Easy to work with (sew, pleat, etc.). Haven't yet installed it as cover for a runabout; but feel that it will hold up outdoors. maybe, I can review again in a couple of years.
This product was exactly what was posted, great wot work with. Just a note the color will rub off on light colored fabric.
I wish they offered other colors.
My original order was postponed by Big Duck Canvas because the batch they received was not up to their quality standards and did not want to send me a product that didn't meet their standards. We waited for the next batch which turned out to be fine.
If you want a strong well made canvas cloth for outdoor curtains, certainly check out Big Duck Canvas in your research. It's worth your time and effort.
Color is just what I wanted - Quality
I bought this material for making canoe portage packs and it works great. It's almost exactly like old school wax canvas but feels better to me and is easy to work with. I ended up using it for some other misc outdoor bags etc . I will be buying more in the future without question.
Heavier than I expected but so much the better! Fast shipment, easy ordering....what is not to like!
The canvas came wrapped in plastic and was delivered on time. It was easy to work with stitched well. The smell of the treatment was apparent but not unexpected when you order treated canvas. I did test it's water resistance, which worked well, though if your going to use this fabric for tents or shelters of some sort, it may need to be treated with something that will keep the fabric impermeable from water. That being said, it did an adequate job for my needs. I will be ordering more of this fabric in the future, as it was a good quality at a great price!!
Bought this material to use in outdoor bags. It has worked very well for me. I am currently sewing tool rolls, and all sizes of bags including toiletry style bags. No one yet has complained about the slight smell, in fact most people seem to accept it. Lays out nice and sews great.
Bought to replace the canvas on an old folding camp stool that's been in the family for years. Heavier than the original, olive drab is perfect. Yes it does have an odor to it, also not sure if will fade but this is outdoor material.
