Great product.
I got this to apply to my Gerbing G3 gloves. Application was very easy and took very little time. Just dab it on and wipe off excess. Let it dry and your good to go. It worked as expected when I got stuck in a rain storm. A must if you have an item that needs to be protected from water.

A little hard to apply
I put this on heated gloves. I had to get help applying between the fingers. Would have been easier in a pump spray bottle with a extra sponge or cloth.

Have not tested in wet weather yet (as usual, I buy winter gear and the temperatures immediately shoot into the 70's and are sunny..)

Does not work as advertised.
This product did not work on my Gerbing gloves. The leather still soaked during the rain. Save your money for a different solution to waterproofing leather.

Bad Experience
I've never used NikWax before. After reading the reviews, I thought I would order a bottle with a new pair of winter gloves. I applied it to the new gloves which are fabric and leather (Alpinestars Drystars) and my regular leather gloves (Joe Rocket Sonics). I had my hands in the gloves when applying the NikWax to stretch them out. Shortly after applying the NikWak, my hands felt like they were a combination of dry and burning. The next three or four times I wore the Drystars, I got the same sensation. The back of my hands turn red and look like the skin has been dried out by extreme cold temperatures. I rode yesterday for the first time without having that problem. Another issue is that the applicator on the bottle is poorly designed and doesn't let you control the flow of the product very well. I haven't been in the rain yet (just wet fog), so I can't comment about its function. It could do a fantastic job of rain-proofing and I still wouldn't use it again or recommend it to anyone. I thought I was going to have to throw away both pairs of gloves.

Works fine.
Not as good as Gore-Tex liners but better than regular untreated leather. Makes gloves last longer.

Works as Advertised
I bought the Nixwax to waterproof 2 pairs of gloves. First coat was easy to put on but I bet I missed a spot here and there so I applied (or tried) to apply a second coat. No luck, the liquid just ran off.

Hope I do not need to find out.
Well, I proofed the gloves, but have not had any "opportunity" to ride in the rain to check how it works. I am sure the time will come, but this is like insurance... ya gotta have it, but hope to never use it.

NikWax Glove Proof
Nothing amazing about this product. Smells weird and is not absorbed easily by fabrics.
Hasn't been tested in serious rain yet.

Effective waterproofing
I bought this to use on my old gloves that stopped being waterproof after some year of commuting. This made them waterproof again, and actually even better because it stopped my gloves from becoming soggy after riding on the rain.

I also applied this on my brand new gloves I got and it also worked on that since water will slide.

I was looking for a pair of waterproof gloves, after reading numerous reviews it seemed no one was totally satisfied with their 100% waterproof purchases, I saw this and decided for $8 it was worth a go!
