An all-rounder travel & adventure sling & hip pack. Made with 100% natural, non-synthetic materials.
We spent months looking for a durable, natural material that could not just repel water but also would last for a lifetime of travel. Our journey brought us to Hemp Canvas, a plant-based textile with 4x the tear resistance of cotton! We sought to use only natural materials — lowering our reliance on synthetics that can take centuries to break down.
So How Strong is Hemp? Our material is strong enough for the slash of a sharp knife to leave almost no impact!
But we didn’t stop there. We also wanted our material to resist moisture for unexpected situations like getting caught in a downpour or accidentally spilling a drink.
So we built water-resistance right into the fabric of the bag itself — by fusing a water-based PU coating underneath the hemp textile. We’re confident that it can handle whatever your adventures throw at you, keeping your valuables safe and dry!
Check out this test below to see how it holds up:
Early prototypes convinced us to add an expandable section. It gives you the flexibility of a slim and sleek bag for your light-duty daily carry with the option to expand when you need space for your favorite gadget.
Simply unzip the rear section of the bag to open up 22% more bag space. That’s just enough capacity to fit a full-size camera or a medium-sized reusable water bottle.
All you’ve got to do is unzip the back zipper:
There’s even enough space to fit a drone and the controller. Here’s a video of us packing a DJI Mavic Air 2:
We designed the Bould pack to be useful in any travel scenario. You can wear it as a crossbody pack, hip pack, or as a sling across your back. The subtle design complements all sorts of outfits without compromising comfort or functionality.
Great for all activities from travel, dog walking, hiking, photography, music festivals, and much more!
5 different-sized pockets make it easy to pack and find all the essentials for your next adventure. There’s also a hidden pocket in the back where you could store important valuables like a passport or wallet.
The bag’s interior is made from a lighter grade hemp textile with natural antibacterial qualities, making it a little more okay if you accidentally leave your lunch inside for a few days (Don’t try this though ?).
Pack with us in this short walkthrough of the interior:
Stretching back thousands of years, hemp has an amazing history — as one of the first textiles used by humankind.
Its early uses ranged from the material of choice for clothing, sails for ships, and it was even used as the original canvas for the declaration of independence.
Did you know the origins of the word “canvas” are rooted in the word “cannabis?”
We are building a conscious culture of travelers, explorers, and wanderers who take small steps in their every day to build a brighter future. The Fabric of Earth’s ecosystems is fragile. Let’s design a future that works with nature vs against it. When nature thrives, we all do.
We’re a small group of fun people living between Colorado and Vietnam: two beautiful, unique places for exploration and adventure! We share a common mission, working to create good in the world by using our skills & talents, questioning the status quo, and committing ourselves to build a green future. It’s taken a ton of hard work to get us to this point, so hats off to everyone!
Building the project up to this point has been a labor of love. We’ve come this far without outside investment, working mostly out of our own homes. We’re proud of where we started and see this project as a springboard to build Kodama into a brand that will have positive impacts on Earth and its communities.
