We love us some whiskey at DEFY. Anyone who knows us will attest to that. Mostly small batch whiskey. Part of what we love is the care that goes into doing such small, precious runs. It goes against the grain of the expected 'more is more', mass produced production that's become all too prevalent in this country.
We decided to do some small batches of this simple tote after finding an amazing military 'bread bag' that inspired us. We're calling this the 'Batch Tote'. Why Batch? Because we fully expect to do small runs of this bag in various finishes, then not repeat them.
You know how we make a tote tougher? We go Ballistic on it! Then throw in some Hand-Selected Horween Austin Calf Leather love. After that double up the leather thickness on the handle so you know it's ready for whatever. This batch is Hand-Crafted from some of our favorite materials: Horween Austin Calf Leather, sourced from Chicago, and MIL-SPEC Ballistic Nylon sourced from a military contractor. Because we care about quality more than we care about breathing, we decided to double up the leather on the handles, just in case you decide to max out your Batch. The interior has a zippered pocket to keep keys and gear away from prying eyes, and a simple snap closes the bag. I was born in Ohio, and was surprised as I traveled through Europe how many guys carried totes. Same thing with Asia. Come on dudes from America: Man up and realize you're man enough to rock the Batch! Ladies, you're definitely woman enough to ;)
It's a great, light carry that you forget is even there. This Batch is in the shop and ready to ship!
