Waxed Canvas Spike Bag
STITCHED TO STAND THE TEST OF TIMELESS
True to our material ethics and aesthetics, this is an item designed to look like something your grandfather might have handed down to you. And it looks that way because it’s built that way. They say they don’t make them like they used to. This spike bag is proof you can.
MORE THAN JUST A SWAG BAG
Every runner needs a spike bag, but most of them are cheaply made and used as giveaways. We wanted to give the spike bag a serious upgrade. Make it something you could be proud to show off. Something you’d want to take care of, even though it’s built to stand up to hard use.
The craftsmanship of this spike bag isn’t without its thoughtfully re-thought details. The wide cotton drawstrings feature a snap closure across the chest to hold the tote in place while running, and the internal zip pocket is ideal for easy access to your phone, wallet, keys or any items that might otherwise get lost in the seams.
The tradition of waxing canvas can be traced back to the 1400’s when seafarers began curing their sails with fish oil, both to repel water and to catch better wind. Over the centuries, fish oil would be replaced with linseed oil and then paraffin wax, but the durability and rugged good looks of waxed canvas waterproofing endures, more popular now than ever. With leather reinforced corners and accents, this is a spike bag built tough-as-nails.
