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

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.

Although intended for tents, this waterproofer performs brilliantly on a wider range of outdoor gear.

I used it on my campervan's elevating roof walls, rucksack, camera cases and had the best results of all on a pair of suede and fabric shoes which had previously become sodden inside and out in the lightest shower. Following spraying, the rain simply rolled off my roof walls and rucksack in beads and I can now walk through ankle high grass in heavy rain and have completely dry feet. It's one of the most versatile products I've used and it lasts. It's easy to spray, doesn't clog, dries quickly and there are no unpleasant odours. Brilliant stuff!

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

There is nothing wrong with this product, quite the reverse. However, the sellers might want to take heed of the following:

Please give people buying for the first time some indication of what coverage can be expected from this product and whether the larger quantities come with an applicator.

It appears as though the smallest (300ml) can is the only one with an applicator spray nozzle and until you actually have the item in your grubby little maulers, do you know that you have a four man tent and this only covers a two man.

Please be a little more forthcoming.

This stuff is just the best for waterproofing! It goes on easy! It seals the garment very well and makes the garment totally waterproof! It does smell a little but the smell goes with a day or so but it is worth putting up with the smell if you want a highly waterproofed garment! I have bought this item on numerous occasions and I have recommended it to a family member!

It worked perfectly and it is very easy to apply. My motorcycle cover has been completely revived. Not a drop of water got through during the worst rainfall we have ever experienced. I decided to spray it on the top of my motorbike gloves which were getting wet after years of wear. It worked brilliantly, so I sprayed it my motorbike boots. I'll get another couple of years out of my gloves and boots. Just take care not to get the fluid on anything that needs grip. I highly recommend this product because it did exactly what it said it would do.
