Wonder how many of the urban hipsters inhabiting Chicago’s Bucktown area (in the north of the city) know that many years ago it was an immigrant goat herder’s paradise replete with open fields as far as the eye could see? Gets the mind pondering, indeed. There’s a visual: modern day bearded goat herding hipsters herding, and being hip, all at the same time. A true collision of the unexpected. A bit like our Bucktown pack. The first from our Chicago series.

M35 US military troop transport truck tarpaulin vinyl/canvas material outside, 500 Denier Cordura inside. Our 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 and 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 will 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!

Designed to be the ultimate daily commuter/carry pack, the Bucktown boasts two large, mega easy to access YKK Water Proof zippered compartments. The outer compartment is perfect for small and large storage alike, with double pockets and pen organization that are all hand-crafted using military grade thread and triple stitched at the joints for added durability. A solid steel matte black gun clip is a valet you can trust giving your car keys to. Zip up the outer compartment and check out the back one. This compartment has enough storage space and possibilities to make a modern day goat herding hipster blush: Sporting 500 Denier Cordura material which adds strength and durability and a computer section that is fully lined with thick closed cell foam technology.

The computer section is the first of it’s kind from DEFY as it’s not only designed for 17" & 15” MacBook Pro’s but also for most other computers of this size, or utilize it for added folders, tablets, etc. Now onto the side pockets: Perfect for water or beer bottles and each has a solid matte black steel D ring for hanging a bottle opener, carabiner, keys or whatever the hell you want on it. The back of the bag, bottom and shoulder straps are fully padded with your back in mind and boast more thick closed cell foam technology for comfort. All hand-crafted a stone’s throw away from Bucktown by people obsessed with hand-crafting happy. The Bucktown pack: Goat herder tested. Hipster approved.

Carryology 2016 Bucktown Review

* Please note: DEFY has since updated & addressed 2 main areas for improvement in this review:

1) We've removed the leather pieces on the shoulder straps and added more comfortable fabric.

2) To take away zipper-head noise we added ParaCord pulls.

PROUDLY HAND-CRAFTED IN THE USA
