Default Water Proofing?

Snowboarding last week at Mt Buller my boots and jacket got wet for the first time. My boots surprised me as they are only two season old, jacket didn't as is close to 10 seasons old. Whats the best products for water proofing and are there any to avoid? Off to Japan next so I need to have gear sorted out so there's no issues while I'm there.

Scotchguard spray is what you want, I cant find it on the net for some reason but I have seen it before.

Stuff alllllways gets wet at Buller with its slushy goodness, reckon Japan will be a little drier/colder so don't worry too much
still, wet boots would suck

I was just gonna say "get new gear"

But my curiousity about these wet boots has gotten the best of me.... Did they get wet thru the lacing area or something, or thru you pants and down your legs?

Yes they only got wet through the laces area.

I've read some mixed reviews on this Nik Wax, for some it worked unbelievable and for others they say it didnt do anything.....

imo I guess it matters on what materials you use it on? Does anyone have any experience with this stuff as far as what it works best or worst on?
