Hello everyone! I’m back. All I can say is 2010 was a life changing summer for me! I’m back and getting things rolling again.

I wanted to share with you a great product for your camping tents, boots, jackets, or anything that is not as waterproof as it used to be. I used Kiwi Camp Dry on my jacket which is probably 3-4 years old, and had never had any sort of waterproofing done to it. My first test was to try sprinkling some water on the jacket. It balled up but eventually ended up soaking in. I sprayed the jacket with Camp Dry and let it dry for an hour. The next test showed great results. It was like my jacket repelled water. Water could not leave my jacket fast enough. At first I started sprinkling water but that got boring so I doused my jacket with water. The only parts that did have some water beaded up were the areas that did not yet get sprayed with Camp Dry. I am going to next try the other product on my tent, which is also 3-4 years old and has never been treated. I am sure it will help my tent out. We have not had much rain here in the mid-west this summer to actually do a real life test of the Camp Dry products.

Check out my pics below. I apologize in advance about the quality. I did not get to keep the digital camera in above mentioned life changing event.

Do you work for that company? Kiwi? The stuff is good I admit. It works great for anything you do not want getting soaked.

By the way, silicone spray (not Camp Dry) is ideal for gun bluing as well. Keep a coat of silicone on all metal areas. Do not use products like oil or WD-40 because those products do NOT breathe and may accumulate a layer of rust UNDER the layer of coating. Silicone will not do this. Not sure what other components are in Camp Dry. For this reason I would recommend pure silicone spray for your guns and other tools. Any hardware shop like Ace or Home Depot sells it.
