The Chicago-based Defy Manufacturing Company occupies a very emphatic space upon the philosophical spectrum. That is to say one of sheer impenitent defiance - hence their name. Born out of the frustrations of their founder, Chris Tag, and his dismal foray through the advertising industry, Defy is more than a labor of love. It is pure unadulterated passion. And that zeal is evident in their products. Designed and manufactured in the United States, their bags, accessories, and apparel are of the utmost in utility, inspired design, and authenticity.
