HAVEN and PORTER are continuing their long-standing collaborative relationship with a concise two-bag collection for 2021. Consisting of a Utility Tote Bag and a Utility Helmet Bag, the collection provides lightweight, sizable and durable storage for the on-the-go individual, all presented in a muted black color scheme and crafted from PORTER’s signature three-layer fabric.
The collection’s tote bag features a large main pouch with a laptop sleeve, two inner slots for organization and an internal zip compartment for valuables. There’s also a large utility pocket on the outside so it’s easy to keep your daily necessities handy, and a smaller zipper pocket on the other side of the bag’s exterior crafted to hold a wallet or keys. On the other hand, the helmet bag features a wide array of exterior pockets to match its large interior pocket. Much like its counterpart, it also boasts a laptop sleeve and inner pockets for organization
Though each bag’s storage is set up differently, both offer two nylon handles and an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap to ensure a customizable fit. The above-mentioned three-layer fabric build consists of abrasion-resistant Cordura outer fabric that’s bonded to a lightweight and tear-resistant sailcloth. The final layer is a thin PET film for water repellency. Even the hardware is, well, hard-wearing, thanks to the inclusion of YKK zippers and military-grade finishings. Both bags are completed by a co-branded HAVEN/PORTER badge.
Both the HAVEN x PORTER tote bag and helmet bag are available now via the HAVEN webstore as well as at HAVEN’s flagship stores in Toronto and Vancouver. Each is priced at $525 CAD (approximately $418 USD).
