The waxwear is said to be more water resistant -- both the material and the contents (protection-wise). This comes mostly via a wax coating, and occasional reapplication of an included wax product that the owner applies to the outside of the bag. I did not buy the waxwear for this reason though, and I have not used the wax product on it either -- I bought it mostly because of appearance and feel, like the way some prefer buying "prewashed" denim jeans over fresh ones. A new waxwear is a lot less stiff than the original too. Some may like this, and some may consider it less protective of the contents (I think either is just as protective). I have owned both, and personally I'm happier with the waxwear but, like most everything else, it's a personal preference. I think the waxwear is a bit more protective in downpours and monsoons, but not a whole lot. Either model makes for a great camera bag!
Is this bag strictly for cameras and equipment, or can it be an all-purpose bag for anyone? Like teachers with lots of stuff? Mar 5, 2013
Mine came with a Velcro insert that can be removed which will just be an empty bag. But even with it in, you can use it for anything.
