Defiant Bikepacking and Cargo

Squeezed into our ‘tiny’ shop with more than a dozen industrial sewing machines, fabric, hardware, and much more – you can find us upstairs above the ‘tasting room’ for the Roaring Fork Brewery in Carbondale Colorado. We specialize in sewn solutions for bikepacking and cargo with a major focus on long tail cargo bike bags, and zipperless framebags

Defiant Pack is named after Glenwood Springs’ former town name: Defiance. (Yes we are actually based 15miles upriver in Carbondale). Defiant Pack is a new brand name (started in 2014) to support our growing demand for custom bikepacking gear. We first started producing bags in 2012 as UpSki (maker of equipment for Wind Mountaineering… windpowered snow skiing uphill). 4 years now… wow time flies!!
