight and strong rain as well as general abrasion can damage the rain fly on your tent. So it’s important to clean and check your tent regularly to extend its lifespan. If water no longer beads up on the outer surface, it’s time to reapply waterproofing.
We recommend Nikwax Tent & Gear Solar Spray. This waterproofing agent adds UV protection as well and extends the lifespan of the material.
Set up your tent in a dry place. Spray the outside of the tent with water from your spray bottle – enough to make it damp.
Then evenly spray the damp areas with your waterproofing spray.
Let the waterproofing soak in for about two minutes. Then wipe away any excess with a damp towel.
