Mine rotted out- too long in the direct sun. Time to renew...

Mine lives rolled up behind the seat of my truck, my original lived rolled up behind my saddle for many years, and I'd lost count of the times I was thankful for having it there.

It ended up becoming infested with Hornets nests after years of being stored in the shed.

Ian, how often did you re-oil it??

I did mine annually and it lasted a good 10 years, but it found its way into my Jeep and sat behind glass for a bit. I think that did it in....

Carl,
I only the used oil around the seams and any places I though might leak.

I use the product sold by Dryza-Bone.
About a pint sized can.
The old one never did fall apart, my wife was the one who condemned it, not me. smile

I was using a product put out by Filson for their "TIN" coats.



I think I'll switch...

Carl,
The Dryza-Bone treatment is a liquid and can be brushed on, smells a bit ripe for a while after an application. smile but soon fades away. A wax solution of some sort.

Do you think the odor yu detect is from Turpentine or pine tar?

Back in the day, turps was added to lots of reproofing agents to ward off rot from mildew...

Could have shot deer mate (pics to prove it) but just chose not to. Didn't need the tucker at that point of the trip and he was not a large enough of a stag just to take him for that.

Yes, spectacular (and back breaking) country.
