    Nobody likes a leaky motorbike jacket.

    Surely then, everyone should like a product which claims to restore the waterproofing in your jacket?

    The thing is, such products have a patchy history and often when a jacket begins to leak, people see that as the first sign that they need to start flicking through the various bike clothing websites and budgeting for new gear at the local dealer.

    We all enjoy looking through the new kit that the likes of Alpinestars et al bring out year on year, but if you ride daily and find yourself going through jackets or trousers as often as you do brake pads, then the cost is surely going to start adding up.

    This is where Nikwax comes in. Nikwax is a British company that make a range of products for outdoor enthusiasts and two of those products are particularly useful for motorcycle owners.

    Nikwax Tech Wash and TX Direct are two products which, when combined, clean your gear and revitalise the waterproofing built in them from the factory.

    It might sound a little far-fetched, but waterproofing technology -- beyond just putting a one-piece impregnable plastic suit over yourself and drowning in your own sweat -- has been with us for decades.
