    John told me to hang it up and spray a good water repellent on it, soak it till the liquid is running off.

    There are lots of good water repellants on the market. I sprayed my winter rescue gear every year .

    Scotchguard is an easy spray on. I get it at the hardware store. I find that a couple of thinner applications seems to last longer than a heavy soaking one. Good luck

    I've used the spray that Walmart sells in their Camping Dept. It's made for tents, but worked well on my hunting stuff. Inexpensive too.

    when I inquired with Mr. Storm about the same problem, in fact I was going to buy a new jacket he said spray the old one which I did and worked fine.

    I have had good success with Revivex Spray-on water repellent for outer wear (from GearAid), I used it on a Goretex jacket. Irv

    +1 for Revivex, but I've also used Scotchguard. Both will work fine for your application. Check Amazon or any Big Box store.

    Rob is correct in calling Leslie. She is a class act like her father and will do what it takes to correct any issues with any Storm product. Lyle Axt
