Recent Gear Care/Maintenance Product Reviews

Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Just a scam, IMHO. Applied per instructions to a 3-person tent fly with zero effect. Water immediately passes through the fly. It's a waste of money on a lame claim from this company. I'm done buying any Nikwax products. I've moved to McNett's Gear Aid line and they are the shizzzz!  Full review

Nikwax Down Wash

rated 3 of 5 stars It works to clean down bags and garments safely, but is more costly than Gear Aid Revivex. Tried it and find it's effective to clean, but at three to four times the cost of Gear Aid ReviveX Pro Cleaner. Full review

Gear Aid ReviveX Pro Cleaner

rated 5 of 5 stars Best bang for the buck. Previously, I've used Nikwax for down and thought I'd try McNett's Gear Aid. I won't be using Nikwax any longer and here's why: GA goes waaay farther, like about four to eight times what NW does making it that much less cost. Having used the 3-4 ozs. of Nikwax that's recommended for a down bag and finding that it does the job fine, I tried Gear Aid. They say it's concentrated four times more and using it made a believer of me. Literally, 1.5 ozs. cleans a down sleeping bag,… Full review

Gear Aid Tenacious Tape Fabric Repair Tape

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the best. I've used this to repair tears and holes in my $100 bicycle seat, Cordura panniers, backpack, down jacket; all with total success and no failure. Even the adhesive is impervious to water. No better product is available. I highly recommend it for any fabric repair you want to be permanent. You won't get it off after a few months. Full review

Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof

rated 0.5 of 5 stars The only thing as effective as Nixwax Suede is doing absolutely nothing. Applied the first time, no effect. Water absorbed as usual.  Applied the second time, no effect. Water absorbed as usual.  This product has ZERO waterproofing qualities.  Full review

Otter Wax Fabric Wax

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This product works as advertised. It will waterproof new fabric, will coat existing waxed garments, will seal seams and dreams. Perfect and affordable for the gear conscious enthusiast who thinks gear longevity is a personal choice. This type of product has been with us since the Neolithic epoch and gladly these folk provide the best and affordable product. Full review

DryGuy Force Dry Shoe & Glove Dryer

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Combining low heat with air movement speeds drying greatly. Packs down reasonably small when not in use. The DryGuy Force Dry boot and glove dryer is a vast improvement over the air only boot dryer I have been using for the last 25 years. By introducing 105-degree heat along with air flow the Force Dry has cut my boot drying time in half. The heated air does a much more thorough job of fully drying boots, shoes, and gloves without causing any damage. By getting my equipment fully dry I no longer… Full review

Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP

rated 5 of 5 stars Outstanding performance. Gives new life to old leather. I'm really impressed with this stuff. I've been wearing leather work boots for decades now. They get a lot of abuse including drops of molten metal, slogging through mud, water and animal crap, lots of abrasion and impact, etc. Usually the leather starts to deteriorate after 12-18 months.  Now, I clean my boots really well with a saddle soap and then apply LP every six months or so. My current pair of work boots are three years old and going… Full review

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
