Below is our reviews on the Different Products:
Mt. Whitney. At the time I was looking for an option to make my hiking shoes water repellent. Because of the wet year we had in the 2010 California rainy season, there was still plenty of melting snow on Mt. Whitney, to the point where we used ice axes on certain sections of our hike. I followed the directions on applying the Heavy Duty Water Repellent and the product performed great while hiking on Mt. Whitney. My hiking shoes repelled water, as advertised. One negative to this product is there is a smell with the initial spray, which usually goes away within a day, possibly a little more. When using the product, make sure to apply it a day or so before your hiking trip. Once the product drys out, there is no odor. The silicone bonds to the leather/fabric of your hiking boot to create an extremely tough water barrier, while still allowing the article to breath. The package says you could spray this on articles of select types of outdoor clothing, however, I have not done that and don't necessarily feel comfortable doing so. This is, however, a great affordable product to make your hiking boots temporarily water proof.
