When it comes to high-quality Japanese craftsmanship, PORTER is hard to beat. The prolific pack company has made a name for itself around the world thanks to its technically-inclined backpacks, waist packs, and gear; and now, they’ve joined forces with one of streetwear’s most prominent suppliers, HAVEN, for a cutting-edge Cordura X-PAC Bag Collection.
The Cordura X-PAC Bag Collection is a progressive take on the company’s already-successful offerings, bringing a handful of reinforced bags into the limelight. Each example is made using tri-layer, abrasion-resistant 1000D CORDURA, and features a lightweight 840D X-PAC sailcloth to keep everything held together. Afterward, a polyethylene terephthalate PET film is implemented to give each bag its lauded water-repellent properties, complementing a series of YKK VISLON Metaluxe zippers, reinforced straps and structures, and military-grade betting to keep each variant unique and capable. If you’re looking to acquire one of your own, keep an eye on HAVEN’s website — as well as its Tokyo-based Pop-Up, Toronto location, and Vancouver location — for the collection’s release on October 19.
