The Canvas Gear Bags are made from a medium weight tarpaulin fabric which is waterproof and rot resistant.
The canvas has a XLP finish which imparts excellent water and rot proofing properties.
The Canvas Gear Bags are made from Ripstop canvas which features high tenacity core-spun yarns in groups of three that are genuinely ripstop woven over a polyester cotton blend body structure.
The canvas used to make our gear bags is sourced, dyed and finished in Australia. The canvas is core-spun meaning that the base yarn (a polyester cotton blend) is completely wrapped by a second yarn (Ripstop high tenacity polyester/cotton).
Core-spun yarn is 40-50% stronger than normal spun yarn of the same weight.
To maximise the life of your bag, keep the fabric clean by brushing regularly both inside and out with a soft brush.
Please do not use soaps or detergents.
All of our gear bags have a heavy-weight lockable YKK zipper inserted. YKK zippers are considered to be some of the strongest zippers available.
Our zipper channels are also piped with canvas which helps to make the bag water and dust resistant. This also also the zipper to be sewn with extra tension, making it as strong as it can possibly be.
The handles on the gear bags are made from heavy-duty webbing material that is specifically made for Angus Barrett Saddlery in Melbourne.
The carry handles go right around and underneath the base of the bag ensuring that they will not tear or pull the bag.
The handle attachment points on the side of the bag are stitched with leather patches so they won't tear from the side of the bag.
All of our products are manufactured in Australia. The gear bags are made from Ripstop canvas which is sourced from Melbourne and the handles are made using a heavy-duty webbing made specifically for Angus Barrett Saddlery in Victoria.

Angus designed the gear bags when he was rodeoing. He wanted a bag that would stand up to the test of rodeo life. A gear bag that could sit on the back of the ute, in the harsh Australian sun, through dust storms in the NT and dragged from one event to the next, full of a cowboys most prized possesions.
