Catch em off guard. Repel the attack. Hell, even the boardroom needs someone with some stones. That’s where the Defender comes in. The Defender is equal parts Seal Team 6 and preppy look. Bad ass meets ‘Pardon me sir’. Uber strong military 20 oz vinyl truck tarpaulin collides with Chicago’s century old iconic Austin Calf Horween Leather. It's thick, matte, rubbery feel makes for an incredibly durable bag material which with use over time starts to soften & wear nicely taking on a different patina and character. The Defender is hand-crafted on the gritty west side of Chicago using industrial machines, threads, and techniques learned from disassembling vintage military bags. The entire length of the bag is finished by our master leather workers with hand-skived leather to give it a truly smart and highly rugged, finished look. DEFY integrates $60 worth of 1” AustriAlpin Cobra Quick Release buckles for good measure. The same buckles used by Special Forces in theater today. Your computer will sleep soundly ensconced in closed-cell foam technology sourced from an industry leading foam-technology company. The inside is lined with water-resistant black Cordura material and even more Horween Leather accents and trim, with distressed brass snaps that keep your computer snug and safe. Now look at the removable strap as the attention to detail doesn’t stop here: durable 4000lb Mil spec webbing with military grade metal hardware and Horween leather details + metal clips give others the impression you mean business. A large pocket with a YKK distressed brass zipper keeps things tight on the back and is great for on the go storage. Defenders ready, are you?

Plenty of room in this workcase for carrying the mobile office setup! Will definitely fit a 13" laptop easily (sleeve also, if you are super protective), chargers, files and paperwork, and small electronics and supplies. I think the depth of the internal pockets is perfect for the laptop chargers, portable batteries, small notebooks out there. The outer pocket is great for toiletries or grooming items. The only quirk is in regard to the two internal pen holders; pen clips can hook onto the pen holder and allow for quick access, but if you store a tablet stylus, pencil, or non-clipped item there it becomes difficult to pull up.
Great overall, though, I love the styling, leather accents on the strap and case, and bolstering of the bottom (when full, can stand on its own easily, won't fall over). This is all business, but is crafted with supreme care and is intended to be the LAST work bag you ever purchase!!! Mark T on 5th Aug 2015
