To differentiate Porter tanker fakes, first off check the zippers. Porter uss YKK while the fakes usually uses no-brand zippers. The material is also a tell-tale sign. Fakes have rougher texture compared to the originals.
What abt wallets~?

the sling strap was metallic...and they had 3 metallic straps instead of 2 straps..

The shape and material should be able to tell. So far the fakes that I've encountered the material rougher than what it ought to be. How much for the tanker laptop bag?

Price is 24,150yen

Last time i saw is 30,000+++ yen, same website, now price dropped so much? Maybe now consider old model liao.

Btw do you think green colour a bit strange if i want to carry around in sg?

Now i post once food thread abt once or twice a week. Last time everyday post, mod deleted each of them the next day.

This bag quite big right, its a 3-way bag? I prefer black, if dirty liao cannot be seen easily. Then black easier to math, can carry to work / casual days out. More versatile Noir ftw!

yah, 3 way bag. enough for my 2 water bottles + plastic file + umbrella

so can match with my mood lor, sometime happy can backpack or hand carry or shoulder carry~

Yah, black maybe better, green colour like army colour~

I had notice that tanker series all price dropped a lot, even my wallet which i bought at abt 7,000-8,000+ yen, now only 5,000+

Maybe because its one of the oldest series liao? By far the most famous though, remembered I used to own a waistbag back in 2003, I'm considering the freestyle and heat though. *saving dough*
