Neverwet - June 24, 2013, 04:17 PM

Spill a lot? NeverWet's ready to coat your gear | Crave - CNET

Superhydrophic coating that repels water. It sells in Home Depot for like 20 bucks. I read that it dries with a slight haze to it, but once they get it to dry clear, I can definitely see this being used for a lot of different things. In the motorcycle world, I can see them applying it to visors, etc. Spray your jacket down and now it is waterproof so you don't need rain gear.

Last I checked on Neverwet it wasn't available for consumers yet. But I've seen the video and I'm sold on it.

I think I posted something about it a couple of years ago. Now you can get it at Home Depot for $20 I think. I haven't tried it yet, but I read about some people that tried it and said it works well.

That's going straight on my visor when that comes out. I got caught in a little rain this weekend and it would have come in handy. It gets annoying trying to wipe it off.

I wonder what the durability against abrasion is. May have to try it around the house and see what it's best for.

Rust-Oleum Stops Rust 18 oz. NeverWet Multi-Purpose Spray Kit-274232 at The Home Depot

Read the reviews. One guy mentioned it only lasted a few weeks. So I think the application/usage might be a big deal.

But that being said, if you understand that it dries with a milky haze, lasts a short period, isn't 100% on porous materials - then it does have applications.

I'm thinking of trying it on my dirt riding boots Anything to keep my feet drier during longer rides.

Hmm, that could be the use that gets me to buy some. First I need to replace both pairs of 12-13 year old boots that I've got now (with most of the use being when they were new then they went into storage for 10-11 years). The plastic starts to deteriorate even without use...

Yeah, I had to do that last year with my 10 year old boots as well. They didn't *quite* make it through my Colorado trip.

So while out there I was forced to buy something. I chose Tech 3's. Nice fit, crappy buckle system. I have 3 broken currently on one boot. Haven't been able to replace the broken bits yet. Even the factory is out. So I'm very likely going to end up buying ANOTHER set of boots because of this. Kinda pissed at Alpinestar because of it. So long story short....don't get Tech 3's.
