Sweet; no more mustard-stained white canvas shoes. Will be interesting to see how this works for resisting buildup on topsheets too.

Ya, I'm wondering what it'll do to breathability, or what would happen if you put some on your skins to prevent glopping?

I have some of this nano stuff, it works very similar to neverwet. It might be the same stuff actually, a dude imported it and wouldn't tell me where he got it.

It's hit and miss as far as what materials it works best on, but if you soak your shoes in it and let dry it's pretty spectacular. But I haven't really found a use for it other than the novelty of watching stuff glide off your shoes. :D

I think it will still be somewhat breathable, as it's mostly alcohol based and very thin. Haven't tried it on clothes yet as my stuff is waterproof anyway so what's the point.

The bottle I have does absolutely nothing about shedding snow. I've tried on half of my topsheet, and no difference. I was sure this would work, but it didn't. That's what I bought it for in the first place.

Interesting. I would figure it would work for this. Is it basically the same as before?
