Let's face it, there are just certain places we all find ourselves in where we wish we had a few extra things in tow, but not so much we'd need to lug a full bag or backpack around. Places like: Hiking, concerts and traveling just to name a few. It would be safe to say we've received well over a hundred emails over the years requesting that DEFY come out with such a bag. Not a messenger. Not a backpack. But a Hip Bag. A bag that's small. Nimble. Zippered. One where you could simply fasten it around your waste and go. People said they wanted the bag to be tough and rugged...not your average 'Fanny Pack'. Well, thanks to our School of the Art Institute Chicago intern Xinda 'Parker' Wang bringing this rad design to our design team, we're full up in production on The Parker Hip Pack.
The Parker Pack utilizes our dope, expensive and extremely hard to find M35 Military Truck Tarpaulin that's a great material for added protection from the elements (and added protection from looking like you're carrying your Uncle Steve's silly Fanny Pack he got at the airport travel shop). 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 incredible 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 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. Please don't think this material won't wear on the edges and corners with use; it will! It's not made of diamonds ;)
The Parker also has adjustable MIL-SPEC webbing and an imported $30, 2" AustriAlpin Cobra Quick-Release Buckle that holds over a thousand pounds for good measure. Simply pull on the oversized matte black steel D ring, adjust, and one size fits all. This pack is extremely versatile as you can wear it around your waist, over your shoulder or cross body style in the front or back. It's two designated easy to access YKK Vislon Zippered compartments give you enough carrying space to make you feel like you're carrying a bag that's larger, without all the bulk and effort. The Parker Pack is in production now and ready to ship in 3-4 weeks.
