Re-proofing solution for Rapha performance apparel

Rapha Apparel Re-Proofer is a protection product designed to add water-repellency to all technical clothing and outerwear.

Based on an environmentally-friendly formulation, Rapha Apparel Re-Proofer restores lost water-repellency, allowing you to ride further while remaining dry. Ideally applied to damp garments, this product maintains breathability, and provides maximum protection without requiring heat activation.

Suitable for use with all waterproof and water-resistant materials.. Can also be used with garments with Gore-Tex® linings. For best results, use alongside Rapha Apparel Wash.


  • Restores water resistance
  • Protects DWR treatment
  • Prolongs product life
  • 200ml ℮ 6.76 fl. oz.


  • Use Rapha Apparel Wash to ensure garment is clean
  • Ensure all zips and velcro flaps are closed before applying
  • For best results apply to a damp garment
  • Shake bottle and spray evenly from a distance of 10 to 15cm
  • Dab away any excess moisture with a clean cloth
  • Tumble dry on medium heat until dry
  • Remove from drier, then hang for a further 15 minutes to ensure proofer activates fully

In the description of this product it states that it does not need heat activation. The answer to Mikey H question on this matter contradicts this. Can somebody please clarify . Thanks

Asked by: Devandy
Hi, the factory applied DWR is usually applied using technology which is reactivated by heat. Depending what re-proofer you use, the manufacture may state that it does not need heat curing to be effective; however we would say that it won’t do any harm to the re-proofer by heat treating it as well, and it will help revive any remaining DWR on your garment.

I don't have a tumble dryer. Will the proofer still work if I allow it to dry on a hanger?

Asked by: Mikey H
Hi, this is activated by heat so we suggest for best result to either tumble dry or give the items a quick dry with a hair dryer as long as it is in a mild setting, remembering heat will activate the product but in some cases too much heat will affect the garment.
