Default Cool new tech could turn anything into snow gear

Pretty cool, you can spay any fabric and make it totally waterproof.No word on breathability though. Consumer spray version supposed to be released in mid 2012. Incredible superhydrophobic fabric that REPELS water could revolutionise ski gear | Mail Online

Still will have to make sure to apply it to a jacket with good breathability. I am guessing it doesn't allow water penetration in either direction so may have to apply it to jackets with venting.

For white shoes, though, this could be the best thing ever. I wonder what environmental impacts this stuff has, if any?

Remember to have your jackets spayed or neutered.

I believe you can request a copy of the white paper listing its environmental liabilities.

The Material Safety Data Sheet usually lists any potential hazardous properties.... but they don't always list everything.
