Garbage for re-waterproofing tent
- I've put it through the wringer
I have a tent that is ~9 years old and in excellent condition (no tears, no rips, clean inside and out, always put away bone dry and stored in a cool place). Unfortunately, water had started leaking through the rain fly. I'm not talking about through the seams, I'm talking about through the sidewall fabric. I mixed up this concentrated Nikwax Solarproof up according to the directions and have tried applying this to the underside of the fly and outer side of the fly. I have tried applying it to the fly when dry, when wet, by spraying it on, by rubbing it in with my hand... nothing works. In fact, when applying this to the outside of the rain fly, whether by hand or spray, it actually leaks through the fly, resulting in drips on the inside of the fly that I have to wipe down as well. Maybe this would work in extending the life of a good rain fly, I haven't tested that, but in terms of breathing new life into a rainfly that already leaks - don't waste your money - I already wasted mine and am writing this review to save yours.
