Easy to use and very effective. Used less that 400ml to cover a 4 man tent.

If you follow the instructions then can't fault this product.
Only improvement could be to the spray nozzle to obtain finer spray.

I'm not sure how long this stuff is supposed to last, one season and my pack is soaking up water, shrugged the rain off pretty well for most of year.
As with all these applications, they're very expensive, for what is essentially a bunch of PVAs and some other cheap chemicals in a nice 'small' spray bottle.

This came as 2x 2.5ltr containers. each came with a spray head on a length of flexible hose - very handy. I have used this product for some time. I regularly use it on my bike cover and garden furniture covers. My wife has a Z3 soft top which needed regular treatment with the recommended waterproofer. I persuaded her to let me try the Nikwax Solarproof and the results were brilliant. It lasts way longer than the far more expensive products she had previously used and is really easy to apply. Excellent product.

Bought the 2.5l version to deal with a 20ft x 10ft gazebo. It comes with its own pump and the instructions say to wet fabric and then spray evenly. That quantity is (by manufacturer's literature)only just enough to do this job.
However: the pump/spray worked ok but it is impossible to get an even spread on a very large area. So I sprayed anyway and then smoothed over with a soft brush on an extension. (Note: the brush will get waterproofed too!) This produced an even coating and after removing excess it was left to dry. By using this method I actually used a lot less than the manufacturers predict.
Drying is quite fast in reasonable weather and a brief shower the following day showed the fabric to be pretty well waterproof.
There was enough liquid left to re-wax my wax jacket using the same technique which now seems ok, and there is still enough left for other jobs.
Beware: The finished article needs to breathe for quite a while as the smell of the liquid can give eye irritation. Ideally leave a tent or bit of clothing outside in fresh air for a day or two before bringing inside or packing up.
Overall well satisfied.
