Leather vs. Waxed Canvas

How to Care for Leather Vintage Gun Cases
There are 2 main schools of thought when it comes to leather care: one attempts to keep the leather looking brand spanking new. The other is more concerned with caring for the leather in a way that lets the story of the leather—and its carrier—emerge over time. (Spoiler alert: we’re in the latter camp.) Check out this article for 4 simple steps to care for leather, be it one of our vintage style gun cases or any of our other rugged leather bags.
How to Care for Waxed Canvas Vintage Gun Cases
Like high-quality leather, waxed canvas looks and feels better the more you use it. It’s durable and water resistant, and the scuffs and marks it picks up along the way only add to its character. But, you still want to treat it right so it will last for a lifetime of adventures. Visit this article for all of our tips on how to care for any of our vintage style waxed canvas bags and cases.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. What do you mean by “vintage gun cases?”
“Vintage” technically refers to any product made between 50 and 100 years ago. It takes a lot of extra care to keep anything that old in good condition, let alone in usable condition. And since a truly vintage gun case will have already been around 50-100 years, you won’t get to enjoy much of its best years, if any. (Not to mention, it can be challenging to find an authentic vintage gun case, let alone one that’s in great shape and within your budget.)
