Manhattan Portage, the brand known for its New York-inspired urban style messenger bags, has teamed up with Alpha Industries on a collection of carriers. Fusing both side’s expertise in their respective genres, Alpha Industry for its military garments, Portage for it utilitarian designs, the pair team up in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the M-65 field coat, using it as motif for three renditions. Paying tribute to the Tropical Rucksack — which first came to use during the Vietnam War — the three styles (a shoulder bag and two backpacks) all feature the same rugged nylon/cotton fabric used to craft the M-65 coat. Heavy duty brass zippers and signature army olive green round off the designs with a bold finish. Look for the collection now at ManhattanPortage.com priced from $175 USD to $250 USD (approximately £120 to £200 GBP).
