Founded in San Diego, California in 1977, GREGORY’s steadfast focus on innovative design, quality construction, superb fit and outstanding functionality has established the brand as one of the the finest pack manufacturers in the world. To commemorate the bag maker’s 40th anniversary, nonnative has partnered with GREGORY on a special collaborative series. Based around a theme of combining the past with the present, nonnative designer Takayuki Fujii reconfigured two contemporary models, the COMPASS 30 and SKETCH 8, with retrospective designs.

The SKETCH 8 is the perfect pack for highly active users. The compact design features an ambidextrous sling design with quick-release buckle, internal compartments for writing instruments and cards, small tablet pocket that doubles as a hydration sleeve and a strap-mounted mobile device pocket with headphone port.

The brand labels reference a short-lived logo used between 1983 and 1984 (produced as an interim design when moving factories). At the time the logo was WHITE and BROWN, but for this project the old woven label has been re-configured in WHITE and BLACK. Paying homage to GREGORY’s rich 40 year heritage of innovation, functionality and quality, Takayuki Fujii has applied a retrospective touch to two cutting edge designs. The COMPASS 30 RETRO and SKETCH 8 RETRO feature a 90’s inspired color palette, comprising five unique colorways chosen to represent each of the five Tokyo select shops carrying the collection. BLUE · PURPLE (Pilgrim Surf+Supply), SPECTRA (ISETAN MEN'S), FUSCHIA (UNITED ARROWS & SONS), BLACK (H BEAUTY & YOUTH), COYOTE (vendor). All colors will be available at vendor Nakameguro, COVERCHORD and GREGORY Harajuku only.
