Seems to penetrate very well. One thing I've found with many stains and deck coatings is they don't penetrate very well, which in time leads to the need of several re-coatings. Not only does it appear to penetrate very well, it's fairly easy to apply. I used a 5 inch block brush which made it very easy to work with. Time will tell but my initial feeling is this product will stand the test of time.. Make sure you do the proper prep work first.

We have looked for a dark brown for months. Almost everyone turned out reddish on our deck. This didn't. The color shown was a 99.9% dead on match to what showed up when we applied it. 450 sq feet later, we are very pleased.
Tip: This covers very well. If you want more grain to show through, yet still keep the brown, take a cloth, and wipe of, in one direction, a portion of the stain.
I used this on an untreated one year old rough sawn pine fence.
My application was with a roller. It soaked in like crazy. I was slightly weathered and dry. The 3 gallons are supposed to do 1,050 square feet. I was able to get 600 square feet from 3 gallons. Partly due to the dryness and initial application of the wood, partly to the application method of rolling.
It soaked in nicely and evenly for a first coat. See photos for initial application. Touch ups and second coat still required
The cost is going to be high initially but the money saved in reapplication will be worth it in the long run.
Dries Quickly, Easy to Apply, Looks Great, deep penetration
doesn't go far
I used this on a board and batten project on my barn. The wood was freshly rough sawn Douglas fir. I went over each piece quickly with a palm sander before putting the Oxford Brown oil stain on. If brushed on heavy and left I found it a little too dark for my taste, so what I did was brush it on heavy and let it soak for 3-5 minutes before buffing the excess off with a rag.
