Pushing the envelope

We innovate. We research and develop state-of-the-art fabric treatment products for extreme environments. Our primary focus is solving the most difficult challenges in the traditional waterproofing industry and create products that improve the lives of our customers.

Traditional canvas waterproofing is renown for its durability and longevity. For centuries, rugged outdoorsmen relied on waxed canvas for survival and protection against the elements. It breathes more than most types of fabric treatment and naturally adapts itself to the environment. It stiffens and blocks out wind in cool temperatures and softens in warm weather for subtle, yet breathable summer performance.

We inject modern chemistry into this heritage product to bring you superior waterproof performance compared with modern DWR or spray-on water repellents. All while protecting our environment with food-grade ingredients. And of course, without PFOA or PFAS. Please see our store for more.
