Carharrt Waterproofing

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.
