    Since we’re soon going to be in “nice” weather, I wanted to post about a waterproofing spray. I sprayed it recently on my nylon hooded FedEx parka and it seemed like it worked very well.

    It’s called Silicone Water Guard, made by Atsko, the company that makes Sno Seal. They also make an “extreme” version, but I don’t think it’s much better.

    Thanks for tip. I also keep my pocket pens in a condom to stop the rain from getting to them.

    In, it’s a smart idea to practice safe penmanship.

    Can that stuff be sprayed directly on your hog?.....thereby potentially eliminating the need for condoms entirely?

    NIX wax, you'll thank me later. Also can be washed into most clothing, including our "waterproof" hah rain coats...

    I’ve used the Nik wash in stuff on my parka and I found this spray to be far superior. The Nik in a tube is pretty good for boots, though I think Sno Seal or Obenauf’s work better.

    Who needs condoms when you enter the correct entrance.

    yes thats the stuff... sorry I use to swear by it, but since it hasn't rained or snowed here in 4 years I forgot, but it sits above my washing machine.

    Ok I exaggerated, but any weather is sporadic...also had to google Atacama Desert, looks like a nice place we need to build a call center there, cheap real estate.

    I have had good results with the KIWI Camp Dry Heavy Duty Water Repellent (Silicone).

    I use it on the 100% nylon FedEx parkas and on my nylon rain gear (not FedEx) for 3 season rains on the ramp.

    Works great, but need to reapply after detergent washing.

    When I run out I will try the Atsko.

    Just for those times when I'm not sure if you brushed your teeth.

    I first used Kiwi, but didn’t think it lasted very long.

    If the product is truly "legit" why would you have to reapply it?

    Because any waterproofing product wears off over time unless what you apply it to is waterproof at the molecular level, like rubber.
