10 reviews for Canvas Waterproofer 1 Gallon | Ultra Durable | #1 Formula

  1. Jarred Smith

    It’s great!

  2. Peter Johan (verified owner)

    The heater took 30 minutes to melt everything liquid so it took an hour to waterproof my bell tent. It smells great and went on easy enough.
    -Update – It rained this past weekend and not a drop of rain got in. Not only that but tree sap and dirt fell off with a light brushing. The thickness of the waterproofer coating keeps stuff from sticking.

    How did I not find this sooner…

  4. Leo Taylor (verified owner)

    Starbrite does not work on canvas. They say it will work on the gallon but water seeps right through. After a long and heated conversation with customer service, they just said I applied it wrong. I put down five coats and it is still not waterproof. Just buy canvas waterproofer, it actually works and customer service is impeccable.

  5. John Evans (verified owner)

    This is a super durable coating for canvas. It fills seams and is very flexible. Moisture never builds up inside, I don’t know how these guys do it.

  6. Kyle Jameson (verified owner)

    The can get’s hot and can leave rings in plastic decking. The waterproofer is the best tho.

  7. Peter J. (verified owner)

    Product works very well. A heat gun helps with application. Make sure you apply on a warm day. Works better than Filson wax.

  8. Guy James (verified owner)

    There are not many options for a proper canvas waterproofer available anymore. The homebrew mixes online are not durable and stray too far from the blends used back in the day (in the worst sort of way). This has zinc and pine pitch. So, it’s got the UV protection of modern waterproofer and classic ingredients that voyageurs relied on for life and limb. Make sure to support heritage products like this.

    When are you getting more in stock?
