    Camp Dry?

    So when my 3 day bag gets here, I would like to try to make it water resistant. I am leaning toward using Kiwi Camp Dry Performance Fabric Protector, which is supposed to work on nylon (which is what my bag is made of). Anyone have any experience with this or any other product on their bags?

    Don't recall using it on any bags but I use it to spray all the seams on nylon tents. Even use it on suede/leather boots. Good stuff.

    I usually just use a trash bag as a liner inside. Done this for decades. Cheap and effective.

    What he said. If the fabric itself is water repellent, any good seam sealer will make your pack stay dry. Unless you dunk it in water, in which case good luck as it's very hard to make a pack truly watertight. Stay dry in a downpour, sure. You can test it in the shower.

    You can also use a lightweight waterproof pack cover to add some extra waterproofing. And storing the contents in airtight plastic bags doesn't hurt either (but don't do that for long term storage unless you have something in the bags to absorb moisture or are vacuum sealing them, because mold)

    I like it, I've used it on coats and shoes and had real good luck with it. I think it last longer than Scotch Guard and if I remember right it's cheaper also.

    It also works great on ballcaps! I use it on mine so they will keep my head dry.

    I focus on the highest silicone content. I've had Camp Dry fail me when discount stuff has worked. My 2 cents.

    I carry trash bags to put luggage in while on the motorcycle good way to keep things dry . I don't think sprays work that well IMO
