I'll keep it short and to the point:
- Great, rugged material; it's built to last many, many miles.
- Ample space inside the bag (i.e., 24 oz crowler, rolled up Houdinin jacket, repair kit, hat, headphones, smashed PB&J, etc.)
- Smaller zipped pouch allows for easy access to often needed items (i.e., keys, facemask, Clif bar, bikelights when dismounted)
- Water-resistant lining in the pouch interior, I've ridden multiple times in the rain with this bag, dry as my whistle as I write this...
- Boxy, flat body allows for plenty of cargo while planting it firmly against your body, this is ideal because I hate a sloppy bag that bounces around.
- No interior loops for key chain
- No daisy chain on the outside (maybe above the logo?) for placing rearlight when riding. But I knew that when I purchased it, I have eyes.
- Unless you are an absolute giant on two wheels, the waist strap is very long and will hang out as slack once buckled and cinched. I'm not sure why they were so generous with the webbing they used for the strap. I guess I just worry about it getting caught on side-mirrors, doors, e-scooter handles...
- Expensive. But, you're buying a bag for at least a decade and you'll have Chrome's 365 TO LIFE guarantee.
I bought this bag a few months ago and itï¿½s been pretty handy! I got neon orange because itï¿½s my favorite color, and also to give me more visibility when Iï¿½m on the road. It may not have been the best choice because itï¿½s gotten some stains on it, although I havenï¿½t really tried washing it yet. The woven texture also collects a lot of dog hairs. But the bag is sturdy, comfy, and a great size. The straps fit me but needed to be secured with safety pins so that they didnï¿½t slip out of adjustment.
I tried several bags for an upcoming trip to carry rain gear and sneakers and this was the only bag that could do it with its minimal footprint. The buckle is big but the arrangement of the bag was such that I forgot I was wearing it.
