Love the look, the quality, and even the smell!
on June 18, 2013
I've tried Filson wax, and even wax direct from Halley Stevenson's, but this has so far been the best. I bought the XL bar and waxed one jacket from scratch entirely (even with a hood), and touched up the shoulders, arms, and pocket flaps of another jacket which was losing its wax finish. I still have about 2 in. cubed left! I can't praise this enough for the look of the jackets, and how effectively waterproof they are. I used extra wax on the shoulders, etc., so they got a white film of wax after some use, but I brushed it off with a shoe brush, and it's looked great ever since! I read some reviews that commented on the scent, but I waxed my jackets in my living room, without thinking twice about it. I think the scent is pleasant (lemony, beeswaxy, piney, etc.), and definitely not overpowering--right now it's hardly noticeable. And it only took me a little over an hour to wax both jackets. I was halfway through 'The Dark Knight' when I finished.
I'm very happy to praise this product because I am very happy that I bought it. I just ordered some leather salve too, and I hope it's as nice as the fabric wax!
