I used to spec Olympic as my go to brand. I wouldn't touch it any more. Look for something like Cabot's, Sikkens or Ben Moore or Sherwin Williams products.

Cabot is a great brand. Make sure to use the deck cleaner by them beforehand & wait 48 hours to stain afterwards. The cleaner makes the stain look more even & traffic areas don't fade as bad.
