We had a few people tell us they'd love to see a variation of our Horween OxBlood Leather Defender that would integrate all leather straps on the front instead of the black fabric webbing. We finally got around to manufacturing a very small batch and couldn't be happier with the outcome! It was no small feat as the Cobras weren't designed to be used with leather straps, but our team rose to the challenge. This Defender is a true life-piece and a great natural extension of the rest of the Defender crew!
Catch em off guard. Repel the attack. You know 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’.DEFY is hand-crafting this OxBlood series from Chicago’s century old iconic Horween Leather Tannery. It takes an entire side of Horween leather just to create 1 Defender.
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. Leather from Horween just gets better with time, changing its patina as you use it and developing a character as it gets banged around. We've integrated $60 worth of 1” AustriAlpin™ COBRA® Quick Release buckles for good measure. These are 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 1,000 Denier Cordura 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 there: durable 4000 lb Mil spec webbing with military grade metal hardware, Horween leather details + metal clips let em know you mean business. A large pocket with a U.S. sourced YKK distressed brass zipper keeps things tight on the back and is great for on the go storage. This bag is the perfect defense against fast fashion. Buy it once. Keep it for Life.
