‘Porter’ was launched in 1962, to establish the company’s name at a time when department stores were the most popular outlet for designer wares. ‘Tanker’ is one of the best-selling series’ of the brand, inspired by the U.S. Airforce Flight Jacket MA-1. The series was released in 1983 and has remained popular through the years due to its functional design features and celebrated 3-layer construction. The signature bright orange – or ‘Rescue Orange’ – lining of the bags adds a contemporary edge to the otherwise classically designed bags.

The ‘Day Pack’ backpack, the ‘2Way Helmet Bag’ and the ‘2Way Briefcase’ are available in both Black and Khaki colourways. Developed with nylon twill, polycotton and nylon taffeta and featuring coated metal zips, buttons and eyelets, the ‘Tanker’ bags are made to age well and last a lifetime.
