It seems to me that the main question is "how long does it last?"

I my experience even scotch guard seem very impressive shortly after it is applied to an item, take that item into pouring rain for an hour or so and it looks like nothing was ever done to it.

It's very expensive, unless it lasts for a long time and works on dirty/dusty objects, it's essentially a waste of money.

I just sprayed the underside of my front fender. I'm going to go get dirty tomorrow. I should have a video with results in a day or two.

Gave it a try today on some of my crashed/retired gloves...for science.




It appears that it doesn't work all that well on anything that repels the base coat, and the coating itself is much less resistant to mechanical abrasion unlike some other water repellents.

The coating basically immediately flaked off the leather in the above pictures, and it didn't fare too much better on the nylon part of the prosummer gloves.

So, 303 fabric guard it is.

After coating my cotton wide brim hat, i got the same results rough finish milky look to it but I held it under the faucet and the water just rolled off that was pretty cool. I will not be coating my RevIt Off track jacket which was the plan, I may try it on my old tour master pants which leak pretty bad.

pretty telling review travis. i think the underside of a bike is a good place for this stuff, as well as some of the key areas where mud buildup would pose a problem.

If it works as advertised, this stuff is amazing:

I can see a lot of applications on bikes: windscreens, visors, jackets/pants/gloves, crushed-velvet Saddlemen seats, etc. I'm ordering a can now.

Not windscreens and visors. Research here in the equipment forum before you start spraying it at will. Lots of info there.

It will cloud any surfaces (except white) due to its coating.. Not safe to do so i guess. But very interesting product. Bought mine and waiting for its arrival here and still thinking what would be of use on a motorcycle.

My new white Converse sneakers will be the first to be experimented on definitely

I am going to be very careful with mine and what I spray it on. I will try some electronics and maybe a pair of boots and gloves.

Sorry folks. I have only the Boxer/BMW GS portion of this site bookmarked, keep forgetting there's a lot more here than I normally call up.
Yeah, it looks like it dulls colors and flakes off certain surfaces; I'll read thru this thread and figure out what I can actually use it for (I swung by my local Home Depot and they had it in stock).
