Reproofing Waxed Cotton

When I bought my Levi's by Filson Trucker Jacket I received a small can of Filson Wax. This was enclosed in the package from the USA to reproof my jacket if necessary.  This is because creases can cause tearing of the waxed fabric after a long period of use. Reproofing makes sure you can use your waxed product forever. If you have never seen a waxed jacket or bag check out Filson, Barbour or the Duluth Packs (from which the last one will soon be available at our store).

Today Archival Clothing has posted a very good guide on how to reproof you own jackets, packs and caps. Just surf to their blog, get the stuff you need and do it yourself.
