When I go hiking and camping with light gear, I really need a backpack that fits the type of activity I’m doing. When I go backpacking or on particularly long treks, I tend to look for a bag that’s lightweight but bigger with more storage space, like an Osprey bag or something similar. But for shorter trips I always prefer a Builford waxed canvas bag with a nice touch of vintage flavor.
For someone who goes fishing and camping quite often, I like waxed canvas products with their awesome waterproof feature. I’ve often found that during the night, a lot of moisture seeps into the tent, especially with the morning dew. In order to protect my things, it’s important to be prepared and have the right products. A waxed canvas bag is a great solution for this.
Pictured are some of Builford’s waxed canvas hiking backpacks, with their classic blend of waxed canvas and leather.
These days I’ve noticed that when I carry around this bag, many people ask me where I got it. That happens in the mountains and in the city. I guess we outdoorsy people have the same aesthetic — or maybe, the Builford waxed canvas bag is just universally attractive!
