Japanese menswear fashion label Man of Moods joins master-piece to curate a special edition “Ripe Backpack” for Spring/Summer 2012. One of the most well known Japanese bag makers, the collaboration takes place using a trail-ready pack from master-piece that is mocked up in a muted navy blue leather construction. Designed based on similar specs as heritage mountain packs, the Ripe Backpack also features a heavy duty waist harness and metal strap hardware. The pack rounded out with a large buckle main compartment flap. Understated branding is seen across the customary corner while subtle military inspiration sees its way to the compartment flap in white. Priced at ¥31,500 JPY (approximately $378 USD), availability is now offered through MEN’S NON-NO.
