Archival DIY: Rewaxing a Filson Packer Hat

If you're looking for a post holiday diversion, here's a tutorial from Chris at Otter Wax on reproofing your Filson Packer hat. Feel free to apply this technique to other waxed cotton items that have lost their finish in the past year. Otter Wax available here.

Otter Wax is fine for both Filson tin and shelter cloth fabrics

In case you missed it, here's the original post from Chris on waxing dry canvas sneakers.

Finally a video of the correct
way to rewax a Filson garment.
Take particular attention to
the 'working in' part. If done
correctly it really works.

What canvas cleaner do you recommend?

Note from Chris at Otter Wax: handwash in a bucket of lukewarm water and castile soap. If there are stains, gently scrub with a soft bristle brush, hang to dry.
