Nikwax Synthetic Rug Proof Fabric Care 25L
April 07, 2012

Use a garden sprayer to apply coating; did on my individual bug-out kit tents, let dry overnight on the lawn, hung and lastly used an outdoor water hose to puddle water while suspended - Wow! No leaking 30 minutes later.

Pros: Performance, Ease of use, Cons: none to date
