Default Rust-Oleum: Liquid repelling treatment. Any reviews?

Found this on the interwebs

http://www.snapdeal.com/product/rust...ling/196176382

Says the finish is frosted clear.
Has anyone heard about these hydro phobic paints being used in coastal cities like mumbai?
Anyone have any experience with such products?

I have used this and this really works! I use it on my formal shoes when I go out in the rains. Works perfectly! I don't know if this can be used on our cars

Was it the same brand or some other brand?
Did it change the appearance or texture of the leather?

The Exact same thing, I had someone carry it in for me from the US couple of years back.
I used it on a brownish suede shoes, it does leave a frosty finish on the top. Being brown and Suede the frosty finish didn't look too bad It wont look very nice on smooth black surfaces. Keep an eye on that.

Hey, it doesn't leave a matt finish per say but its more like a frosty icey finish, but you must try this atleast once. And the yes the best place to use this is on your shoes or some doors.

Woah! This looks extremely useful. Can anyone tell me how long the efficacy lasts once coated?

And does the stated "frosty" effect, wear off along with the efficacy of the coating or does it remain? (Just wondering so I know if it's okay to keep using it once in a while on the same pairs of shoes)

Yes it does. The frosty effect does has a rough finish to it.

Does anyone know of similar products of the car wind shield? i would like something like this for my rear windshield since it doesn't have a wiper. if it lasts the 3-4 months that monsoon lasts in this country, i will be more than happy.
