I'm a big fan of tanker series, so far no issues with the corners
The nylon is really tough
I find the harder material tend to have this issue, perhaps more brittle that's why prone to corners breaking off

Btw the bape first camo is super dope!

This is the one I had.
The 4 corners of the base had tiny holes and I subsequently sold it off.



Am thinking of getting a new waist bag but worried that the same thing will happen again, so asking if u guys have the same problem too.

I like the Heat series too but they don't have the same design. Also, not available from the online store.

The private brand, Head Porter,[5] designed by Hiroshi Fujiwara selected Yoshida & Co., Ltd. as an OEM partner, and orders Yoshida & Co., Ltd. some of the branded products.
Wiki: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoshida_%26_Co.,_Ltd.

Porter and headporter are two different Brand? Or r they the same like porter Taiwan?

Used to like the HEAT series but find the material heavy and childish to have a torchlight hanging

Now most of my collection is Smoky and Tanker

Great, all the waist bags OOS on the website again.

One advantage Head Porter has over Porter International - even used bags can easily sell off on Carousell.

haven't tried Yukon series before... i'm guessing it's an oversized bag that's why more expensive

Water repellent material. Plus the zip is not the usual YKK zip. Is water proof zip

wa here still active

maybe aiming to get the tanker brief in the future. any tanker owners have long term issues with the velcro? iirc came across some used ones with really chui looking velcros

any difference between HP's tanker and regular porter's tanker?
