Rust-Oleum NeverWet Boot & Shoe Water Repelling Treatment

rated 4 of 5 stars I visit hill stations very frequently and before I visited Rishikesh in May 2017 I used NeverWet boot and shoe spray for my sports shoes! Results were really interesting! I visit hill station very frequently! I visited many north hilly stations in India; Rishikesh, Triund in Himachal Pradesh, Kashmir, and many others. I also love water sports. Last time I visited Rishikesh (in May) for river rafting but before visiting I was searching for waterproofing shoes and luckily came across NeverWet shoe… Full review

Urban Armor Gear Outback Phone Case

rated 5 of 5 stars A bombproof cell phone case with superior grip. If you're like me and have started¬†using your smartphone for navigation then you know you need a good case for protection while tramping through the wilderness. I use an Urban Armor Gear case for my Motorola Moto Z phone. Made of lightweight impact resistant rubber the case meets military grade drop-test standards. The fit is perfect, with oversized buttons for on/off and volume. The back offers excellent grip provided by a large section of cross… Full review

Scrubba Wash Bag

rated 5 of 5 stars The easy way to wash your clothes without a washing machine. The Scrubba Wash Bag is a rare thing, a real innovation, not just a variation on a well-worn idea. Basically, the Scrubba lets you wash your clothes without a washing machine or having to hand wash over a tub or in a stream. It gets better results than hand washing and with a lot less effort. While only the most obsessive washers are likely to take a Scrubba on a multi-day hike, it is great for base camp, hut, or vehicle based day hiking… Full review

Coghlan's Water-Based Seam Seal

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Works well. I have used this with success on nylon tent floor perimeter seams and rainfly seam.¬† Neither were reinforced with tape and this has lasted over 8 years, 8-16 days, four seasons per year without reapplication. I have just applied to the opposite side of taped seams of a new tent. This works well as it saturates the thread and seals the stitched holes. This comes with a push to open top with brush attached. Application is easy: shake before use, invert, lightly squeeze bottle to saturate… Full review

Gear Aid Seam Grip

rated 1 of 5 stars Don't waste time or money. Tried repairing the seams on a hood neck shoulders on Goretex Extrem Berghaus Paclite Don't stick well the seams curl up like old corn beef, when applied. When cured it peels off like dead skin. Basically my Berghaus Extrem Paclite Jacket had some seams coming away. After searching and reading reviews, I thought sod it give it a go. When applying seam grip it soaks into the seams, making them curl up, so you have to sit there and keep pushing edges down to stick, best… Full review

Gear Aid Tenacious Tape Fabric Repair Tape

rated 4 of 5 stars A strong and durable patch kit for nylons, fabrics, and more! I first purchased this tape to apply it to a pair of Gore-Tex rain pants from North Face. They had caught an ember from a campfire and had a hole the size of a dime. Fearful of catching something on the hole and making it worse, I started researching options to make the fix. I first considered traditional duct tape, but decided that it would leave a residue and not be much of a permanent seal as I would have liked as well as left residue. Full review

Nikwax Conditioner for Leather

NEVER USE ON SUEDE!!! My friend tried to weather protect my brand new 100$ Uggs and completely ruined them. They are now blotchy and went from a light brown to a dark brown, almost black. Very very very very upset. In short, read the directions and never use this stuff on suede or you'll ruin anything it touches!! My experience was poor, however it was used incorrectly. Just want to let people know if anyone does try to use it on suede. Full review

Sea to Summit Mat Repair Kit

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised by this product. Needed to make an emergency repair to my rain jacket a Marmot Oracle Jacket. Only thing the store had was this kit for sleeping pads. I had backed into a lantern and burned a quarter size hole in it dead center of my shoulder blades on a previous outing. The kit came with four round 1 1/4-inch and four 2-inch square patches. What I did was put a square one on the inside of the jacket and a round one on the outside effectively glueing them together in case they… Full review

Nikwax TX.Direct Wash-In

rated 4.5 of 5 stars After pretty much destroying two rain jackets by not waterproofing them often enough and then running them through a normal wash, I've been able to re-waterproof them almost perfectly with the Nikwax Direct Wash-In. Fast and easy, and good at fixing my prior neglect! :-) As noted above, I pretty much managed to destroy two rain jackets by neglecting them and running them through the normal wash a few times. Of course, I only discovered my mistake after becoming thoroughly soaked in a big rainstorm,… Full review
