If you plan on getting away for the weekend, why not do it in style. Defy Bags out of my hometown of Chicago, Illinois, brings you their R&R Weekender. This bag is said to be inspired by Israeli Defense Forces standard issue field duffles, but no, it’s not standard issue. It should be perfect for whatever ‘mission’ you decide to tackle this Friday-Sunday. The grey/black coloring make this truly a mans carry and the 18oz. Martexin Waxed Canvas twill exterior provides ballistic strength. The interior is handcrafted from soft black canvas and the closure uses an imported heavy-gauge $22/piece RiRi Aquazip, water-resistance zipper. The adjustable and removable shoulder strap uses solid steel commissioned from a US Military supply company. This bag is far cooler than my current weekend bag and all the extra pockets would really come in handy. Aside from the imported zipper, the bag is proudly made right here in the USA. Head on over to Defy Bags and take a peek.
