F253 KOWALSKI has been kissed by the Muse of Minimalism. Two pieces of tarp form the main bag compartment, while the two tarp belts that come with it function both as shoulder straps and as an automatic closing system. You couldn't ask for more minimalism, and neither could a backpack. Apart from the zipping, fast-access pocket on the back, perhaps, and the two PET sleeves in the lining.

A minimalist everyday bag for insatiably stylish minimalists everywhere. Or to be more concrete: art – portable, suitable for daily use and weatherproof:

  • available plain or in two or three colors
  • shoulder strap closure automatically adjusts volume to contents
  • always automatically closed and weatherproof in wear on your back
  • inner sleeves made of recycled PET
  • adjustable shoulder straps
  • zipping fast-access pocket on the back
