How Weatherproof is Weatherproof?

Pond-testing an Outlast Table

Everyone knows that wood and water are natural enemies. Water makes wood warp, rot, and deteriorate. So how can Outlast products—constructed of beautiful, natural wood—be “weatherproof”?

The secret is acetylation—a revolutionary, non-toxic process which modifies the chemical structure of wood to resist moisture. Yes! That means you can leave Outlast outside all year round, year after year, in rain, snow, or mud.

Kevin and Ike decided to test this claim in a most extreme manner—sinking a table in a pond for six months. Watch this short video to see what happened.
