9981 Duck Canvas Bag: New vs Old

I can understand that many still do not understand the properties of vegetable-tanned leathers. They are often surprised by the darkening from pure creamy white, natural state.

Here is another good one for you – A used 9981 Olive Messenger Bag as compare to the new one.

Yes, the darkening of the natural leather is ‘severe’. I applied Huberd’s oil twice in my 4 months of usage. I hope I have captured the softness of the leather correctly. You can click on the pics and enlarge them.

The back is stain by the raw denim I wear most of the time. The ‘flesh’ of the leather has smoothen out without the hairy initial feel. Leather strap is soften to flexible and real easy on shoulder.

Using it daily to work, commuting in motorcycle, the bag went through some heavy downpour, tropical humid sunlight with heavy storage of files, EDC, sunglasses, MP3 …etc. The duck canvas faded faster than I expected. with horizontal fading vividly showing up.
