Waterproof canvas work pants? I was thinking like wax or something you could apply. I think those FlyFLow work gloves are coated in a wax and then baked.
I hike 3-5 hrs a day everyday and want to make a multi purpose pant that can be worn all day everyday without having to change when i get home cuz i am wet. Canvas pants alone are plenty warm most days for me but wick moisture from the snow and get wet from the bottom up. I know i could just wear gaitors but would rather not have to go through all that for just a local walk in the woods.
Really i am just trying to figure a way to wear my favorite pants all day and not have to change when i get home. I am also trying to not look like i am heading out for a multi day trip when i am just taking the dogs for a long long walk in woods.
