Rugged uses heavy duty 22oz Waxed Canvas and 1/8 inch thick Full Grain Oil-tan Leather to make things that will stand the test of time! Oil-Tan Full grain leather is about as good as it gets! The name Oil-Tan refers to the oils used in it’s finishing process. Its supple but extremely durable.
You will see that it gets some markings and minor scratches during use that give it more and more character over time.
Real Waxed Canvas sheds water quite well, its thickness and waxy strands also give it great abrasion resistance and allows markings much like leather.
