    Waxed Canvas Adventure Backpack

      Inspired by the Swiss Army, we handcraft our waxed canvas adventure backpack, using the iconic 18oZ waxed canvas and our premium vegetable-tanned leather, so we can ensure that it will last a lifetime.
      We use the same canvas used by Scottish sailors in 1850 on their voyages to protect themselves from winds and storms. An organic cotton fabric impregnated with beeswax gives it unique qualities, including waterproofing. The hardware is made of solid brass, like the ones they use on boats, and its hammered solid copper rivets, make it practically unbreakable.

      The waxed canvas adventure backpack can carry +50 liters (surprising capacity), and it's divided into two pockets, the main one and the small leather one. The main pocket can be rolled to make it smaller or unrolled to make it bigger, and it comes with a YKK Excella Polish Zipper so you can keep your belongings safe. It also comes with a special pocket for your PC/Tablet. The small one comes with a cobrax original closure that makes it really useful.

      On the sides and on the bottom, you can find "Pig Snout" leather pieces to attach your outdoor accessories like a blanket, some boots, a mug, an axe, or whatever you want. You can also buy our special belts for this "Pig Snout" piece that will help to attach your accessories.

      Talking about ergonomy, we designed the back with a special foam that will make this waxed canvas backpack really comfortable and easy to wear for long walks without suffering. The straps are also ergonomic, and its handle will also help to move it everywhere.

      This is probably the last adventure backpack you will need... definitely a sustainable investment thanks to the natural materials that we use that will only improve over time creating a beautiful patina.


      Originally, the waxed canvas concept was developed at the beginning of XV. Century by English sailors.

      The fleets of North Sea Scottish Herring, who operated from the ports on the east coast, began treating the linen cloth with fish oils and animal fats in an attempt to waterproof their sails, keeping them light and efficient. When these sails were broken by use, their pieces were used as layers to resist strong winds and sea mist, keeping sailors warm and dry.

      These layers were the pioneer of the famous raincoats fishermen used to wear during their working hours. We use only 100% vegetable-tanned Specialty leather. Our leather comes solely and exclusively from sustainable processes, following a rigorous selection process and using only artisanal methods.

      This leather will evolve over time and create a unique patina that will give it a very personal touch. Solid Brass is a metal based on the alloy of Copper and Zinc. Its applications include various fields, but it has undoubtedly been one of the raw materials par excellence for ships, telescopes, screws, and various instruments for centuries.

      A metal also with soul, through which you will see time pass creating a beautiful patina.

      Sick and tired of planned obsolescence, we decided to make our products last, like in the old times. Products based on the best raw materials, and the best artisan hands.

      Please note that we only use natural processes and materials, so the products can have slight variations in color and appearance.

      This should never be seen as an imperfection but as a unique natural character from each of the products we develop.


    When you suddenly see something simple, you like it and you don't quite understand why... It is simply because there is a lot of work and effort behind it. Congratulations guys, I haven't liked a style project idea in a long time.


    Excellent company with high quality products... I've ordered caps, shirts, sweatshirts, and leather driver gloves, but I'm most in love with my backpack. Always satisfied with the fast shipping, packaging and quality of each product.

    Everything I have to say about Cafe Leather is positive. The product, in addition to having exceptional quality, is sustainable, takes care of details, and is attentive to trends and originality. Exquisite shipping, packed and fast. And customer service, flawless. A discovery that I will undoubtedly recommend and to which I will return because collaborating with something made with so much care is very enjoyable and you want to repeat and tell about it.
