Has anyone tried this new product yet?
 
I recently stumbled across this new product while searching google for painting supplies. Its a hard plastic airtight cover for paint brushes. I'm always looking for ways to protect my brush so I want to give it a shot. I wanted to see if anyone has tried it before I purchased it.

It's called The Paint Brush Cover. I asked my local paint stores about it and they said that they have heard about it, but did not carry it yet. One store said that they will be getting an order in very soon.

It looks pretty decent. Has anyone else ever heard of it or used it yet?

Not sure if I have seen that one or not but should it not have some kind of vent holes in it to let moisture from the bristles escape? Give it a shot and let us know how it works for you.

I have seen many ovr the years though, leather, plastic, homemade shucks, what I do from time to time is contact the brush manufacturer and they send out replacements.

I'm so bad with my brushes, I usually beat the brush up faster than the jacket. I have about 50 different jackets in my shop area. I just grab one of them if needed. dunns Edwards and Sherwin Williams sell those plastic ones. but have never given them much thought.

All my covers rip easily. My workers don't really take care of them and it doesn't take much to rip them. I just placed my order for these new covers. I see what your saying about vent holes, but I usually dry my brushes well before I store them anyway. I could always punch my own holes into if needed. The thing I like about these covers I ordered, is that it's airtight and you can place your brush in it with paint on it. Great idea for when your going to lunch or when your using the same color the next day. I'll let you guys know what I think after I receive them.
