FAQ 

How should I care for my leather backpack?

You can start using your backpack straight out of the box. Leather works well even in bad weather conditions, and getting wet is fine as long as it is properly cared for. Of course the harder use, the faster patina, but that only ads character to the pack. 

Treat with wax every 4-6 months or when the leather feels like it's drying, treat lightly with wax. Wipe the leather to clean it. With a cloth spread a thin layer of wax on the leather. Allow the wax to permeate overnight and then polish the remainders off with a cotton or wool cloth. The scent of tar will fade away in a couple of days, if a lot of wax is applied, this will take longer. 

We recommend using natural products like bees wax based products or natural oils. Synthetic leather protection can block the pores of the leather. This will reduce the leather's ability to absorb wax and oils - ultimately reducing the lifespan of the backpack.


How long is the break in period of the leather backpack?

We believe that leather is the best material for backpacks because it conforms to our bodies over time and can last for decades while remaining in good condition.

Like all high quality leather goods, Kasperi backpacks also have a break-in period. It will take a couple of weeks of active use for the shoulder straps to start forming to your body. If you experience any pressure points, squeeze the straps lightly with your hands from the pressure points to help it form faster.

Closing and opening the G-buckles is also stiff at first but as the leather loops softens and form over time it will become fluid.

With proper care and use, these packs develop a unique patina and become more personal by the day.

What about repairs or service?

We believe in the “right to repair”. Every aspect from structures to material thicknesses are considered for repairability. Because our bags are designed to last for decades, it is inevitable that they will require servicing at some point. The hardest wearing parts like the shoulder straps are made from 3mm leather so that they will last for decades of use.

The hardest wearing parts (i.e. shoulder straps) are made from 3mm leather for longevity and the whole structure is designed with serviceability in mind.

Mahtava reppu! Amazing backpack!

Ajattelin ensin valita suuren fold top -laukun mutta päätin kokeilla tätä ensin nähdäkseni pärjäisinkö pienemmän kanssa. Minun tapauksessani kyseessä on arkilaukku töihin ja matkoille. Enimmillään minun pitäisi kantaa MacBook Pro 14”, iPad, kamera ja hieman lisävarusteita. Olen nyt käyttänyt laukkua noin kaksi viikkoa matkoilla ja voin todeta että se sopii täydellisesti omaan käyttööni. Nahka selässä ja hihnoissa on vahvaa ja on alkanut hieman pehmentyä, mikä on tehnyt laukusta vielä mukavamman. Ainoa asia jota ehkä kaipaan olisi pieni sisätasku lompakolle tai työpuhelimelle. Voin suositella laukkua ja olen täysin varma että se kestää todella pitkään.

I initially considered choosing the large fold top bag but decided to try this one first to see if I could manage with the smaller size. In my case, it’s for a day bag for work and travel. At most, I need to carry a MacBook Pro 14”, an iPad, a camera, and some additional equipment. I’ve had the bag now for around two weeks during travels and can confirm that it fits perfectly for my use. The leather on the back and the straps is sturdy and has started to soften a bit, making the bag even more comfortable. The only thing I might miss is a small inner pocket for my wallet or work phone. I can recommend the bag and am confident it will last for a very long time.

Loistava työreppu

Erittäin toimiva ja mukava reppu, niin toimistokäytössä läppärin ja tarvikkeiden kuskaamiseen kuin lomamatkalla. Viikonlopun vaihtovaatteet ja tarvittavat tavarat mahtuvat hyvin matkaan.

Mukava kantaa ja hyvännäköinen reppu.

Super happy customer

I'm using the Small Fold Top to carry my art stuff and tablet with me. It's just perfect size for a daily use.

The Big Fold Top is in the limits of the Cabin bag regulations and all needed for a couple of weeks' holiday fits in.

The shoulder straps are great as they don't slide nor fall down. Both backpacks are well balanced.

And the looks of Kasperi Fold Tops seem to attract positive comments wherever I go with them.

Reliable service and delivery exactly as agreed.

Recommendations and thanks. Lisa.

Erinomainen työreppu

Nyt ei enää satu selkään painavan kannettavan tietokoneen ympäriinsä raahaaminen laukussa, kun on tukeva ja hyvin muotonsa pitävä reppu kuljetusta hoitamaan. Tunnustan, että saan myös iloa työkavereiden ihastelevista (ja hieman kateellisista) katseista. Mietin tätä hankintaa pitkään ja ainoastaan kadun, etten hankkinut reppua jo aiemmin. Kun en uskaltanut tehdä tilausta netissä, sain vaivattomasti varattua sähköpostitse ajan "sovittamaan" reppua ennen ostopäätöstä.

Monikäyttöinen pienempi Fold Top

Olen ollut hyvin tyytyväinen- tähän pienempään Fold Top -reppuun. Ostin repun alunperin työrepuksi jota olen käyttänyt päiväreissuilla, läppäri ja muut tarvittavat kulkevat repussa hyvin mukana. Reppu on sekä materiaaleiltaan että käsityöltään erittäin laadukas. Tuote paranee käytössä.

Minulla on aikaisemmin ollut Kasperin iso Fold Top mitä olen käyttänyt pääasiassa silloin kun suuntana on ollut metsä. Melko hyvin tuo isompi reppu on riittänyt myös viikonloppumatkoilla. Isompi reppu on jo patinoitunut enemmän, pienempi reppu vaatii vielä käyttöä. Pienempi reppu on myös vähän erilaista nahkaa ja sisäänajo saattaa siksi kestä vähän kauemmin. Positiivisia käytönmerkkejä on kuitenkin jo selvästi nähtävissä!

Itse uskallan suositella Kasperin tuotteita. Käsityötä, huolellisesti valittuja materiaaleja, muotoilun näkökulmasta vaikuttavia tuotteita. Repun mukana voisi tulla nippu tuotekortteja joita jakaa ihmisille joilla on repusta kysymyksiä. Olen yllättynyt miten rohkeasti ihmiset lähestyvät ja kyselevät repuista.
