Old-School Craft for New Age Adventurers

Beeswaxed Twill

Traditional cotton twill that has been wax treated to repel water. Unlike manmade fibres such as nylon and polyester, waxed cotton breathes and ages with a leather-like patina.

Real Brass Harware

Genuine solid brass hardware is rarely used because it's expensive. We say- hang the expense! Real brass is heavier than the fake alternatives and develops an authentic patina.

Eco Leather

Otherwise known as Vegetable Tanned Leather. It's genuine cow leather that is processed using traditional methods. It's more expensive and requires more time but it lasts up to 4 times longer.

Received the bag in the post yesterday with only a short delivery time (Australia). Packed all the work gear in it last night and the first trip in today it was perfect. Fits all the gear i need in it which is great and this makes it easier not to bring more stuff home as i have a habit of overloading my old laptop backpack.




Quality Product

Every seam, every stitch is perfect. You just get the feeling that it will last a lifetime and more!

Waxing canvas is a natural way or protecting the fabric and whoever is under it. The wax finish causes water to bead off instead of soaking into the fibres. The advantage is that this method of proofing the fabric also allows it to breathe, unlike the plastic treatment options found in waterproof fabrics. Want to know more? Read this article.
