Tin Cloth Bags: Travel Light & Fast

What is Tin Cloth?

Filson oil finish Tin Cloth is cotton duck canvas with a special waxed finish that provides outstanding water resistance and extra durability. It’s made with 100% cotton 2-ply yarns that are tightly woven in a symmetrical pattern. This construction yields a strong, low-bulk fabric that’s resistant to water, punctures, and abrasion. In other words, it’s the ideal material for rugged bags.

Waxed Canvas vs. Other Filson Bag Materials

Filson Rugged Twill bags have set the standard for durability for more than 30 years. Our Tin Cloth bags have comparable durability with higher water resistance and lower weight and bulk. Compared to bags made with denim, Tin Cloth waxed cotton bags are more water-resistant, lower in bulk, and comparable in abrasion resistance. Choosing between a Tin Cloth bag and a Cordura® nylon bag is like choosing between apples and oranges. Cordura® is stiffer and more abrasion-resistant, while Tin Cloth is a more water-resistant and sustainable natural-fiber fabric.

The Filson Tin Cloth Legacy

Filson was a pioneer in bringing waxed jackets, vests, and pants to the foresters, hunters, and outdoorsmen of the Pacific Northwest in the early 20th century. Tin Cloth waxed cotton became the standard by which all other outdoor fabrics were judged for durability and weather resistance. A century later, it’s proven equally suitable for durable, functional bags made to stand up to rugged use around the world for a lifetime of travel and exploration.
