Product Description

70306013600

For touching up hard wearing or flex areas on oil finish garments or for complete reproofing. Our special paraffin-based wax gives your Filson garment extreme durability and resistance to wind and water while remaining pliable for extended comfortable wear. Heavy-use areas can benefit from occasional touch-ups. Under extremely heavy use areas of the garment subject to abrasion and flexing can lose some of their finish and therefore some of their water repellency. By giving those areas a little extra protection from time to time with Filson's Original Oil Finish Wax you can maintain water repellency as good as the day you bought the garment. Re-proof as often as necessary.

How to maintain maximum water repellency from your oil finish cotton clothing.

1. For best results re-proof in warm conditions. If in sub-freezing temperatures it my be necessary to stand tin in hot water to soften wax.

2. Brush all excess dirt from the area to be treated. Wipe clean with a soft cloth and cold water. WARNING: Use clean cold water ONLY. Do NOT use soap or detergents.

3. Apply wax generously with your fingers or a clean cloth. Use light short circular strokes to work thoroughly into the affected areas -- usually seams creases and high-flex areas. 4. Use a hair dryer or heat gun evenly over application or hang in direct sunlight for a real "factory" finish. Hang garment overnight in a warm place away from open flame.

Good stuff
Softened in warm hater and used a latex glove and rubbed in on oilskin duster. 1 tin was just enough and would probably use 2 next reproofing.

This wax treatment products and process is great, but...
This is a great bit of old school technology used to keep my tin-cloth coat and pants water resistant. It does that job wonderfully. I rate the product with only four stars because, absent the product in hand, there is ZERO how-to information on its application on line. YouTube to the rescue fortunately. Additionally, this is a long and tedious process to apply, and it takes a LOT of product to complete the job on a jacket. I was also fortunate to have an industrial heat gun to facilitate the melting of the wax. I was overly cautious and started with a hair dryer, which was woefully slow. Once I got onto a roll with the heat gun, it ended up taking me well over two hours to complete the task.

All that said and done, I am seriously thrilled with the results and will enter the next round of inclement New England weather with confidence knowing I’ll stay both warm AND dry, no matter the precipitation.

Great product good price
Product is great! Was a great surprise seeing the can was huge maybe more then double the size compared to the one that came with my double tin pants. Having a choice of shipper would be priceless. Some carriers take their sweet time getting to my location.

Easy on. Works and looks great.
Easy to apply. Very pliable and went on easy, didn’t need to warm up like other waxes. I used 2 tins to generously cover a medium coat. It “soaked” in easily with a heat gun. Darkened the material a shade, which looks better! I’d say my coat was a little “faded” looking from use but this made it look a lot better. Now has a new and refined look to it. This wax is worth the time and money for a coat that will last a long time.

Loves my Filsons but they do take a bit of care.
Your coat wont shed water if you don't periodically retreat with wax, period.

Retreat on a HOT summer day or in a very warm room, i.e. woodstove, so you get an even treatment.
