Waxed Gear


Last weekend I picked up this great Snow Lion brand 1970s era down sleeping bag. After some research I discovered it was a good quality bag, which made the $8 investment worth it. I’ve been looking for a bag for a while now, and was pretty excited to find this. The bag initially came with this pretty awful and deteriorating stuff sack, so I decided to make my own stuff sack. I treated the fabric with some beeswax so that it would be water proof/repellant. I have never done something like that before, but I really like how it turned out. I also decided to line the bag with a soft cotton fabric, as I thought it’d make a nice pillow turned inside out while resting out on the trails. I really love how it turned out and how well it coordinates with my backpack!photo 2 photo 3photo-1
