The RUCKSACK Light


The RUCKSACK Light | Made from leftover materials

First come first served. 

Even a small company like JECKYBENG cannot do without surplus goods and so at the end of the past winter production, a total of 80 meters of our wonderful jacket fabrics remained. Since these so-called "leftover materials" can have color deviations from each new production, a meaningful purpose had to be found. In the end, a limited edition of our RUCKSACK seemed the most sensible to us because the fabric could be processed on the spot.

The RUCKSACK Light is available in a limited edition at a special price (€ 139) in the jacket colors Deep Ocean and Light Feather. The revised version has a larger volume and now enables the transport of a 15 inch notebook. Without the last used beeswax impregnation, the model with 850g empty weight turns out a bit lighter, but will defy every short rain shower with ease.

We would also like to thank all those who have already placed their trust in JECKYBENG with the purchase of a jacket, a special price of 110 euros. Simply send an email with the order number or name and we will create a product-related voucher!

For those who are already waiting for the waxed models! These will be available in our shop again within the next 8 weeks at the usual price of 199 €.

    About our signature plastic free water-repellent cotton fabric:  
    It's made from extra thin and long staple cotton fibres using a very tight and traditional weaving technique. When dry, the fabric opens its pores to breathe. When wet, the overtightened cotton fibres swell, thereby sealing the weave and making it water-repellent.
