Justin LOL nice, you should try putting it on the bottom of a beater board and see if it works like that.

Deviant First thing I thought of was Clark Griswold and the sled from National Lampoons. I may try it.

killclimbz All good points. If I go all in I'll be sure to post my thoughts. Probably not going to happen until next season at this point.

Oh Man, this just occurred to me reading your post. The "Carbonium" top sheet is nice cuz it doesn't get slick like a urethane top coat does, but if this stuff makes a surface super slick and hydrophobic, would it make the Carbonium top sheet super slick too?

Of course, I like the Carbonium on my Proto cuz on a clear coated board without a stomp pad, I tend to slip off when skating. (...I'm definitely not flexible enough to be doing THOSE kinds of splits!!) That probably isn't an issue for you and I could definitely see how keeping the board from picking up 20 lbs of snow ea. would be a benefit while skinning!

killclimbz I did read that. I do have Carbonium topsheet Never Summer Splits, which doesn't use a clear coat. So if I buy the stuff, I may test it out on a corner and see how it looks. They did say they are working on a clear coat version too, so maybe I just need to wait a little longer.
This stuff pretty much has to effect breathability. It is a coat over the fabric and it sounds like it seals it pretty well. Okay for boots, but I wouldn't even want to use that on a t shirt.

Sounds like a good idea, but remember, they don't recommend using it on glass or clear surfaces as it leaves them cloudy. I'm wondering if that would do the same thing with the clear urethane on a top sheet? I'm sure you've considered this but you might want to test it on similar surface first.

I was also wondering about the "breathability" of fabric after application of the product. I didn't see that addressed anywhere in the vid. My guess would be that it probably would affect it somehow. (...but that's just a guess!)

davidj Yup, pretty impressive ... but, how about the breathability of the fabric or clothing, once it's coated with the product? I'm thinking snowboard outerwear...

scottb7 stuff looks amazing...this vid shows it on fabric toward the end.

Never Wet

So awhile back we had a thread discussing this stuff. You can now buy it, just wonder if anyone has tried it yet. I still don't know if it would be breathable. Spill a lot? NeverWet's ready to coat your gear - CNET Mobile
