      With the details of the US AIR FORCE nylon flight suit "FLYING SUIT / TYPE K-2A" manufactured in the early 1950s as a motif, the greatest characteristics of military gear, "high practicality, functionality, and durability" This is a total series focusing on "Sa".

      The materials in this series are completely original, inspired by the flying suits of the time, and newly developed from yarn to organization with the high technology of Made in Japan. Nylon filaments that are strong against friction and flexibility and have a smooth and glossy feel are woven in an Oxford picket style that combines high density and lightness. The surface is silled to give it a unique luster and tension and elasticity.

      Each item incorporates the details found in military equipment of the time, and is studded with specifications that fit everyday life. A full tanning cowhide leather pull is attached to the wire automatic slider on the main fastener part, and a semi-automatic slider puller with the PORTER engraving originally manufactured is adopted for the other fastener parts. All types except the string strap (17043) are sewn with an original spec tag with a woven label as a motif, which describes the standards for procuring military supplies, and is based on Insignia, which describes nationality and troops. The original Insignia "PY AIR FORCE" is printed.

      For metal parts other than fasteners, we have adopted the special coating agent "CERAKOTE", which is currently used by the US military and is mainly composed of ceramics. The oxygen tab used for the early model of MA-1 to fix the cord of the oxygen mask with a clip is a pocket that can store mobile phone and the like.

      For the shoulder strap, we have developed an epoch-making system that allows smooth adjustment with one action by sewing a combination of general parts and tape with original specifications.

      At that time, US AIR FORCE soldiers painted their flight jackets and aircraft bodies with custom paints, thinking of their families, lovers, and hometowns. Inspired by that culture, this series uses two peaceful and charming "PILOT DOG'S" as the original pin-up dogs. This art was commissioned by London-based graphic artist "Russell Maurice". All models come with a "PILOT DOG'S" sticker tsukesage.

      * CERAKOTE
      A special coating agent whose main component is ceramic. It has excellent heat resistance, wear resistance, durability, and melting resistance, and clears the mil-spec specified by the US military. It has extremely high adhesion to the work piece, is resistant to scratches, and does not easily come off. Due to its high adhesion, it is difficult for moisture to get under the paint, so it is hard to corrode and has high heat insulation, so it is also used for heat resistant coating around the engine of automobiles and motorcycles.

      This is a large-capacity waist bag that is one of the standard types. The adjustment of the tape part was inspired by the adjuster of the waist part of "FLYING SUIT / TYPE K-2A", and adopted the specification of hooking in 3 steps. A practical waist bag that can store not only mobile phone and wallets, but also 500ml PET bottles.
