	I'm curious what this Nickwax recoating solution is. Is it good 
for recoating large areas, i.e. tent fly & rain pants? Easy to use? For 
the last 20 years I've hiked with coated-nylon rainpants, poncho & 
anorak...the pants have most of their orig. coating but I removed the coating
from the others due to an unfortunate incident with fermenting beef 
stroganoff that rendered those 3 items as unfit for most noses. I could 
live with it but my husband & friends were ready to banish me to another 
trail. So, I'd like to redo the coats. I'm a bit leery of a silicon spray 
coat being as good for rain protection.
Thanks for the input...I've been looking for the right fix...
