8th of December: The Small Fold Top - Prototype #2Regular price €420,00
Kasperi Small Fold Top Prototype #2!
This is the second iteration of a smaller version of the Fold Top. This version was about testing with a stiffer folding part material. The belt loop in the front is made for attaching a bicycle rear light for those evening commutes in the city.
Our process involves sending new designs to testers and interviewing them and this exact pack went through ten test users from whom we gathered feedback. Like all our packs, special attention has been put on ergonomics and this prototype is great to carry. This version doesn't have the extension strap.
The prototype is made with German SOHRE bovine leather for the frame and Italian Puccini's bovine leather for the folding part.
OBS: This pack is tested extensively and modified at the workshop for changes along the way. The pack has our full guarantee.
The Design – in depth
The rugged combination of the rust and brown go together very well well and with time the Small Fold Top will patinate beautifully. The brown body of the pack is made from the sturdy German SOHRE tannery's vegetable-tanned bovine leather and the folding part is made from the Italian Puccini tannery's vegetable-tanned bovine leather in Rust color.
The excellent carrying ergonomy has been proven comfortable during testing for a wide range of different-sized people. The body and straps of the pack are made from exceptionally sturdy leather from the German SOHRE tannery. The leather of choice takes a couple of weeks to break in and conform to your body, but once it does it fits your body like a glove. The straps are attached to D-rings on top of the pack instead of sowed into the back panel. This makes the straps settle for both narrower and wider-shouldered folks.
The back panel runs through to the bottom of the pack, creating an L-shaped semi-monocoque design. This allows the leather itself to provide support and help distribute the load. As the backpack is packed, the additional internal structure of your gear will help distribute the load further. Combined with wide 50mm leather straps that conform to your body over time, this makes for a leather pack that is exceptionally good to carry.
The included extension strap allows for expanding the capacity of the pack for example on a day trip to the local national park or just getting your daily groceries to fit.
The carrying handle is placed on top in line with the pack's center of gravity, making the pack easy to carry in narrow spaces. It also makes the pack easy to pick from overhead luggage compartments in trains and planes.
