Manhattan Portage has teamed up with acclaimed military supplier Alpha Industries to help celebrate their 50th year anniversary of the classic M-65 Field Coat. During the Vietnam War, the M-65 field jacket was issued to soldiers and has been available on the commercial market since the 1970s.
Based off the original ALICE (All-Purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment) system introduced in 1970s, the Manhattan Portage x Alpha Industries Jungle Backpack is wrapped in old time nostalgia fitted with updated specs. The main body of this bag is made using the classic cotton and nylon blend fabric found on the Classic Alpha Industries M-65 jacket and features their signature pocket design and snaps. This piece has been outfitted with lightweight yet strong delrin clasps and nylon pp webbing straps for fastening.
