    I'm sure they are out there. Any good sprays/applicants to add more water-resistance to bags?

    check shoe stores, some often offer aerosol options, not the best, but work pretty good

    I have not tried it on bags, but I've used scotchgard durable water repellent on boots and fabric coats.

    We use a lotta the Asko-Sno Seal spray waterproofer on hunting gear, ground blinds, coveralls,etc.....simply because it's easy to find, here.
    (Sporting Goods / Camping section @ Walmart; orange-top can.)
    It works great; costs about $4.70 / can.

    We apply it once a year.

    Must be applied outside! and it does stink til it dries....Leave it outside overnite...then: no discernible scent.

    Also look at Revivex... formulated to renew the repellent on Gore-tex and related similar products.

    All I'm ever able to get are the scotchgard products and they don't come cheap here.. I have been using scotchgard's outdoor water shield and it has work great but I find that it will stain if it isn't just water hitting it.. I just managed to get my hands on a bottle of 303 fabric guard and just did an application.. so far it appears to repel liquids better.. Not too sure how it'll hold up to use though..

    I have waterproofed canvas (A tent top) with a mixture of silicone sealant and paint thinner. I applied it with a paint roller and allow to dry. Nothing got through that roof! I would test the mixture on a sample of the material, but it should work very well.

    Camp Dry works pretty good but smells bad, make sure you let it dry for 24 hours outside.
