Waterproofing Hiking Boots
I just picked up a pair of Columbia Cougar Ridge hiking boots. Suede and the mesh cloth material- not full leather uppers. They state on the tag that they are waterproof already.
I am thinking of adding some more to them before wearing them out and about. I've got a bottle of the Penguin Sno-seal Silicon waterproofing in a liquid - which states on it that it is good for all leather including suede, but it states nothing about the mesh.
Any reason not to try this?

Not familiar with that product...
You can use Scotchguard...
You can use Nikwax for leather / sythentic or mesh footwear
Grainger (sp) has a similar product too...
It just needs to state it works on 'mesh' uppers.
Do remember that 'waterproof' is a relative term as others here are going to tell you.
