Olympic works really well. I get 4-5 years on flat surfaces and more on vertical. Have used it for almost 20 years. Use something with a tint and not the clear (it lasts longer).

I am giving Cabot a try this year to see if it works as well.

Use the version with the higher rating (e.g., the 5 year rather than the stuff rated for 3 years).

Prep is the key - make sure the wood is clean and dry.
