  1. Amy Goldstein

    The bar smells like mild pine and wood in your hand. My handbag experienced quite the transformation. It has a classic look and feel that wont stain or get soaked in the rain. It’s a win-win.

  2. Jenna Heath

    It looks really good on my purse.

  3. Kassandra Brown

    I’ts a good deal for the durability.

  4. Mario Esposito

    This works well when rubbed on Fjallraven G1000 pants. Do not use their greenland wax, the crumbly paraffin will not last long.

  5. Karl Wagner

    My hunting gear is completely waterproof now. It did not come waterproof from the factory.

  6. Tina Kent

    When are these back in stock?

  7. Harold Faulkland

    Nabbing more when they are back in stock.

  8. Brett Williams

    Just get some now, it’s the best money can buy. Plus it’s great for the environment.

  9. Allen Johnson

    Works better than Scotchgard.
