These Flight-Ready Bags Pay Homage To The U.S. Military

If you’re at all familiar with Alpha Industries, it’s probably because you recognize their iconic MA-1 flight jacket, which was originally made for the U.S. military. Interestingly, the folks at Eastpak share a similar story — making bags and safety equipment for the American Army. Now, the two have joined forces to celebrate their collective military heritage with a lineup of flight-ready bags.

With just a glance, it should be abundantly clear that the inspiration for these haulers comes directly from the MA-1 jacket, as they’re all done up in the same durable flight nylon (in either black or OD green) and even come with “Remove Before Flight” zipper pulls and Alpha Industries’ signature orange lining. The trio includes the Springer waist pack, Padded Pak’r backpack, and Calum duffel bag — of which the latter two both have padded, dedicated laptop pouches. These durable, water-resistant, mil-spec carriers are available now for $34, $85, and $98, respectively.

Purchase: $18+
