Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bird Does not work
Purchased 3 bottles, which covered 4 cushion sets, front and back. Followed the directions, actually let them dry for a week before putting them outside. We had rain, and 4 days later the cushions are soaked. I have used Thompson outdoor fabric protector, which worked very well and kept the cushions dry all season. I will be using Thompsons from now on.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Golfjack I have "runs" onmy new cushions
Have always used Rustoleum products with great success. Saw this and selected it over Thompsons, which I have used for years. It repels water fine and didn't discolor the underside of the cushion when I tested it but it ran on a few of the cushion backs, expensive cushions that now look like they have stains on them. This wont stop me from using other Rustoleum products again but our new cushions will have to be replaced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patsy Perfect for Pink Suede Shoes
My new pink suede tennis shoes will stay clean and dry throughout my trips to the fitness center. They are color perfect after the Never-Wet spray application. I followed the rules and let them dry for the suggested 24 hours. I then went for a walk in the rain. I Now I am a five-star fan. I plan to spray my newest chocolate-colored walking shoes also. Shoes are too expensive to risk mud and rain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BuckyGirl Very good solution, especially for canvas shoes!!
This is very easy to spray on the item and it smells fruity. I used it on 3 pairs of canvas shoes, it works well and goes on evenly. Don’t shake the bottle and make sure you spray it in a well-ventilated because although it smells nice, it is a strong smell. Depending on how much you spray on, it could take a couple of hours to dry and make sure to wipe off excess spray on any non-fabric parts, such as in my case with the canvas shoes, I noticed little bubbles on the rubber trim of the shoes so I had to lightly dab with a lint free cloth. I missed some bubbles after a few minutes of spraying the shoes and they were starting to dry already, so inspect the entire item before leaving it out to dry. Don’t let the solution bubble or puddle on the item. Before exposing the item to water, wait at least 24 hours. I’m happy with the results, the shoes are now water-proof and they won’t stain like they did without this solution. Especially my white canvas shoes, I had to wash weekly because every single little dirty wet drop of water ended up showing too well, but now I won’t have that issue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by avgJoe Ski clothing dry after heavy wet snow (all day exposure)
I have a very old pair of ski bibs and an old rain jacket I ski in and this weekend was a really heavy wet snow up on Mt. Hood. I treated the garments the night before so they had roughly 15 hours to dry, less than the 24 recommended. The only thing I noticed is the smell from the spray, it is very strong and fragrant like overwhelming laundry. But whatever I just wanted to be dry! The treated garments performed very well and kept me dry all day. After about 5 hours there was some wetting on the surface of the ski bibs but it wasn't enough to soak through. I suspect that if the drying time was longer and maybe I would have treated the clothing with two coats prior to going into the elements it would have worked even better. My friends are eager to try NeverWet on their bikes/packs/motorcycles and I'm interested in using it on my commuter bike as it would be nice to have a dry bike to haul inside the apartment.
All in all I'm very pleased with the product and will use it again but I wish the fragrance wasn't so darn strong. As long as your moving you don't notice it but soon as you stop moving you and others can smell it. Maybe I had a bad batch or maybe the other versions for boots and other things don't have the smell issue.
