We get a lot of questions asking how Vegetable Tanned Leather reacts to water/wetness/sweat. Well today we performed a test just to show and see for ourselves how the rucksacks react to water. All of the Standard Rucksacks are dyed with both Heat and Pressure. Immediately after the "Dying Process" is complete several layers of sealant &weatherproofing is added to the top layer and also to the raw hide inside of the rucksacks. We took two of the brighter rucksacks offered in the spring collection for a day at the park and looked for puddles to get a little dirty in. After letting the rucksack sit in a puddle for several minutes you can see that yes the bag got wet but does not affect the coloring or quality of the leather. Please Look through all the pictures!
