Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works so much better then I expected I have a Nitro bass boat with a full cover. I used to pump so much water out of the bilge when I went to fish I thought it was taking on water. Sprayed my cover with this product and even after a big storm the boat and bilge were dry. What more can I say. September 28, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by This doesn't work I bought a spray bottle,22 oz this past Friday.I sprayed my bow cover on my 18' boat.I put two coats on it and it dried between coats.I sprayed a little water on it after it dried a day.I was happy it beaded the water.That was Saturday.Last night we had rain.I just looked at it and the water soaked in the material and there is a big puddle of water in my bow cover.It didn't even last three days.I had the cover cleaned good before spraying the cover.Product didn't work at all for me.Waste of money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wasted time & money Need to return it, ,application was not what I needed September 2, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Horse blanket waterproofing I used this product on a 1-year old "waterproof" turnout sheet that had lost its repellancy. It was very easy to apply with a standard garden sprayer and dried quickly. I tested a portion of the sheet and found it wasn't totally proofed, so did a second coat. So far, so good after 3 weeks and two heavy rainstorms. December 5, 2012

I used about 1/2 gallon on my mooring cover for my 23' boat. A lot will depend on how heavy (or light) it is applied. I used a 32 fl oz sprayer bottle to apply.

A: 
Yes, the canvas can breathe after the waterproofing is dry. Using Waterproofing on jackets and horse blankets is fine. Just make sure the jacket or blanket is dry before exposure to people or horses.

I like to retreat my 100 MPH Coat/Bibs every few years. I believe you used to sell a camp dry product to do that last time I needed it. Is this the replacement for that product? Will this work for my application?

A: 
As far as use on rain suits - if the suits are rubber or vinyl, they normally do not need to be waterproofed. It is only fabric rain suits that would benefit from being waterproofed.

I have found a typical adjustable two to three gallon sprayer very easy and much less exhausting than one of those one quart hand sprayer.

The description says it is good for tents. Some waterproofing I have seen is for Cotton tents, but will not work on nylon. Is this suggested for nylon tents?

I used it on a one man chair blind I bought from BassPro and it does very well for that. I have also used it for my boat cover, but that is made out of a cotton base material I think.

Yes, but in this case we advise customers to first test a small amount of the product in an inconspicuous area before treating the entire area.

Details: 
I have a very large nylon tent, and it is not efficient to spray with the 1 inch spray pattern of a can repellant. Is this material thin enough to spray through a cup gun (ie, like you use to paint cars) ? I have successfully sprayed material as thick as latex housepaint with a little adjustment. Otherwise, what application method is recommended?

A: 
Yes it is thin enough but the volume you need to spray seems a bit tedious for the small cup volume.
