Rakuten: 782-08692 points of Yoshida bag porter union PORTER UNION rucksack Yoshida bag 10 times porter bags- Shopping Japanese products from Japan

This bag is from Porter International right? is the quality the same as headporter?
Porter, the japan one. not taiwan's porter international

Union series is one of the special ones that don't use their standard logo

standard Porter logos, those on leather goods would have it embossed sometimes in plain words or the same exact logo itself instead of these fabric patches




International's logos are







i am also curious about any differences in quality between Porter and Headporter. i think there are non quality differences other than its more exclusive releases, the sewn in 'Head Porter' tag inside and that funky authenticity card

Porter Japan's quality is way better than Porter International, in terms of zippers and materials.

For example, the MA-1 material on my HP tanker waist bag is a lux, smooth satin with solid, thick zippers. The "tanker" version from International is some micro-mesh nonsense with a flimsy zipper.

Black beauty is more expensive than Tanker. Material used are different. Will be good to touch the physical thing before you decide.

the authentic one or rather original is Yoshida and Company Porter Japan and Tokyo.



portal international came out subsequently to cater to other regions, which is avalable in sg. some claim that international quality is not as good, and they price themselves higher than the original (dont know why).

if im not wrong, u cant get Yoshida and co porter in sg. but u can get them via HEADPORTER OFFICIAL ONLINE STORE . original yet still cheaper than international.
