Red Robot will kill you, but at least he’ll treat you like a person.

I just walked to work in the rain wearing my thin-ass, brand new cloth sneakers which I sprayed with NeverWet. As you can see, they are dry enough that there’s a cat hair on the toe.
I didn’t go insane with the spray so they would retain some breathability. I did a second treatment after testing so I could see where I missed. My socks are perfectly dry after 15 minutes in medium-strength rain with a few walks across wet grass.
It worked pretty well on a thin cloth jacket, too. I’ll need to do a second treatment to get into seams and flaps, focusing on the shoulders.
I got my NeverWet from the Home Depot website. It cost about $20. Paid for it myself, no contact with anyone at any related company, blah blah blah. Really pleased that my enthusiasm for this stuff is about 95% warranted.
It really is kind of magic. I could see Batman spraying his cape with this.
