Another great one is this Wills jacket by Ship John. The fabric is 18oz before and 24oz post waxing.
The 2019 run is sold out, though.

The biggest disadvantage of most waxed jackets, as well as most plain canvas jackets, is that they're heavy. Same with pants. But most lighter fabrics simply won't hold up to rough, heavy usage.
 
I also have two, maybe three pair of Filson oil-finish tin pants. The oldest one, which has a union label, has a different feel than the more recent products. It is less oily or waxy but still just as water resistant. And I also have a pair of dry finish double tin pants and a dry finish tin cloth cruiser, which I never wear, lest it get dirty.
 
Filson isn't what it used to be but then, who is?

Got two exhibits here, one Fllson trucker jacket and another a down vest, also from Filson. The jacket I've had 4ish years and wax it every year at the workshop they hold in store. The vest I've had for 3 maybe? It keep me warm, especially over a flannel or denim shirt.

Filson has made so many variations of their products that one could make a hobby of collecting them, which I think I did.

Another blog I follow, which is totally unlike this one, has a sort of tutorial every year or two about re-waxing a Barbour coat. Even though I have cans of wax, I've never gone to the trouble of refinishing an entire coat. All I've ever done is to do the shoulders, which is the first place that gets wet in the rain. That's good enough for me. Using a hair dryer seems to help a little and I guess you're supposed to do it in the summer when you have nothing to do. One thing I might mention is that if your coat or jacket has a collar of a different material such as corduroy or wool, take care not to get wax on it. It doesn't  harm it in any way but it looks awful.
