Water Repellent Cotton Canvas
Specially treated canvas without the use of fluoropolymers. Hardy treatment that's fully impregnated as opposed to surface treated.
"We do not use any fluoropolymers in any of our fabrics due to health and environmental reasons. Others brands of water repellent fabrics do use fluoropolymers, which are typically a surface applied treatment only that will decompose over time when exposed to water and certain chemicals– this means that with age a reapplication would be necessary, hence the availability of these over the counter retreatment options. Our water repellent is fully impregnated throughout and is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to remove from the fabric once applied."
English bridle leather is a vegetable tanned leather that has been drum dyed and hot stuffed with waxes and tallows. This creates a rugged yet beautiful leather with water resistant qualities. English bridle has a smooth and slightly waxy hand that breaks in beautifully and grows more supple with use. Truly a leather that only gets better with age.
Ubiquitously recognized as one of the best zipper manufacturers in the world. Made in Italy to the finest standards. Premium symmetrical Superlampo tank zips are the crème de la crème.
