DOUBLE NAME PROJECT - X-POD
We’ve been admirers of Japanese craftsmanship and the distinct culture (and market) that makes the island country. So it was only natural for us to take inspiration in our approach and design philosophy when launching CODEOFBELL back in 2017.
At the time, we came across a Japanese carry brand called Harvest Label (same company though different collection from HARVEST LABEL CONNECT brand sold outside of Japan), who continues to manufacture their bags under their own factory in Japan.
To also find out that the founding designer was the man who designed the Tanker series under the PORTER brand of Japan, we instantly became huge fans of the Japanese brand, especially being such an under-the-radar name outside of their home market.
Fast forward to early 2020, we reached out to see if we can work together on a capsule collection. And more to the tune to have our bags made in their factory in Japan.
It’s not often you hear of two brands from the same industry working together to share their crafts and produce something truly unique. Taking one’s design elements and fusing it with the other’s long standing history and craftsmanship.
A collaboration like no other to look beyond the present, while respecting and appreciating the past. Reimagining modern ways to carry...beyond borders.
Key Features (differences from standard X-POD):
Taking the standard X-POD, we replaced the fabric and key components to reflect Harvest Label's DNA. Made In Japan.
- Cordura® nylon twill bonded fabric (Bluesign® approved fabric)
The main outer fabric is comprised of 3 layers, utilizing the same bonded fabric construction as the now iconic MA-1 bomber style flight jackets worn by Air Force pilots in the 50's.
For use as a bag, the exterior fabric has been upgraded to an order-made Cordura® nylon twill fabric with DWR coating for superb durability and water repellency. In addition, our nylon was produced by a Bluesign® approved textile manufacturer. It is soft to the touch with a silky smooth feel on the surface.
- YKK metal zippers, buckles and webbing adjusters
- Leather zipper pull tabs (front and main compartments)
- Exterior/interior matching color inner lining
- Exterior compression straps are different from the standard, incorporating Harvest Label's metal web adjusters for a pass through design
- Limited edition COFB woven label and hang tag
- Made In Japan
