Gear Aid SilFix Sil-Nylon Repair Kit

rated 5 of 5 stars Great repair kit for fixing holes and tears in sil-nylon material used by many manufactures of light weight backpacks and tents. As I've been adding lighter weight gear to my backpacking and hiking arsenal, I've run across the complications of making those choices.  That being,  these lighter weight packs and tents using sil-nylon materials are not as durable as their heavier weight counterparts.  My first purchase was the Marmot Kompressor Summit, which is a light weight 28L day pack which uses… Full review

Gear Aid ReviveX Leather Gel Water Repellent & Conditioner

rated 1 of 5 stars This product simply does not work. $12 at Sports Authority and an entire bottle of it did NOTHING to make a hat rain repellant. Completely worthless product (except it costs $12). There are other less expensive brands that probably DO work. This product does not work. Sprayed the product on a fur felt hat and let it dry. The rain soaked the hat. Prima facie that the product does not work. The can says it works on jackets, hats, shoes, waders, tents, and packs. Maybe you need to use five or six cans… Full review

McNett MiraZyme Odor Eliminator

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is a product that you can spray on your clothes to remove odors. Let's face it, there are just some fabrics that hold onto the smell of perspiration. As a triathlete I have several synthetic technical fabric shirts and even after washing them, they still smell. I have tried a variety of special detergents: Penguin Wash, Win, Sport Suds, and a few others. They do better than regular detergent, but there are always a few shirts that still reek even after multiple washes. So I tried the Mirazyme. Full review

Atsko Sno-Seal

rated 5 of 5 stars For chrome-tanned boots, I've never found anything better to keep the water out. It's hard to beat LoneStranger's review of Sno-Seal! I've only used it on my hiking and climbing boots, so I can't testify to its use on belts and jackets. If it's as good on these other applications as it is on boots, It must be greater than I even thought. I started using Sno-Seal in the mid '60s when I got into serious mountaineering — this really was the only thing available besides silicone liquids which were… Full review

Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof

rated 5 of 5 stars Nice for backpack waterproofing and tent. Full review

Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof

rated 5 of 5 stars A good tent is not cheap, take care of your investment! Treated my tent fly and tent after one season of use. It was very easy to apply, just spray it on your tent and tent fly and wipe off access. If you don't wipe if off it leaves some residue. Took my tent out backpacking in Colorado over Memorial Weekend after using this product. We encountered rain, thunderstorms, hail, and everything else mother nature could throw at us at 10,000 ft and we did not have a drop of water in our tent.  I am thouroughly… Full review

Gear Aid Tent Sure Tent Floor Sealant

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Tested in the Colorado backcountry in "not-so-pleasant" weather. This is a great product that does what it claims.  I would recommend application before each season.  Backpacking gear and clothing is expensive and I'm sure no one wants to get it wet, especially inside your tent. I applied the floor sealant to my Mountain Hardware Light Wedge 3 at the beginning of the season.  Application of the product was easy, it didn't smell too bad, and it dried quickly. I would definitely make sure the… Full review

Atsko Sno-Seal

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Beeswax based leather treatment. Waterproofs and conditions leather. Great for boots, motorcycle leathers and other gear exposed to the elements. Sno-Seal has been my go-to leather treatment for decades primarily on leather boots and motorcycle jackets.  The beeswax based product is listed by Atsko as suitable for waxed cotton and for tent seams, but I have never used it for those purposes. In my experience the product is best applied to warm leather as heat softens the wax and makes it easier… Full review

Gear Aid Outdoor Sewing Kit

rated 5 of 5 stars First aid for your outdoor gear. Gear Aid Outdoor Sewing Kit is a must-have on your outdoor adventure! It is first aid for your outdoor gear. While out in the field you never know what can happen, thanks to the elements changing at anytime. I got a tear in my tent and to me that is a difference between being safe and secure to being cold and miserable. This kit is great for tears in tents, sleeping bags, clothes and other fabrics that you might need to mend on your adventure. I would highly suggest… Full review
