TECH AD-ONS

Built-in tracking 

Never lose your backpack again! We partnered up with Tile and integrated their bluetooth tracker to be stowed in a hidden pocket so you can track the backpack's location based on your phone's GPS signal.

Optional Wi-Fi

We also partnered up with Karma to supply you with Wi-Fi on the go. This optional feature comes with a speciality leather case and can be stowed in the front pod's pocket.


Our Signature Leather

The backpack is made with our signature vegetable tanned leather from the Tuscany region in Italy. The leather's character comes to life with time during the wash & dry phase, it is then pressed for smoothness, dyed with vegetable tannins to achieve our signature colors, enriched with cow fat for anti-scratching and specifically spray finished to give a soft hand and long life-span. The leather will personalize with age and patina based on your usage.

The Venture is available in Toffee, Whiskey, Black, French Grey and Bomber.
