I wonder how long it will be before this stuff makes its way into dwr coatings for outdoor equipment and clothes.

Hey, that looks awesome! If it maintains the same sort of breathability as a modern DWR-treated softshell, with greatly increased water repellency - goodbye membranes.

Here's a video I found.

I thought I would dig up this post since this stuff is officially at home depot:

Also a new video out:

So what can we use it on? Anti icing/balling for crampons and other metal tools? Spray for boots? Bottom of tents? No breathability studies yet so I may need to experiment as far as clothes go. Backpack maybe?
