    Rust-Oleum Neverwet - new product - any use for hammocking

    What uses can you think of this related to a hammock? Covering the suspension with it?

    I wonder how much weight it would add to a tarp. Maybe just use to seam seal.

    That is an interesting demo.. Seems like a backpack would be a good potential use for this and forget the pack cover. He mentions a frosty coating appearance at the end and I wonder what the long term permeability would be ie on flexible fabric would it eventually wear off and lose its waterproofness. Would like to see more consumer testing before I would apply it to an expensive piece of gear.

    i got an old nylon bag. had this thing since i joined the boy scouts(Troop 128!!!) 30 yrs ago. i think it is the perfect test subject! i suspect it will stand like all the other water sealers out there. ill let Ya'll know. besides drowning the bag, beating the bag against a tree and running over with a car! any other test thoughts?
    Not all who wander, are lost!!

    The timing for the previous thread on this matter was perfect. I work in the furniture industry and the owner of the business wanted me to marine varnish a metal and stone side table to use outdoors.

    After seeing this product here I'm going to use it to treat the piece. Low VOC, easy application and the "frost finish" will not bother the metal. Should be very interesting to see the result.

    I plan to use the remainder to make a rain slick (that has long since lost its coating to make it water repellant) repel water again. Based on that outcome, I'll likely use it on my ULA Circuit. One of the videos from the manufacturer shows them putting mustard, gravy, oil, etc on a guy wearing a white T-shirt treated with this stuff. There is a bit of a sheen to that shirt in the right light but otherwise looks pretty normal. The rain jacket is so utility purpose I could care less what it looks like. I'll be a little more particular about my pack.

    No wound? No scar?
    Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
    And piercd are the feet that follow Me.
    But thine are whole; can he have followed far
    Who hast no wound or scar?

    She suffered much -- and bore much eternal fruit.

    There are Crock Pots and there are Microwaves. The world does microwaves; God does crock pots.

    Using on the backpack, I would be particular too and probably try on a small patch on the bottom.
