"It's one of those bags where I can always fit one more thing." - John, Morgan Hill, US

HOW TO FRESHEN UP YOUR CANVAS

Keep your bag looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR LEATHER 

The full grain leather on your Bolt backpack will develop its own beautiful patina over time without you having to do anything to it. We recommend this approach.  However, if you want to freshen it up a bit, you can apply a leather conditioner, a bit of wax, or mink oil to it. 

 

Be sure to test on a not-so-obvious spot first; some waxes may alter the look of the leather.
