    My husband says his much loved waterproofs are now still waterproof but he is finding that the water is now lying on the fabric rather than running off and making him feel cold.
    Any ideas? Do we need to reproof? If so how?

    Many thanks.

      Found the same. Sent it back to gg and they sent it back saying they re – coated it. Didn’t do much at all really.

      So I purchased nikwax spray and I’m gonna see how that does.

      Il keep the thread posted.

    Used my GG last weekend, really persistent rain throughout the round, got back to the clubhouse removed the trousers and my trouser around the crotch area and knee caps were really wet. The suit is not that old. My wife always follows the washing instructions. The jacket is perfect.

      Hi Adrian,

      Thank you for your comment,

      The best advice I can give you is too send the trousers back to Galvin Green. They’ll re-wash the trousers and if deemed faulty will replace for you under their warranty guidelines!
