Addressing two common concerns for the long-term durability of tents, backpacks and other gear, Nikwax Tent and Gear Solarproof adds and restores water-repellency while delivering a measure of protection against harmful UV rays.



Unfortunately, we've all spent some uncomfortable time in the backcountry, bemoaning the effects of wet weather on our gear. Additionally, we've seen the damaging effects of repeatedly exposing gear to harmful UV rays. Thankfully, Nikwax Tent and Gear Solarproof addresses both issues in one restorative swoop!

By adding or renewing waterproofing properties and a measure of sun protection, Tent and Gear Solarproof prolongs the life of your tent or gear and enhances wet-weather performance. The water-repellency provided by Tent and Gear Solarproof makes it the ideal choice for treating nylon or synthetic tents, awnings, tarps, backpacks or camera bags.

Environmentally-friendly and non-hazardous, Nikwax Tent and Gear Solarproof is easy to apply and can even be applied directly to damp materials. Tent and Gear Solarproof is sold in a 17 oz bottle.

  • All-in-one waterproofing and UV proof for nonbreathable rainwear, tents, backpacks, duffel bags, gaiters and panniers

Likes: was very easy to put on. No big mess.

Dislikes: not sure as of yet how long it will last. will give update later on over time.

Likes: All of the Nikwax products are superior and should really be part of the process in putting away the tent after a season's use. And you might start with their wash and finish with this Solarproof.

Dislikes: One can't post without telling a story about how they did not like the product - so I will state, like always, the PRICE! Don't like to spend anything, but it is necessary to care for your tent and camping things - they last longer.

Reviewed by Ryan F. - July 13, 2010

Likes: This product was easy to apply. There was plenty of wax in the bottle to cover an entire 6 person tent.

Dislikes: This product has a smell to it that can cause some people to become sick. My wife was very sensitive to the smell so this should be applied outside.
