a little cheaper than the webstore + save ya some shipping.
taking advantage of a break in the brooklyn weather to remind you friends that the MA-1 preorder ends after TOMORROW!
the updated rucksack, we’re proud to say is finally beginning production. with added padding, improved waterproofness and increased durability it’s bound to be that daily bag you’ve been seeking. as another update, the nylon webbing we’re using is toned down a bit from the safety orange straps pictured. we think you’ll appreciate that they’re more subtle and match the orange/red liner really nicely.
what hasn’t chaned is the highest quality waxed canvas, american zippers and solid construction that these bags employ. relentlessly dedicated to handmaking functional, classic bags that let you push your limits.
after tomorrow, these will be selling from the webstore at the updated price. don’t sleep on it!
two rucksacks bound for the west coast today
thanks again, diddywah
In the midst of a relentless Winter, d’emploi is pleased to announce a project that takes the bite out of the wind and keeps the snow out of your bag: the MA-1 Jacket + Rucksack.
First introduced in the 1950s by the US Air Force, the MA-1 Flyer’s Jacket -a successor to the leather bomber- was all about keeping our pilots safe + warm at the highest altitudes.
Our version, made in West Virginia, brings that same level of safety to today’s biker, hiker, or anyone requiring some visibility in their style.
Updates to the Rucksack include added back padding, more internal organizers and improved strap design. Vintage brass Talon zipper sounds as heavy as it looks.
The jacket and bag will be offered with a 2 week, discounted pre-order, or combine them for an extreme discount until Feb 15th. Orders start shipping out shortly after pre-order.
