Coating my Tarp with Never Wet

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!

  1. My main concern is about durability of the coating. I wonder how well that actually holds up over time, especially with a surface like a tent or tarp that will get folded and creased heavily with each time it is packed up.
