Life's a trip. One long strange trip if you're lucky! Filled with travel, tales and titillation. We need 'everything in its right place' as the great Thom Yorke said. So packing the perfect carry for day trips is key. Meet the Defender Day Tripper. The best defense against overpacking misery! The Defender Day Tripper is equal parts Seal Team 6 and preppy look. Bad ass meets ‘Pardon me sir’. For this version we've chosen the finest Horween Tumbled Dublin Leather we could find from Chicago’s century old iconic Horween Leather Tannery. The bag is hand-crafted by our master leather workers with hand-skived leather to give it a truly smart and highly rugged, finished look. Who knew that was happening in Chicago?!
A note about the leather:
This Horween Tumbled Dublin Leather is wonderful in it's rawness and aged look. Horween throws the hides into a near 20 foot tall tumbling machine that's akin to a huge, industrial dryer. The result: A leather that looks like it's been through 15 rodeos, a couple of bar fights and is wanted in 3 states by the authorities. It's not a perfectly polished, unblemished looking leather. And that's what we love about it! If this leather were a person it might wear a patch over it's left eye and have a flask tucked inside it's rough and tumbled jacket pocket. If you're not so tough yourself, this bag just might give people the impression you are which is a pretty badass side benefit to carrying a dope bag!
A note about fit:
Your iPad or like-sized tablet will sleep soundly ensconced in closed-cell foam technology sourced from an industry leading foam-technology company. The inside is lined with 6.5 oz. Autumn Plaid-Yarn Dyed TexWex 100% Duck Cotton Awesomeness. A Horween Leather strap with distressed brass snap keeps your tech safe, snug and sound. Now look at the removable strap as the attention to detail doesn’t stop there: durable 4000lb Mil spec webbing with military grade metal hardware, Horween leather details + metal swivel clips keep things tight on the go. A large pocket with a U.S. sourced 100% Water Proof YKK zipper keeps things organized on the back and is great for quick storage. Defend against overpacking and enjoy the trip!
