The fabric is heavy and I wouldn't want any more heavy or it would probably be too rigid.  Any normal duffle use should be easily handled by this bag with its thick canvas and heavy zipper.  My small olive duffle looks great after numerous trips but I'm gentle on my gear so it hasn't had much of a stress test.  Its only had a few drops of water on it.  Its lightly waxed so they somewhat roll off.  Its definitely not a waterproof bag though so if you expect large amounts of moisture I don't think I'd go with canvas, even if waxed.

Haha! They're really darker IRL. More tan than orange.

That's just so much awesome in one picture. Well done peppercorn

I used some coconut oil on my simple wallet as a conditioner and really liked the results. It's not greasy at all, the leather really absorbed it heavily. Softened up a lot. Just wanted to share.

Does anyone know if they have made the brush brown duck chinos before? I'm hoping to find a photo of the fabric in the wild. Hard to tell exactly how the color will play out. I'm looking for a darker khaki, this color looks real similar to the Epaulet Khaki duck. Just wanting to get a better feel for it before I decide... Thanks

Wow, that's a huge change. I wouldn't want it to patina that much with just one coating of conditioner. Takes out all of the fun of patinaing.

Yeah, you'd have to be careful if you want to try. I put it on pretty heavy. I just kept taking big chunks and rubbing it in, lol.

If you all want to see some aging leather...

This wallet new:

This is 8 months of wear 5 out of 7 days a week on average.


And the pullup still looks awesome.

Is that just from use, or did you apply any product to the leather?

Who has chore coats?   I think I may prefer this to the Trucker shape.

No product whatsoever.

In fact, it usually sits in my jacket during the day, so I don't have to have it in my back pocket while I sit at my desk.
