Waterproofing a wool cloak 6 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 12  
As I've an unexpected early pass for November's game (YAY!!) my mind has turned to some kit maintenance. Considering how shit the weather's likely to be, I was thinking about the best way to waterproof my wool cloak...

Has anyone ever tried using Barbour-style wax dressing on wool? I don't really mind the cloak looking a bit manky and weathered as it would suit both of my characters that wear it, buy don't want to ruin it.

Is this a bad idea???

Thanks Mike, though I'm going to Ember Nights....

I normally use NikWax spray, which is really good for light showers, but not a Autumn-on-the-Welsh-coast style drenching.

I think I'll test a small area and see what happens...
