Recent Gear Care/Maintenance Product Reviews

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

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
