Can I wax rugged twill?Updated 2 years ago

Some Filson customers have waxed their Rugged Twill bags with Filson’s Oil Finish Wax, the same way they would retreat their Tin Cloth. Though this is not an officially recommended practice, it will not damage the fabric. Waxing Rugged Twill will improve its water resistance- however, it will also completely transform its character and appearance, making it dramatically darker and stiffer than the original in addition to voiding the item’s warranty.
