Update 9/2021: Our workshop still had a batch of tanned yak leather stowed for us. It should last for about another month of pre-orders!
Therefore we've re-opened the pre-orders for the original Fold Top. Now is your last chance to get one of the classics while they still last!
Yak leather is an incredible material with a sturdy and lively outer layer. Last year one of our Finnish tannery suppliers announced they would end the tanning of yak leather as they reorganized their operation. Therefore we are forced to phase out the yak leather as a material for our Fold Top. When we heard about it, we stocked up on yak leather and this is the last batch of Fold Tops that we'll be making out of the brown yak.
Deliveries are estimated for the end of October.
The Fold Top is our 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.
The leather’s excellent properties have been taken advantage of in the design. We have used vegetable-tanned yak and cow leather in places where their properties excel. The sturdy cow leather is used for the frame that gives the bag its structure, the soft yet tenacious yak is used in the folding part of the bag.
A detachable computer sleeve is included in the price. 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.
Preorder and Extras
As a small company, we produce our products locally at our workshop in small batches. By keeping production batches small, it frees us to experiment with a larger variety of products and special editions. Therefore, we've decided to offer the bag for pre-order with a reservation deposit and offer some extras for people who pre-order to support our production.
We've decided to let you choose between two options to bundle up with the bag:
By paying the reservation deposit now, we make sure to reserve a Kasperi Fold-Top for you together with the campaign extras. Be sure to get yours before the campaign ends. The preorder works as a reservation deposit from the final bag price of 640€ and can be canceled within 14 days of the order or turned into a Kasperi gift card.
Once you've paid the reservation deposit you will get a code that you can use on our webshop that will discount the deposit from the product price. When the product is available again we notify you via email so you can finalize your purchase and we get the product shipped.
