Check THIS out

So I saw this stuff many moons ago in a YouTube video, but now it's commercially produced and available (About $20).


So I'm thinking... spray this stuff all over your riding gear... could you possibly have better rain gear than rain gear that's hydrophobic (repels water)? It would just bead off!

I've heard of it discoloring boots and things though. But who knows. What a neat idea!

I also wonder how well this works with leather? I have some warm leather gloves that I love, especially when it's cold and rainy- but they do get soggy when it rains. Seems like a perfect use for this stuff!

If it does discolor certain boots and things, I could always coat a few pairs of long socks... same principle right, feet stay dry! LOL

That would be nice if we could put that on paint and chrome. Bugs would come right of and when you road in the rain there would be no water spots lol.

They don't get dirty or stinky since nothing sticks to them. No need to wash.

Well they say it won't hold up to soaps and certain solvents. So I assume, then, that sticking it in the washing machine would just wash away the coating anyway.

But, if it's hydrophobic, does it really need washed? Nothing will stain it, no moisture or sweat will impermeate it.
