This special golden series was introduced as a limited edition for the traditional "TANKER" series. Same as the Tanker series, this series uses also an original fabric developed with the motif of the US Air Force flight jacket "MA-1".
An original fabric inspired by the MA-1 flight jackets of the U.S. Air Force. It has been loved more than a quarter of a century, since its first release in 1983 and a best selling series. The backpack is made from three-layers of fabric, composed by nylon twill (front) + polyester cotton (intermediate layer) + nylon taffeta (back). The bonded material is light and soft, and is accentuated with the bright orange lining.
Details of MA-12 are also carefully adopted for all the parts. Both the black and sage green bodies are used to accompany the bright orange (or "rescue orange") lining. The coating of metal parts (zippers, hooks and carabiner-type hooks) are designed to age beautifully as you continue to use them. The aluminium fasteners and snap button style used for this model were also rare at the time. It was designed to peel off the paint slightly with use so that changes may appear naturally and the bag will age beautifully.
At the time of series release in 1983, because the concept was, “Travel series of military taste with the motif of MA-1", duffel bags and shoulder bags were mainly developed. Originally, the colour was only sage green. Half a year later a black colour was added. Silver grey was announced in 2014.
