    Swanndri.

    I have a Skipper Shirt which I think is really good, it has good breathability and insulative properties due to it being made of pure wool. But find it is not 100% waterproof.

    So can I treat it with a Nikwax or something similar. ?

    Rgds, Buck.

    PS. I am also now thinking of purchsing an Original Hooded Bushirt or Mosgiel

    ZipFront Bushirt. your veiws would be appreciated !!
