We created the waxed canvas Traditional EDC Pouch to be the perfect alternative to nylon pouches. This rustic and rugged designed top zippered gusseted pouches can hold a large amount of personal gear, yet retain the old world Bushcraft look. Built from sturdy 10.1 oz waxed canvas, they feature a zipper, leather pull, and two leather pull tabs/loops that also function to hang your EDC pouch from a pack. Use it for tinder, food storage, pack organizing, grooming kit, emergency gear, bug out, etc. It has thousands of uses, yet retains that rugged bushcraft appeal that will last a lifetime.The pouch measures 11" H x 8" L. It's light weight yet water resistant and 100% waxed cotton.
CBmaxwax: Our proprietary waxed canvas is done at the thread and weaving level. Unlike traditional waxed canvases which are treated after the fabric is woven and dyed, our wax is part of the fabric manufacturing process. The cotton is milled with the proprietary wax and does not need to be coated post process. The result is a highly water resistant natural cotton canvas that is longer lasting, has no odor, and is not greasy to the touch. Yet, you end up with that same rugged traditional waxed canvas. Longer lasting with lower maintenance.
Martexin Original Wax uses an exclusive Martexin® finish, which makes it technically superior to other waxed cotton fabrics in performance, longevity, and dryness of hand. Martexin Original Wax is an environmentally friendly blend of food and pharmaceutical grade waxes, and is completely non-hazardous. This unique formula gives the fabric lifelong resistance to inclement weather and as the fabric ages, it develops a well-worn and comfortable patina. The patina develops with more and more use, in the same manner that leather ages and burnishes with time.
Martexin Original Wax is a highly specialized textile that precludes normal cleaning. Just as you wouldn't wash a leather product such as shoes, gloves, or jackets, you won’t be able to wash or dry clean your Martexin Original Wax. Wax fabrics have been successfully used for many years without washing. A periodic cleaning with a hose, damp cloth is all that is needed. Bare areas can be refinished with Martexin Original Wax refinishing compound which can help restore the wax finish.
Each zippered box pouch is designed, created, and assembled in our small shop in colorful Colorado, USA. Every pouch is handcrafted and no two pouches are exactly alike but all are made with great care and craftsmanship to last you a lifetime. Slight imperfections are part of the charm. This is a great item that will be passed down for generations.
