Being strapped for cash happens. We get that. But should that mean you can’t have the finer things in life? Hell no! The word ‘strapped’ isn’t always synonymous with ‘stripped’. Take the BMW 1 Series for example; it has the same basic underpinnings as the 3 Series. The 1 is a spectacular thrill ride. Introducing the Strapped Series. Strapped is the same rugged US Military contractor sourced M35 'Deuce and a Half' 22 oz vinyl/canvas truck tarpaulin material and construction as our Recon series. In fact, the Strapped was designed to keep cost down by colliding the best of the Recon features and simply subtracting the AustriAlpin Cobra quick release buckles. The 2” plastic quick release buckles are the same buckles other great bag brands use, as they’re easy to operate and sturdy. Course if you wanna add Cobra buckles we ain’t gonna stop ya!
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 Strapped is hand-crafted on the gritty west side of Chicago using industrial machines and techniques learned from disassembling vintage military bags. Inside you'll be greeted by a 15" dedicated computer section with a couple of ample sized pockets for added gear and gadgets. You’ll notice an extremely comfortable handle on Strapped that extends the length of the bag for added support. In fact, it extends down both sides as well giving added strength, structure and character to the bag. And under the flap Strapped has a great piece of well thought out strapping for added organization. Strap one on for size and welcome to Defy.
