    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Protect, condition and waterproof your full-grain leather footwear all in one step with Sno-Seal, made from natural beeswax.

    • Beeswax prevents water from penetrating leather, lubricates and conditions leather without softening and preserves and lengthens the life of leather
    • Sno-Seal does not interfere with the natural breathability of leather and will not weaken or decay it
    • Beeswax is resistant to salt stains and spotting and also maintains flexibility in cold temperatures without cracking
    • Not recommended for use on suede; it will smooth the nap
    • To use: clean boots; apply liberally to prewarmed leather; use as much as leather will absorb, wipe excess and buff if desired; reapply as necessary
    • Will darken all leathers—test first on an inconspicuous spot

    Made in USA.

    Tectron Sno-Seal Waterproofing is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best leather waterproofing available I've been using Sno Seal since the late 60's! I've tried all the newer trendy applications, but all have shown failures compared to Sno Seal. Some will keep absorbing and still not keep out the water, others will not hold waterproofing for any significant amount of time. I keep coming back to Sno Seal because it works. After a sufficient number of applications, you can actually walk through standing water and not get wet, while your boot still performs as needed. One key on using Sno Seal is to apply a little at a time, using multiple coats to finish the job. This keeps the surface from ending up a sticky mess.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it should! I used Tectron to seal a pair of new work boots. As an archeologist, I need dry feet and my for my boots to last awhile. After applying a single coat, water just beaded off, just like it should. Two weeks later, I retreated just to be safe. The sno-seal darkens the leather, but to a nice, natural, worn tone. Make sure to apply liberally to all seams, especially where the sole is attached to the shoe. Make sure that no exterior surface of your boot goes untreated! One thing I did was to heat each boot with a hairdryer as recommended, then rub in the sno-seal, then briefly heat again. You can actually see the boot abosrb the wax. So far, the boots have taen a beating and remained nice a dry. This stuff works!
