I got me some very nice new leather pack boots.
I was thinking about putting Sno-Seal Original Beeswax Waterproofing on them to help protect them.

I also got some new polerfleese with wind sheer lining and was thinking about putting the sno-seal Permanent Water-Guard " a solvent free, water-based fluorocarbon polymer water and stain repellent" on them.

what do you people think about this stuff

SnoSeal works best if you melt it at about 145 degrees (I use the oven when the wife is not watching) and apply it as a liquid to clean, warm boots. However, even SnoSeal will have to be reapplied if your boots are exposed to a soaking. Also, don't expect SnoSeal to keep your feet absolutely dry. GoreTex will do that, but all SnoSeal really does is keep the leather from absorbing water.

I have used the heavy duty Scotchguard on a variety of clothing articles and I don't suppose it is too much different than the Atsko Permanent Water-Guard. The Scotchguard works really well.
I've used SnoSeal for 30 years, it works great. It will need to be reapplied periodically. I always rub it on, and use a hair dryer to heat it where it soaks in. I like it a lot better than GoreTex, which doesn't breathe enough for me, and seems hotter.
I will take a 20 ounce soda bottle and fill it with hot water, then lace the boot up around this. After a few minutes the leather warms up and soaks up a little more sno-seal. I like it quite a bit for workboots and pack boot bottoms.
