My only worry is the coat is grubby on the sleeves and I am not sure its totally waterproof on the seams. We stopped in a a well known outdoor store the other day to do a recce and I found a good quality one. Then hurriedly let go, and told my husband to step well back - "don't touch" I hissed looking round for any shop assistants. "Why?" "Its £199.95!!" "Well, your not having that one. This one is £80 but I think you old one is better quality." he replied. "I'm just not sure its as waterproof as it was" I was explaining when a nearby customer suggested re-proofing like her friend did. She was called over the friend and gave us some hints about doing it.
We brought some half price waterproofing on the way out. Next sunny period in the weather I will have a go. It was £7. So could be a lot cheaper that a new coat.
Has anyone tried to do this?
