Rated 4 out of 5 by from I had heard this product was good, but I still could not help feeling I would be conned out of 20 bucks and see no real results, but I wanted something to protect my tent from high altitude Andean sun. I bought this for a north face storm break 3 tent hoping there would be enough product to cover the rainfly completely - Nikwax website says apply 50mL per square meter, but I have no way of measuring the applied volume or tent surface area. I just sprayed generously until solar proof liquid was dripping all over the place. I was pleasantly surprised when I found I still had about half a bottle left, which I then stayed on my pack, shoes, and a pair of pants; I still have some left I'm trying to figure out what to do with. My rainfly now definitely has an enhanced DWR finish, that's for sure. As for solar proof, I'll try to get back in 5 or 10 years with some results.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from giving it a shot My footprint and tent bottom are letting water in, so I'm giving this a shot. So far after the treatment it's repelling water fine. Not sure how long that'll last, but I'm told I should reapply it every season. ,,,,It would also help if I didn't set up my tent in what turns out to be a lake. ,,,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preventative maintenance to help gear last longer. Dropped some money on a MSR E-Wing for multiple uses (ultra light tent, base camp sun shade, and for day hikes). This will definitely help it last the years.
