Ways To Prevent Pack Basket Wear & Tear

Our pack baskets are made to withstand the adventures and travels of a real Maine Guide. Hiking, fishing, and hunting trips are no struggle for our baskets! Even if you are using your basket for strictly decorative purposes, you'll notice that your basket will still weather naturally. This process produces a beautiful slightly golden color over time.

If you are one of our more adventurous users, be careful not to leave your basket out in the elements for any length of time. It can withstand a good walk in the rain, but leaving a basket wet will weaken the wood over time. We recommend drying your basket out after use. If you are using a liner, take it our periodically and let it (and the basket itself) air out thoroughly.

By following these basic tips, your basket will offer you years of proper use and beauty. Enjoy!
