Need to reapply waterproofing to my hiking boots. They are fabric and suede. What do y’all use?

Kiwi quick dry is what I use for a general boot waterproofer


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Even the best waterproof boots or the best waterproofing added to a boot doesn't stay waterproof for long. The best tactic is to carry several pairs of socks and change them every few hours and leave the ones that you took off clipped to the outside of your pack to dry.


Trolling? Heck no, I meant every word of it.

There is a big difference between a DWR and Waterproof breathable laminate, you can have either or but for best results you need intact integrity of both

As of today the new DWR aren’t very durable, so reapplication is needed more often but if you can find some of the old DWR with PFCs, the water resistance is very durable, all things considering
