Carharrt Waterproofing

7 posts in this topic

That Rocky Gore-Tex spray works good. I spray it on boots, hunting pants and my Carharrts. You can get it at Gander Mtn., Fleet-Farm, or any sporting goods store. Comes in spray can.

Anyone spray their bibs with campdry or anything else?Any other ideas?I have a pair of extremes that are three years old.It seems like they are letting a little more water through than in the past.

Go to a Military Surplus Store and buy the stuff that is listed for use on the inside lable on a Field Jacket or other outerware. It works great. I have used the other commercial products and always follow the directions. I always apply several coats over the course of several days and have been very happy with the results. Even use it on my Fish Trap Pro. It helps repel the water but also helps keep the material from drying out too fast.

The spray-on waterproofers work well, but are not durable. If you're down on your knees in the mud and water, you'll get wet after not too long, no matter how well you use those sprays. Just the nature of the beast. Still, better to spray it on than go without. grin.gif

Nikwax makes a great bunch of waterproofing products including a spray. I know REI carries it, not sure who else.
It's great stuff, give it a try.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
