Scotchgard™ Outdoor Water Shield is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 124.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Coverage Uneven, but Repels Well I received this from 3M for free to review. I used it on our stroller while on vacation. I made sure to follow the instructions and felt sure that I covered everything evenly when spraying, even making an additional pass over areas in a perpendicular motion to my first pass, however, with a sprinkling of rain showed that it was pretty hit and miss. Water and spills beaded up well for the most part, but it was disappointing that even though I tried for consistent coverage, it didn't cover as well as I had hoped. I recommend cleaning the surface before using and making a second or third pass after each coat dries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Product On The Market I got this as a free sample and tried it immediately. I sprayed it on my patio dining chair and lounge chair cushions. We have had rain the last couple days and the water just rolls right off. I have used another maker's brand on previous cushions and they've always had less beading of rain and some absorption of the moisture. Not with your brand! I am sold on your product! No other brands for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great water repellent We used this on our tent and it's a good thing we did! We went camping and wouldn't you know, it rained on our second day. The water just beaded up and rolled off of our tent. We stayed dry, as did our sleeping bags and supplies. We had a great time and my husband was so happy, that he went out and purchased more, after our trip. We have more tents, different sizes, and he wants to waterproof all of our camping gear. This really works and is well worth buying. We also used some on our patio set, before placing it out on the deck. I am extremely happy with the results. It's a great investment to protect your outdoor furniture, backpacks, hammock, umbrellas, etc. If you haven't tried it yet, you should. You'll be glad that you did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Rate Three different clothing articles were treated with Scotchgard Outdoor Water Shield. Two were dark and one light colored; there was no color change. The odor, while applying, was very low. My wife didn't even notice! Cleveland recently experienced long and hard periods of rain due to Hurricane Sandy. All three garments got a real test and did splendidly, especially the jacket I wore while repairing my gutter in the middle of a downpour. I vote for Scotchgard as a First Rate product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scotchgard Outdoor Water Shield I received a free can of Scotchgard Outdoor Water Shield to try. Am I ever impressed with this product. I purchased a canvass tarp to cover my picnic table (the plastic ones don't hold up very well). I sprayed the tarp as per directions and covered my picnic table for the winter. We just went through a 2 day rain event and water rolled off of that tarp like water off a duck's back. This is a great product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Outdoor water shield Purchased the Outdoor Water Shield to use on the canopy over a swing. It worked great the first shower after applying. However the next rain the canopy leaked like netting. I mean it leaked everywhere. Far more than it had before applying the water shield. I also used it on a cloth hat that had been semi water resistant. It now absorbs water like a towel and is useless in the rain. I would give this product a 0 star rating if that were allowed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My Loveseat I received a complimentary can of Scotchgard Water Shield from 3M as a product to be reviewed. Scotchgard products are products I've used and treated for years. Water Shield is no different. With three dogs of various sizes, accidents are bound to happen. I used the Water Shield on my loveseat because the dogs are always piling on for a nap. Water Shield made my loveseat easy to cleaned because wet stains didn't adhere to the cloth surface. This product is one to be used on all water absorbent surfaces to make liquid stains bead up and not be absorbed into the fabric. I trust Scotch 3M products. Their longevity in the market proves their lasting popularity is earned and deserved.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Its So So product I bought Scotchgard Heavy Duty Water Shield this product with also Scotchgard Fabric Protector same time for which works for mesh toed shoe, this product might be good for general leather shoes but its doesn't have effective silicone sealant promise it bills itself for, Scotchgard Fabric Protector was far far more effective and even safer for discoloration that's heavy duty might cause. if you want great all around water shield for almost every material and peace of mind Scotchgard Fabric Protector is superior on go for almost every fabric type and color and all type of leather and colors.
