dear waterproofing spray doesn't stop the zip leaking any better than cheap stuff and there is nothing to stop the cheap stuff being as good if not better at waterproofing

Jase has irrational hatred of aldi and lidl products, posts on loads of threads. Not sure if disgruntled ex employee or tesco shareholder.

. It works perfectly well. Waterproofed my trainers and I've walked miles in them in the rain. Heat added.

I ought this last year and been back and bought three this year! I find it works a treat on school shoes/boots and our trainers etc! I think it's fab for the price ! Used to pay a lot more for a similar product at yeomans!

will this be any good on the dog! he comes back soaked most days after our walk.

used half a can on a ski jacket and other than punching a hole in the ozone layer it was completely useless. Absolutely no water beading or repellency effect whatsoever.

I'm using this or WD40 to make my clothes waterproof, whichever is cheaper at the time X)

Fabsil for the win

Great for the girlfriends panties

Ignore this. Go Nikwax. It's £2.50ish for a garment or two, and won't screw up your clothes.

Yep , use nikwax for decent waterproof garments, worth the money as it's really effective.

Brought several at full price - seems as good as other makes at £3.50

I've come to the conclusion over the years that any clothing you waterproof with a spray will not be 100% effective especially around the knees & elbows of the garments. Spray is great for things like umbrellas or tents but just not clothes. The only thing I have found that is more effective on garments is the stuff you put in the sink and submerge your clothes in, spin in a washing machiene then dry, but even this tequnique can be susceptible to a leak or two. I've spent 25 years walking the Yorkshire dales in all weather conditions and find the only way to keep yourself dry is to buy expensive clothes, don't wash them and once they do leak, buy new ones!

I understand whet you are coming from. For Yorkshire and British hill clothing I find paramo quote decent and easy to reproof or waxed clothing is good also.

Further reduced down to 49p in Aldi Chester (Tarvin Rd). About 20 cans available the other day.

Even expensive clothes such as Goretex rely on the outer layer to have a decent level of water repellency. This is why water beads off them when they are new. When this wears out you should renew it. The Goretex liner will always stop water getting through to you but when it gets wet from the outside it won't breathe.

So the best way to get yourself dry is actually to buy good gear and look after it. Unless you do have money to burn.

Alternatively, find a nice pub and stay indoors until the rain stops! Wet on the inside is far more satisfying than wet on the outside!

Most likely the former than the latter.

Plenty of comments since joined !!!!!
No deals though

Probably just like rubbing people wrong way

Product is quality if used correctly

Good stuff, better than Fabsil. Jase99 clearly is a Tesco shareholder.

Evidence? And this isn't from a poundshop anyway.

Speaks for itself really - 'all mouth and no trousers' as the old expression goes (bit odd that one when you think about it).
