Guys love gear like women love shoes. It’s just a flippin’ fact. DEFY’s Gear Kit is an uber simple remedy for that. Rugged 22 oz. Defense Department grade vinyl/canvas military truck tarpaulin exterior meets soft, easy to wash and light as hell military-grade Nylon Ripstop parachute material. M35 Military truck tarpaulin vinyl/canvas is the same heavy duty tarpaulin used to protect US service members in theater today. 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. While it's tougher than the vast majority of tarp material used by other bag companies with enough beating, use and life it can eventually show signs of wear. Those wear marks are a badge of honor! It's military tough as hell for sure, but nothing's indestructible even though it may look it! The Gear Kit is hand-crafted on the gritty west side of Chicago using industrial machines, threads, and techniques learned from disassembling vintage military bags. The YKK zipper makes it easy to open with a vintage, distressed look. Finally there’s a DEFY way to pack your Caran D’Ache Ecridor fountain pen, J. Herbin fountain pen ink and your GoPro. Gear junkies unite!
PROUDLY HAND-CRAFTED IN THE UNITED STATES.

This is a fabulous gear kit bag: best materials, cool look, and awesome workmanship. I wish the kit came in a slightly smaller and slightly larger version as well, but Defy has done a great job with sizing overall. It's the best gear kit bag out there that I have seen.

A great bag for your gear, whatever it may be. Love the heavy-duty smooth opening/closing zipper and the lining is great...it's going to be my go to travel bag for iPod, cords & cables, passport & such. This bad boy will hold a LOT of gear, and looks/feels fantastic. The only drawback is now I want more of them to stash things in! I liked it so much I finally bought a DEFY weekender bag I had my eye on- they make a great combo!

I got this to hold power supplies and cords as a simple organizer in my bag. This is the perfect size. It wasn't too big but wasn't so small that you hold the bigger power supplies for my macbook etc. It is a great material and has a heavy zipper and holds its shape well. I will pick up a few more of these for various things I am sure. Money well spent.
