It says waterproof. Most of my Porter bags have been under rain often. So far so good.

Never own hybrid series.

Yes.

Porter International is made in Taiwan and has no link with Headporter.

Order directly from Headporter.org recommended?
Pardon for this uber-wols reply as when you originally posted this original msg I was still having my vacation in Japan, just happened to come across yr post but just for a kind heads-up for a fellow forumer Head-porter.org from my understanding is a HK-based e-commerce webstore, very different from Headporter Japan official store. If you look through their website, you will find that their official physical store is based in Lockhard Road at Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. That is certainly not one of the authentic japanese stores and definitely also not considered HP's official webstore just for clarification.

Go sign up at the official Headporter Japan store as a member, they do run member sales from time to time occasionally. You also only pay the official prices in JPY and standardised rates for shipping (they used FedEx & Japan Post EMS to ship directly from Japan), not inflated HKD prices where these HK-based retailer merchants usually charge much more in order to make additional profits for importing these Headporter merchandises they are looking to sell on their webstores.

Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for your reply. I bought from the website you mentioned. Maybe back then I didn't copy the whole link over.
