    Default Silicone spray on bivvy sacks?

    Has anyone ever sprayed their bivy sack with silicone spray? I just got to thinking maybe if the bottom was sprayed, it would help keep it more waterproof, maybe not spray the top so that it can still breath. For some reason it seems like it might not be a good idea, not sure why. Any thoughts?

    Really depends on what material the sack is. Sylnylon, go ahead. Gore tex maybe not...

    In my view placing a plastic bag inside the sack would do a better job than silicone, since this product (silicone) would just get on whatever you have inside. Silicone is not going to plug the very small openings of the sack's material.
