1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Custom made wax canvas: comes with original tags, noting that this bag is "1 of 1". The AustriAlpin buckles are truly awesome, the most satisfying click you can find. This bag will last forever, and the grey Martexin wax canvas will develop even more patina with age.

    This is a custom made large edition of this bag: http://defybags.com/collections/bags/products/recon-grey-wax-canvas

    Almost never used only because I stopped commuting with my computer and switched to a briefcase. Can definitely fit a 15" Macbook Pro, I think it can even fit a 17". Because it was larger and custom, original price came out to $330. Yours for $275 -> $250 -> $225. Paypal available, shipped promptly.

    From Defy's description:

    Search the field. Survey the terrain. Or hell, just take it to the corner coffee shop. The Recon Wax Edition is a suitable tool for any mission. We're colliding 18 oz. Martexin Original Wax Twill with 2" imported solid steel and brass AustriAlpin Cobra quick release buckles used by U.S. Special Forces. Each inch of this twill canvas material shows signs it has a personality and ruggedness all it's own. DEFY searched far and wide to find the sturdiest, most amazing and durable wax canvas on the market today.

    Sourced from a NJ textile company creating quality waxed fabrics since 1838 this material has an amazing feel and rugged durability. If you've never touched or felt Martexin Original Wax, you're missing out. Unlike other bags made of nylon or cotton, the waxed canvas is waterproofed to prevent staining and moisture from spills should drip right off. Double stitched at all natural stress points, the thick Martexin Original Wax Canvas is designed to endure frequent use, and over time the surface of the bag develops a beautiful patina as it gets banged around. Best yet...it has a very light feeling carry weight. Drop it. Kick it. Or toss it from the cargo hold at 20,000 ft over hostile territory; Recon's military spec stitching and hand-crafted in Chicago attitude can take it.
