Canada Wild Out


Traditional Wilderness Pack

The first Wilderness Pack ever Made in Italy 🇮🇹

A six months project has finally ended, I introduce you to "Mahikan"

In my 30 years of experience as wilderness guide I have tested a decent number of backpacks evaluating pros and cons of each one of them. With the Mahikan project I have simply removed the cons… We’ve hauled all kinds of packs on camping, paddling and backpacking trips, and there’s nothing that feels as hardy as solid cotton canvas.

Too often, brands design a canvas bag with all the throwback aesthetics and none of the features you really need day in and day out, but that’s not an issue with the Mahikan pack!

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.

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.

Zaino Tradizionale Wilderness

il primo zaino pensato per l'outdoor prodotto interamente in Italia. 🇮🇹

Un progetto durato sei mesi si è concluso e posso finalmente presentarvi "Mahikan"

Nei 30 anni di esperienza come guida nel wilderness ho provato e testato un discreto numero di zaini trovando in ognuno di essi dei pro e dei contro, con Mahikan ho semplicemente cercato di eliminare i contro…

L’idea era quella di creare un prodotto resistente e versatile con un look vintage e tradizionale. Per produrlo ho ricercato materiali naturali di alta qualità prodotti in Italia con l’intento di realizzare un oggetto che fosse non solo duraturo ma anche competitivo rispetto ai prodotti americani.

Il tessuto è in robusto canvas di cotone doppiato mentre i particolari di cuoio sono realizzati in collaborazione con Andrea Prometheus usando pelle naturale conciata al vegatale in Toscana.
