Our backpacks are made out of a water resistant polyester fabric, however should you want to protect your bag further from the elements, you can do so by applying a durable water and stain repellent such as the Scotchguard™ Fabric & Upholstery Protector products only on the fabric sections of the backpack.
To prevent and maintain the vegan leather (synthetic leather), from cracking and peeling, we highly recommend you use a high quality Leather Conditioner to prolong the life of the vegan leather zipper tags. Applying the leather conditioner will help to soften your vegan leather and prevent water and harmful UV rays from reaching the surface and resulting in a temperature imbalance, which causes the material to crack. We recommend that you find a quality leather conditioner that doesn't stain clothing and doesn't have a strong odour. We recommend using the 500mL 'Glitz' All in 1 Leather Cleaner, which can be purchased from Bunnings Warehouse.
