303 Aerospace Protectant

rated 5 of 5 stars I began using 303 a couple of years ago on my kayaks after it was recommended by a friend. It does bring new life back to an older kayak and I believe improves their glide and tracking. It's worth the price, but I agree with the other buyers, purchase it in larger quantities and it goes a long way. I originally purchased a small bottle to try and after seeing the results now I purchase it by the gallon and refill the small spray bottle to use it.  Full review

303 Aerospace Protectant

rated 5 of 5 stars The best protection available for rubber and plastic. Formula 303 Protectant was originally developed by NASA for use on the Space Shuttle. It looks like milk and has a very slight smell that reminds me of Elmer's glue. It can be quite expensive if you purchase it in the small spray bottles, but is quite reasonably priced by the gallon. It's advertised as sunscreen for your plastic, and I can attest to its effectiveness. Used regularly it will keep your plastic and rubber products free of sun damage… Full review

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

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

Berkeley Premium Cork Grease

rated 5 of 5 stars Ever been desperate to get a zipper open on a backpack, tent, or clothing item and it sticks ... even jams shut? Ever have physical connector/connection problems with outing gear? Brings up a memory or two for some of us? I've tried different things over the years, and the best most permanent fix I've found is the cork grease used for lubricating critical moving parts on brass and woodwind musical instruments. Get it at any music store or online. Any one else have trouble with Zippers, plastic or… Full review

Gear Aid MiraZyme Odor Eliminator

rated 5 of 5 stars McNett Gear Aid Mirazyme is a concentrated formula which is designed to remove odor associated with mold, mildew, bacteria, and algae from clothing and gear. Just mix with water. This stuff is great for sleeping bags, clothing, wetsuits, the interior of your vehicle, the armpits of your favorite synthetic running shirt that seem to develop a permanent stink, your shoes, football/hockey pads or other gear/clothing which is subject to hard use. I use a capful or two in a spray bottle with 4 to 6 ounces… 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

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
