Default Tips and tricks for bag hardening

myself and a few other locals are interested in getting a can/jar/jug of plasti-dip and hardening the bottom of our bags.

aside from using a throw-away foam brush and cleaning all relevant surfaces beforehand, does anyone have any other tips or tricks for this process?

yea, the spray plastidip wrks good too. Just make sure you clean and mask off stuff. I sprayed my simian and it's still holding up after a yr. Just take ur time. Also,i read you can add sand between layers to add grit to it.i didn't do it but you can if you want it more rugged

i have used both spray and brush on. The brush on goes on thick and is waterproof and prolly bulletproof


the spray is better for jobs that have to look cleaner but it is not as tough, even after 2-3 coats

I've done 3 total - mine have held up a long time, and under duress
I play a ton of wet morning dawn patrol rounds and I am rough as hell on my equipment.

I have only had the spray Lat one done for about a month- I could see that peeling MAYBE
The brush on is serious gorilla s#it: it has barely WORN much less peeled and it is 9 months old.

It has saved my bag too...the few small areas that contact the ground that I didn't coat are beat

Maybe they waited until their bags were wet/dirty to apply it...that ain't good

I didn't want a black coating on my bag, so I used Shoe Goo II. It is a self drying product that goes on and dries clear. It really beefed up the bottom of my bag and it isn't going to be peeling away any time soon. I just got a tube and smeared it in to the fabric. It gets a little soaked in and when it dries, it remains somewhat flexible too. I covered the entire bottom of my Gorilla Boy Spider Monkey bag, including the bottom of the drink holder and extra pouch. Anything that will get dragged and eventually get a hole as a result, gets the coating and will be protected from that.
