Porter x Foot the Coacher Bag Collection

Porter is one of the most reliable names for durable, well-constructed bags. They have linked up with fellow Japanese accessory experts Foot the Coacher. While Foot the Coacher is best known for their sneakers, the collaboration allows them to put the same level of attention to a selection of backpacks and waist bags.

The backpacks come in three different styles and are constructed from Cordura ripstop, high-density nylon and leather. Zip pockets, drawstring entry, adjustable buckles and an assortment of storage options gear up for high functionality. The two waist bag styles come in either Cordura ripstop or black nylon and have tons of compartments and design details. The only downside of the collection is the pricing as these won’t come cheap with pricing in the $400-700USD range. Shop the collection over at HAVEN.
