I realize it's been over a year since this thread was started, but since it's been bumped, so I thought I'd link a bunch of old threads on the subject, some of which provide good info on the plasti-dipping bags as well as pix of examples.

I've done it myself to a couple of my bags and recommend it highly. Not only does it waterproof, it improves durability because it helps abrasion resistance.

I did it so my bag does not pick up those sand burs or the cockle/teddy burs on the course, more for the non city in town course Steamboat in my area as well as state as those have more areas of garbage grass that has these low weed sand burrs as well as the occasional pear cactus that is chewed up by the mower in the part they mow for the Disc Golf Course, otherwise people would be in grass 5 feet tall in some parts more so my local courses. I have seen what they do to some bags, look at my second generation Discraft Tournament bag (currently holding backups) one of the first 3 versions with the rough nylon fabric had the zipper top cover end up Fuzzy in parts when playing in my area when at Oahe Downstream State Park at the Powerhouse Ally course. I did not think of this as my old bag was the old Innova Basic or old Innova beginner model but some bag that was more a smooth nylon fabric like an extra thick windbreaker/tent nylon.

I have not used my bag yet since I did the Flex Seal Clear to the bottom and it feels like a odd plastic rubber used on some lower end $80-$100 Disc Golf Backpacks, think similar to the Throwback 2.0 Backpack and the old Throwback Sack have on the bottom of the bag is how it feels but is not as uniform or thick in areas. It will last for a while considering how thick the layer is.

If I did my Flex Seal again, I would have got the stuff that is paint on as that is safer to use. I also sprayed closer to the object then 8 inches as the stuff was not working at 8 inches initially and you see on the TV they are closer at 6-4 inches when spraying. However If one wanted to save the color of the item maybe have it a single shade lighter or darker depending on the color, the clear spray's is the way to go.
