I cannot rate this product yet other then to say that the application was easy. I am a sailer and have a set of Gill foul weather gear that I applied the product to. I will be participating as crew in the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race this October and also be sailing back to Connecticut in open water afterwards.
This will be the real test of the products water proofing ability without a doubt.

Spray on everything that you want to stay dry! Spray a plain old windbreaker inside and out and let it dry in the sun. Follow the directions and you will have a great hiking jacket, that you can re-spray as needed. This will work for a light to moderate rain lasting about an hour. After that the fibers of the windbreaker will start to absorb water. But hey, you didn't have to spend any more $$ on goretex! Plus, the large bottle yields lots of sprays for other water repellent gear!

make sure you peel off the back double layer and read the instruction underneath. so far it seems to work well. water beads nicely on my jacket which previously soaks through immediately. will have to see how long the coating last. how it handles UV. but you have to spray a lot of it. this whole bottle will treat 3-4 pieces of cloth I think.

I applied this solution to a Marmot jacket I had that was not that waterproof. Water now beads on the jacket and I have at least doubled its waterproofness. In the application process the solution did run off rather easily since it is a water based product. I hung my jacket from a hanger and sprayed it down well. There were no specific instructions, that I could find, as to how to apply it. I used over a half a bottle on one extra large jacket. In any event, the jacket is now much more waterproof and useful to me.
