  1. Love Khumalo

    The classic bar is my favorite. It has a different texture and goes on thicker than the new one.

  2. Brent Taylor

    Best ever.

  3. Jamie Smith

    My boots and anorak are totally sealed from the elements. A week in the Adirondacks was a stroll in the park and the waterproof coating still looks new. Please start stocking this at REI, we need it.
