Once a staple among students and bikers, the versatile messenger bag has become an indispensable accessory in the last couple of years. Seen the trend, Japan’s YOSHIDA & CO., maker of the popular HEAD PORTER label (or simply known as PORTER), just released their very own messenger bag. However, with added details unlike other messenger bags.

The HEAD PORTER Messenger Bag, part of the new WIRE collection, is constructed out of an unique fabric: super-fine copper wire interwoven with high strength nylon – a process that allows the bag to handle heavier payloads. It also gives the bag a signature sheen when viewed at an angle. Afterwards, the fabric is coated with PVC and special resin for added strength. Unlike other messenger bags, which utilized plastic buckle closures. The HEAD PORTER Messenger Bag have die-cast aluminum buckle closures, darken and polished to a gunmetal black color. A detachable small pouch, similar to those used by the German Army, help to store items that need to be access easily, like cellphones & iPods.

Retail for JP¥ 41,745 (~US$ 340), the HEAD PORTER WIRE Messenger Bag is currently available at PORTER store on the ZOZOTOWN network and YOSHIDA & CO., retail spots across Japan.
