No restoration or reproduction of pre 1980's U.S. Military equipment would be complete without this authentic looking (and smelling) fabric. It may be Vintage, but it still works; water actually beads on the durable waxy surface, retains its waterproof and rot-proof capability for years.
For those too young to remember, CANVAK is a fabric protectant & waterproofing solution applied mainly to cotton canvas, used primarily by the military back in the day before vinyl and other synthetic materials. CANVAK has a waxy feel and an unmistakable pungent odor that will probably remind you of that smell of walking into an old time Army Surplus store, or those old military surplus tents from Boy scout camp.
