Kasperi Originals are the first and sometimes the only items of their kind. They are items with a meaningful history. They are items with a certain significance.
We dream of a world where all types of items are used for life and cherished. A world where memories and stories connect to the things we own and use. A world where those stories get passed on together with the things. A world where things are valued for the memories they create. Kasperi Originals is an ode to that world.
Sometimes they are the first pieces of a classic batch, used and tested hard. Sometimes they are untouched experiments. Sometimes they've been around and seen the world. Sometimes they are the markers of a milestone.
Kasperi Originals are pieces, made to be used, cherished, and passed on for generations.
When creating the S.04 in late 2020 we were trying out different combinations and made this inverted contrast Natural and Ivory Fold Top, where the frame is lighter than the tube. We think it turned out great, a pack for the non-conformist and the creative. This pack is entirely unused and completely unique.
In the spring of 2020, we made the first whitetail deer pack, the numbered and limited moss green Specials S.03. That pack blew us away with its popularity and thus we brought that back as the moss green whitetail Fold Top. Later on in 2020 we developed the S.04 that launched in the spring of 2021. In the midst of experimenting out different versions of the whitetail leather Fold Top, we created a one-of-a-kind Fold Top out of natural whitetail leather from Ahlskog tannery in Finland and Ivory vegetable-tanned bovine leather from the Splenda tannery in Catalonia.
The Fold Top is our most popular best-selling product and it turns heads wherever we go. As a product that lasts a lifetime, it is an investment that only gets better, more sustainable, and affordable with time. Stylish for city use. Sturdy for forest hiking. Easily big enough for a weekend trip. Compact to carry on as cabin luggage. Its ergonomics are designed to keep it comfortable even after full days of carrying heavier loads. It might just be the last backpack you’ll ever need.
A detachable computer sleeve is included. The sleeve attaches only at the top to let the bag conform to the shape of your back. It also works as padding when the bag is packed full. The bag has six external attachment points for external gear like camera tripods, fishing rods, or camping gear.
One outer pocket for smaller items.
60 mm wide ergonomically designed shoulder straps.
Includes detachable laptop computer sleeve up to 15” laptops.
A place for rear bicycle light.
Extension strap for maximizing packing capacity.
D-ring key loop inside.
Special KASPERI stainless steel buckle.
Six attachment points for equipment straps.
