Silicon waterproofing spray for bags
I've been a lurker for a while and thought I might finally join the forum :)
I have a TB Western Flyer (In Steel/Wasabi) as my carry-on bag and a few days ago, put my order in for an ID bag (black/black/cayenne) as my personal item bag.
Anyway, my question is, do any of you spray your bags with silicon spray for added waterproofing? Is it really needed? I have sprayed my previous bags (MEI Voyager and a Country Road messenger bag) and it seems to help somewhat if you are caught in a shower or rain for brief periods. I know the ballistic nylon seems smoother and slicker to the touch than cordura etc, but does that extend to water as well?
I'd like to hear peoples thoughts on this.
