Caring for your Canvas & Leather
Duluth Pack Products
Duluth Pack products only get better with age. Here are a few maintenance suggestions to help your product last a lifetime.
Washing and Maintaining:
When not in use, store Duluth Pack products in a cool, dry and well ventilated area to avoid mold and mildew. If washing becomes necessary, spot wash with warm water and a mild soap, such as the Mirazyme Odor Eliminator. This can be done at the beginning of the season if you find your packs have a musty smell.
Oil and condition leather components on a regular basis or when leather looks dry. Without proper conditioning, the leather will become brittle and may break when you really don’t want it to! We suggest Lexol Leather care products such as Lexol Leather Conditioner (also available in Quick Wipes).
You can make your canvas pack even more water-resistant, by using Nikwax Cotton Proof as directed. Our waxed canvas products can be re-waxed as needed, or applied with Nikwax Wax-Cotton Proof. When using your packs this summer, remember the following:
1. Our canvas is over dyed and when wet, the canvas may bleed.
2. Remove contents and allow the product to dry completely.
3. Canvas is a natural, water resistant, and breathable fiber, which means it will dry quickly and completely so you won’t have to worry about your stuff being wet for an entire trip!
