    I think the worst that would do is stain. You could test a small area.

    But then it's just going to smell like an old lady with too much perfume. Could attract mosquitoes too.

    The space after ellipses always bothered me. But I understand it's the correct way.

    Maybe they're increasing the size of their logo?

    Lots of things mention "cool". Especially things like medicine. But with backpacking gear, would 80° really hurt anything?
