Taking the right product care steps for your outdoor clothing, footwear and equipment will naturally prolong the life of your items, thereby ensuring best performance. And, naturally, when spending a considerable amount of money on walking boots, rucksacks, shooting jackets or wellies, it’s really important to make sure they perform well for you and last for a long period of time. This is both our aim and your aim!


So, to help with maintaining the overall performance of your country clothing, footwear and equipment, we have created a range of Product Care Guides, covering topics such as, how to maintain a pair of Brogue shoes or how to use Nikwax products to re-proof clothing, footwear and equipment.

Clothing Product Care

With so many different product care items available on the market from top quality brands such as Nikwax, Granger and Kiwi, sometimes it can be confusing on which is the best solution to improve the performance of your gear. Do you carefully consider which products you should use to get the best results? For example, will NikwaxTX Direct re-proof a ‘Down’ filled Jacket? Can a tweed jacket be washed?

Footwear Product Care

Can wellington boots be treated to prevent the rubber from drying out? Or, what’s the best way to re-proof a pair of Grisport boots? There’s nothing worse than the leather on your walking bootscracking and splitting, resulting in wet feet, or perhaps your waterproof and breathable ‘over-trousers’ being wetter on the inside rather than on the outside! All of these may be typical questions that you need answers to!
