Fabric Water Repellent

Fabric Water Repellent that works is hard to come by. We know how damp and miserable poorly performing rain gear will leave you. Consequently, our state of the art weatherproofing formulation keeps you dry longer bar none. First, our base of natural oils and waxes seep into your fabric. Second, TYLOL binds with both synthetic and natural fibers for a impenetrable barrier against the elements. Finally, you will never need to run your article through the wash again. Just brush off dirt and debris and occasionally spot clean areas of high grime buildup. For more lighter gear and general proofing maintenance, check out our Fabric Weatherproofing Bar. Also, check out a great article about the process of weatherproofing on Instructables.

Fabric water repellent lowdown

  • Reproof or apply durable waterproofing to your work gear – Our hot wax fabric water repellent is easily brushed onto your canvas denim or blended work gear. It soaks into the fibers for years of rugged protection.
  • Our Fabric Dressing is formulated to take abuse – We have tested our formulation in the harshest of environments, from wrenching on heavy machinery to forestry work. Our proprietary mixture can take abuse and keep on going.
  • Natural oils, beeswax & pine tar – We source all our ingredients locally in Pennsylvania. We work with the men and women harvesting honeycomb and extracting natural oils for our fabric wax. These products are pure and great care goes into every product we produce.
  • Non toxic – There are toxic chemicals used to process and render commercial off the shelf oil and wax products. We forego unnecessary processing with careful temperature and agitation control. We put in the time to make this product right and safe to wear. As always, we are PFAS free.
  • Proudly made in Pennsylvania USA – Our operation is proudly based in Pennsylvania. We source everything from Pine tar to our packaging locally, supporting the local economy.
  • Impervious to the elements – Beeswax and natural oils soak into fabric, totally saturating the material, leaving a wet sheen that is impervious to dirt, mud and rain. This wax is great for rubbing into denim work gear, bags and most synthetic cotton blends for extra protection.

  1. Jim Tagert

    Works well on my baseball glove. It keeps the leather soft and the water out.

  2. Patty Spall

    Winning 😉

  3. Luca Carver

    Barbour is overrated. They are just a brand these days, it’s really obvious when their thornproof dressing feels like grease and waterproofs about as well. Hawk Tools is killin’ it.

  4. Henry Chan

    The application takes a little while but you get used to it. The end result is well worth the wait and it lasts for years. Impressed is an understatement.

  5. Tony Andre

    Good job Hawk Tools team! Keep it up.

  6. Michael Hill

    The best waterproofing wax available.

  7. Ted Smith

    One year update – Looks fantastic, I only touched up an elbow after some late repelling antics scuffed it something nasty. A hair dryer cleaned it up right away without needing any more wax.

  8. Joe Constance

    My Jacket looks amazing. Thanks for the super fast shipment and extra goodies. Oh by the way, a scraper would have helped with the waxing in seams and pockets. All in all, it looks great and works even better.

  9. Richard M.

    Product worked as described and was easy to apply

  10. Curt James

    Really easy to apply
