The Askja Backpack is a collaboration between Crud and Jonas Olsson- a Swedish designer that has been working for some of the biggest brands on the Scandinavian market. In this collaboration we combine the roughness and durability of the classic Crud pack with the pattern construction and details found in the collection of JOS series.
Each leather detail in the Askja pack is carefully selected and hand washed in a special blend of water and leather oils. After washing, the leather is left to slowly dry before all leather edges are beveled, waxed and burnished and the leather surface is hand polished. This treatment gives the leather surface a rugged and aged look.
We have used a slightly stiffer waxed canvas for the Askja packs that is highly water repellent and as in our classic Landöpack you will find a wool padding in the back section and a reinforced bottom panel for extra durability against wear and tear.
Each backpack is equipped with solid brass studs and the leather shoulder straps are mounted with hand ground and polished brass saddler rivets for a timeless look and maximum strength.
The pack is equipped with a exterior cargo pocket in which you will find a 3 separate compartments for storage of your smartphone, notebook and pencil. All Askja packs are equipped with luxury zippers from Italian Raccagni.
The pack has a roll top encolsure with attachment points on each side and an intergrated handle for carrying when the pack is unrolled.

Each backpack has a specific serial number on the inside which is registered to its original owner and works as a lifetime warranty*

Please keep in mind that we are not in the mass production business. We keep very small stock levels as our gear is hand made to order. This means that we in some cases require about 2 weeks for producing your new bag or back pack if we do not have it in stock.
We will of course do our best to get it done sooner and trust us, if you do have to wait it will be worth it!
Our canvas has a heavy waxed surface that may transfer to clothing within the first 2-3 weeks uf use until it gets worn in. During this time we recommend wearing dark clothing.
Colour and structure of leather details may vary slightly with each order.
