Best seller series inspired by the flight jacket MA-1 of the U.S. Air Force. An eternal standard model that has been loved more than a quarter of a century, since its release in 1983.
The original fabric is developed with an image of “MA-1”, the greatest feature of this series. It is constructed with 3 layers, nylon twill (top), polyester cotton (middle) and nylon taffeta (bottom). The bonded material is light and soft, and is accentuated with the bright orange color lining.
The detail of “MA-1” is also carefully adopted for parts. Both of black and sage green bodies are accompanied with the bright orange (or “rescue orange”) lining.
The coating of metal parts (zippers, hooks and carabiner-type hooks) is designed to age.
Since the original concept of the series in 1983 was “travel series with a military look inspired by MA-1”, Porter-Yoshida offered duffle bags and shoulder bags mainly, in sage green color only. The black model was added 6 months later.
