Can I re-wax my garment myself?

Our waxed products, for example our N1 Deck Jackets or C2 Vests, have 4 layers of wax. The fabrics are coated 3x on the outside and 1x on the inside. We use a paraffin based wax. This wax produces a fabric which has excellent water repellent properties and a dry feel. The fabrics are coated with wax before they are cut for sewing so that the coating can be applied evenly. Our fabrics have been so well impregnated with wax that re-waxing is not necessary. You can re-wax your garment using commercially available products such as Sno-Seal or Otter Wax. However, the final result is almost always patchy and uneven. That’s why we don’t recommend it.
