A favourite from the Vasco “Old Oil Series” is this 2 way helmet bag. A stunning bag that is based on US pilots helmet bags of the 20’s and 30’s but reimagined for the hat wearer of today. We think they are stunning bags in terms of design and material whilst serving as a smaller sized backpack or tote/ hand carry bag. Either way they are stylish and a real bag for life. Even better if you are a hat fan as the 4 visible straps can be moved to securely keep your hat flat on your travels.
The leather is vegetable tanned in Himeji, Japan and “hill dyed” by hand which is a very old traditional hand dyeing method which gives the leather a very rich lustre and slight vintage texture and look. It’s beautiful.
The brass fittings are custom made for Vasco, the interior is lined with a heavy duty canvas and the removeable straps are lined with heavy duty felt for carrying comfort. Nothing has been missed.
