The Sessa Carlo Backpack is made waterproof nylon, leather and heavy duty brass hardware. Its design is inspired by wilderness and camping survival packs from the mid-20th century along with Italian military bags. Dimensions: 13" x 4" x 17" inches (33 x 10 x 43 cm) All new material that still has that timeless look. Hardy, light, and well-built, it's elegant and rugged for your gadgets, books, and other necessary things. There's something wonderful about just holding it and seeing the some of its past life still there, but disconnected from it's first identity.
Sessa Carlo Series - This series was named after the first vintage rucksack I ever bought with the name of the previous owner still in the name tag slot. Yes, there is a Sessa Carlo out there. He was probably an infantry guy, at that time in the 1950s, eighteen and scared out of his wits.
