Feeling the need to be strange yet stylish? Do you need to display your ecological values? Are you in your hear a peace-loving hippie, but still military gear has it's strange allure to you? Look no further you hipster POS, here's a backpack for you.
No, really, this is a good litte pack for the urban dweller for his/her daily carrying needs. Definitely made in the same style as our ol' hipster bag (it's nowadays so underground that the masses don't even know what it is), this daysack is made entirely of wool, leather and has a reinforced bottom. Included is a simple stiffener cut up from B-quality sleeping mats. The outer material is from old children's size Finnish army trousers, which means gray wool. Straps are made of Swiss army belts which were too short so no-one would buy them. You can punch more holes in them if needed.
Wool does not only look and feel good, it's also somewhat water repellent and very much stain repellent. It doesn't easily gather smells and airing out and some brushing usually is enough for cleaning. If waterproofness is required, fit a packsack inside! Now, to be honest, wool is not an ideal fabric for rucksacks, it's not as strong in this area as cordura or canvas. However the wool on these is THICK, so it will work fine for intended purpose - we suggest other alternatives for hauling rocks into the woods, or whatever those outdoor survival types do anyway.
Dimensions from seam to seam about 30 x 40 x 12 cm.
Fabric bottom: bottom reinforcement made of light canvas shelter halves, usually Polish. Quite water resistant and durable.
Leather bottom: reinforcement made of West German submariner's leather trousers, dwarf sizes. Very strong and just as waterproof as you grease it up to be.
Jämä, made in Varusteleka
Jämä, which is a Finnish word meaning leftovers, is our brand for stuff we make right here at our warehouse in Helsinki, Finland, from products that are faulty or just don't sell for one reason or another. The materials - being military stuff - are very good and since we make these ourselves, we can vouch for the quality of the work.
