Scotch guarding briar pants....

My buddy put me on to this trick. My briar pants are pretty old and are certainly not water proof. My friend sprayed his and last weekend on our grouse hunt his pants were bone dry. I sprayed mine up on Sunday, so if its wet out this weekend I'm hoping they stay dry too. Anyone else do this?

It really won't do anything. It's not like you're putting a membrane under your pants.

I've used spray on water repellent on a few things over the years, but never brush pants. It certainly couldn't hurt. I just wonder about the durability of it and how fast it wears off.

Did this to my carharts, with the nylon facing and a hunting coat, back in the early nineties, used more than one can but less than two. It only worked for a short time. I have found waxing to work the best.

Yeah I mean even with canvas tents you have to reapply the stuff every so often. If I can get a couple hunts out of it without having to reapply, it will be worth it to me. Cans of the stuff are cheap at Wal-Mart. It doesn't take much to cover an entire pair of pants.
