Living up here in Oregon, we spend our fair share of our camping time in the rain. Rust-Oleum has a product called Never Wet that is designed to not only protect but shed water, dirt and grime off of what ever you coat.
I thought, this should work on my tarp… so I purchased the product and sprayed the never wet on my tarp.. here is a video of the results.
Now that I see how well it works.. I may spray my backpack. The only thing I am not totally in love with is that it left a few blue spots on the tarp.. But the longer it hangs the more they are fading away… so time will tell.. But I can tell you that it works and I am certain that it will assist in packing in the rain. Can’t wait to see how well it works in a driving rain.
Have a Great Scouting Day!
