Logo Sno seal

Sno-Seal is one of the significant outdoor products from the last century. It was invented in the mid-1930s by a guy named Ome Daiber, an experienced mountain climber in the Seattle area who wanted a boot treatment that would make boots waterproof but not soft. This was a drawback of the common fat-based boot treatments of the time; soft boots don’t work well with crampons. As the main ingredient, Daiber tried applying beeswax, which had a high melting point (146 degrees), so it was very durable and had the ability to keep water out. It had the added advantage of adding just enough moisture to the boot leather to keep it supple.
