I  think that Coax-seal will continue to be a very viable option.
They look  like a really good idea -- and the cost reflects that.

    CoaxSeal is only an option if used correctly (I  personally hate the 
stuff). DO NOT apply CoaxSeal directly to a connector - IT  WON'T COME OFF. Put 
layer or two of Scotch 33 or 88 on the joint first and  then put the vapor 
wrap layer on. (And then 2-3 top layers of the  aforementioned Scotch tape.)
    It's not the CoaxSeal I hate, it's the fact that  amateurs put it right 
on the connector, rendering it useless for future use.  It's a one-time 
    Professionals use a vapor wrap butyl rubber  products such as the ones 
from db Products or Andrew which do peel  right off of a connector. Do yourself 
a favor and get the real  stuff.
