Never thought about it before with my petit bucket because I got it from Let-trade preowned a few years ago, so it didn't "baby" it. But now, with my brand new galliera (which I am very careful with, he he) i am wondering if our Canadian Winters (-30 C) is too cold and not good for the canvas. The canvas, if I remember from previous years, do get hard with the cold. The galliera is so slouchy I wonder if it will crack in the freezing cold when the canvas is always flexing while stiff from the cold. Any Canucks out there with input?
