    This stuff works great! Made my tent water repellant once again. Don't forget to also buy seam sealer, that's what would cause most leakage in your tent.

    Haven't used it yet, but this is the cheapest price by far. I bought several bottles and plan on coating 2 large tents with it.

    I use this each year before the field season to vamp up my gear and extend its life. The bottle covers 2 tents and a few backpacks of mine (depends on much you spray one each product).

    This stuff was easy to use. Just wet down and spray. I only gave it a 4 star because when I went to use the product the spray nozzle did not work and I replaced it with one that did. But after using it on my tent it felt like it put a wax coating on it that could make it withstand the elements. I can not rate it on use because I have not had a chance to use it yet. Very simple to use!

    Nothing glamours. But if you want your gear to last longer, buy this product

    Buy more than you think. Works well. Make sure to follow the directions. Will use it again.

    I used this spray on a backpack and a large brimmed hat. They were not new and I washed them first with soap and water by hand. I then applied two coats to both, letting them dry between coats. At the end, they worked a bit better than before, but the water did not really bead up so much as sit on the surface and not get sucked in. I took them to Peru and was rained on almost every day, but the pack seemed to keep the water out fine, although the hat seemed pretty much unchanged from before treatment, ie, it got damp but not wet.

    this spray works great. i used it on my gazebo cover and it is doing the job! only time will tell about the uv protection. i also used it on my raincoat which wasn't so waterproof anymore. now it's like new. very happy with this product. i especially like that it is not an aerosol.

    If you have a MUST get Solar-Proof! This stuff is great. I usually treat my tent at the beginning of the year and then again halfway through. Living in the Pacific NW, we get a barrage of rain and sun...sometimes within the same hour. This stuff is great.
