Best Made Waxed Canvas Blanket 2020
“Rugged utility” isn’t always what you expect to find in a blanket, but our Waxed Canvas Blanket offers that as well as softness and warmth. Seven-ounce quilted cotton twill is backed with waxed sailcloth in a choice of olive drab, blaze orange, and navy, providing a dry, comfortable surface to spread out on or keep warm in. Solid brass grommets can be staked down for a secure crash pad, or strung up to make a shelter against an unexpected deluge. Secured by an adjustable nylon strap with quick-release buckle, the Waxed Canvas Blanket can be lashed to a pack, heaved into a trunk, or stashed in the cabin rafters, waiting for the call to action.
The wax-treated sailcloth will require occasional retouching – if you find an area that feels worn out after significant use or cleaning, you can revive it with British Millerain Wax. This is best done seasonally, to ensure you won’t get caught without protection.
