The pack is made out of heavy duty canvas while all leather work in collaboration with PROMETHEUS is made out of full grain leather veg tanned in Tuscany.
The "MAHIKAN WILDERNESS PACK" is designed and produced by Frank Libero from CANADA WILDOUT as a result of many years of experience in the backcountry.
Frank hails from the "Italian Adventure School" as a professional survival instructor. In the early ninety he moved to Canada to follow his dream and become a wilderness guide.
Since then he has guided countless expeditions by canoe and dogsled from the boreal forest to the sub arctic territories of Northern Ontario and Labrador.
"In my 30 years of experience as wilderness guide I'we hauled all kinds of packs on camping, paddling and backpacking trips, evaluating pros and cons of each one of them. With the Mahikan project I have simply removed the cons"...
There’s nothing that feels as hardy as solid cotton canvas, to often though, brands design a canvas bag with all the throwback aesthetics and none of the features you really need day in and day out.
The idea was to produce a sturdy and versatile pack with a vintage look.
To do so I researched the best available materials made in Italy with the intent to create an high quality item at a competitive price.
