Surly: Waxed Canvas Jacket Dec 5, 2014



Surly’s new Waxed Canvas Jacket looks even better in person than in their product shots. I was waiting until I could see and touch one before I posted about it. This thing is serious. It’s made from, yep, waxed canvas, with venting on the backshoulders, “bum thumb” holes and lined with merino wool but the details don’t stop there.

It comes in black and olive drab, with a retail of $250, which when you compare it to other waxed canvas jackets, is a deal. It’s only available at a select few retailers. See the list below.

Angry Catfish: Minneapolis, MN

Box Dog Bikes: San Francisco, CA

Salvagetti: Denver, CO

21st Ave. Bikes: Portland, OR

    Just as a heads up this isn’t available at every Surly dealer…

        Also this jacket is definitely rad, I was skeptical at the pictures and then saw it in person and tried it on and it sold me, even though I have no need for another jacket this one was too good to pass up.

    Love it, just like I love my steamroller … just wish they didn’t have to include the Surly logo.

      You mean the super hard to see, tiny one on the sleeve? I didn’t even see it until you mentioned it! :-)

    Few years back my Swobo wax canvas jacket disappeared at a party. This one comes close to the minimalist perfection of the Swobo except maybe the collar buttons. Will definitely check out in person.
