The Differences Between Wax Canvas and Traditional Canvas
If you are looking to buy your first Duluth Pack or looking to expand your collection you may be wondering what waxed canvas is and what the history behind it is? What is the difference between the waxed canvas and traditional non-wax canvas?
Our traditional canvas is a tight weave high strength fabric that holds up to the test of time. Canvas itself is not watertight so it has the potential to allow water on the inside of the bag which is why we recommend a poly pack liner if you are going on a canoe trip. Canvas is a wonderful material as it expands when wet, this is why it is an ideal choice and heavy-duty material for outdoor adventures and it is also time-tested. Canvas is a fairly breathable, yet wind-resistant fabric and fairly easy to clean. The bottom-line canvas is durable and will last for many generations to come.
Waxed canvas has all the benefits of our traditional canvas plus a few extra perks. The wax finish allows the water droplets to bead up on the surface and flow off creating the effect of a water-resistant finish. It also has higher wind-resistance compared to traditional non-canvas.
Camping With Your Dog 101
Camping with your dog can increase the bond you two share, create lasting memories, and remind you to live in the moment. Whether it be backpacking through the mountains, a weekend in an RV, tenting at your favorite place or canoeing the Boundary Waters. Camping with your dog will be a great experience, but it just takes a little more planning. It is imperative to know the rules before you go, so you and your dog can make the most out of the trip.
