Our Materials

We select our materials based on a balance of durability, functionality and their ability to age gracefully. We are committed to make them environmentally sustainable – using fabrics made from recycled and plant derived materials, and sourcing leathers with the least environmental impact.

Ballistic Oxford Nylon

Unique feel, superior performance

Oxford cloth utilizes a warp that that combines two fine filaments that are woven together to create a basket weave pattern that is sturdy yet high performing.

Shows more character

A heat treatment on the yarn creates a crinkled finish, plus extra resistance to water and wear. It’s lightweight, crisp and completely unique.

Looks newer for longer

This weave’s military heritage, durability, tear-resistance and light weight make it ideal for performance styles that call for a technical feel and function.

LEATHER


We use leather for things like wallets and zip pulls, because it feels great in hand, and stands up to the test of time. And we only use the best leather we can source.

RECYCLED FABRICS

The 100% recycled polyester and nylon fabrics we use in our bags and pouches perform just as well as virgin materials, with far less impact on the environment.  

This soft-woven polyester has the look and natural feel of cotton canvas, with the added benefit of water-resistance and improved durability.

This weave has a natural canvas feel that’s great in your hands. As the name suggests, it is also highly resistant to wear and tear.

YKK® ZIPPERS

corrosion resistant, color fast died, polished and plated for visual appeal, extra durable, resistant to cyclic mechanical effects. Our zippers are time proved and easy-to-use for smooth opening and closing, unable to break or penetrate with a dual teeth system.

Caring for your leather

WHEN LEATHER GETS WET

Whether you spill a drop, a drink or a bucket on your leather, gently wipe the excess moisture away with a clean cloth and let the leather dry on its own away from sunlight.  

WHEN LEATHER GETS DRY

Rub an uncolored leather cream or conditioner through your leather to bring softness and depth back into it. Options made from natural ingredients only are best.

WHEN LEATHER GETS DIRTY

For stains, use a leather cleaner only. It’s also a good idea to apply leather conditioner after cleaning, and whenever you feel like the leather needs a bit of TLC. Remember to use conditioners that are suitable for aniline or semi-aniline leather.

Caring for your fabrics


To clean your fabric product, simply wipe it with a damp cloth. For more serious stains, look for a high grade multi-purpose fabric cleaner like you’d use on your sofa. Avoid detergents or bleach. And as tempting as it might be, never put it through the washing machine.
 While our fabrics are durable and pretty excellent at resisting water and wear, it’s a good idea to keep sharp objects packaged up properly, should you need to carry them. Small cuts in the lining or exterior fabric will weaken the overall durability and resistance.
