So it is about time to waterproof my tent again.  I have used Nikwax Tent and Gear Solarproof in the past.  Was wondering what everyone else uses? 

What do you use for your jackets as well?  I just bought some Nikwax that is a wash-in for my jackets... not sure how well it will work ~ as I have used the spray-on in pervious years.

Any suggestions/ideas?

I've honestly never actually waterproofed my tent...guess I'm too much of a fair-weather backpacker! 

We generally use the Nikwax for our raincoats once a year -- it works ok, but I think it wears out after a few trips.  I would love to find a product that gives that new-jacket feel (nice and crisp and great at protecting from the rain), but haven't found one yet.

me neither.....  I suppose that is why I am asking everyone   :)

I used the Nikwax wash-in waterproofing stuff last night (fair warning, it stinks when in the machine) on my jackets and sleeping bags.  Ironically and thankfully, it did not rain today.  I am sure it won't be long before I can tell you first hand how well the stuff works/does not work, as the "rains are a commin" later this week.

I am going to wait on the tent for a little warmer weather.....he-he-he ~ of course, that may not be until May.  geezzz.

I found these two water sealants.  Anyone have any previous experience with them?


This one looks like it would be good for tent floors:

and this one looks like it might work well on silnylon and gortex:

 i've used the second one MANY times it works grat but it somtimes looks like there is dandruff all over your tent. Some one told me once to do the sealing of the fabric in a humid room and it works better (like a bathroom after a shower) im not sure on the valididty but i might try it in the comming months... right now im out iglooing!

Hey Rexryman, so are you actually iglooing?  That is "cool". 
Always wanted to make one, however, was never that sure of myself to sleep in one that I had made.... I can just see it crashing down on top of me.  I suppose that would not happen as the snow would freeze and probably become more solid as the temperatures dropped.  Where are you "iglooing" at?
