Recent Gear Care/Maintenance Product Reviews

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

Efferdent Cleanser

rated 5 of 5 stars Efferdent is the simplest, easiest way to clean hydration bladders, water bottles, and other hard to clean items that don't easily fit into a dishwasher. Drop in a tablet, and let it do the work! These easy to use tablets do an excellent job killing bacteria, and removing stubborn odors that eventually get into Nalgene bottles, hydration bladders, and the like. I can't remember where I found this tip, but it has been effectively keeping my stuff clean for about three years now. I still regularly… Full review

Nikwax Down Wash

rated 5 of 5 stars Have a down filled jacket or sleeping bag? A bit dirty or has it lost it loft? Look no further! If you want to take care and make your expensive gear stand the test of time, you can't do without this! I did the ultimate "no no." I washed my down jacket like it was a regular piece of gear. I know, I know! I looked at the directions on the jacket and I followed it. After it came of the wash (I used very little detergent...at least I had that going for me) and I dried it (once on regular) it came out… Full review
