Hand-sewn by one craftsman to ensure that no errors are made
Porter bags are universally loved for their incredible attention to detail, craftsmanship, the thought that goes into making fabric, as well as pockets and attachments exactly where you need them
A daypack of the recommended size for daily use. The main compartment is sized to hold A4 size documents, and it is a highly practical item with a simple design with a clear pocket inside the front pocket.
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 remains a best selling series. This bag 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-1” 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. The paint was designed to peel off slightly with use so that changes may appear naturally and the bag will age beautifully.
At the time of series release in 1983, because it was the concept of “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.
