REAL.

Picked up by Rustoleum.

It hasn't been on the market long enough to determine durability.


From a trusted source:
"From what I can tell, this product works by trapping a film of air at the surface, with the water sitting on top of the air. The nano-scale details are the secret. This works OK for low-pressure water hitting the surface.

"It will not work against high pressure water, against abrasion, or on a soft fabric. When you combine a soft fabric with rubbing against wet [bushes] you are going to get very rapid wetting through."
