While sometimes convenient, standard messenger bags can be large and uncomfortable. And honestly, you rarely carry 2,000 cubic inches' worth of stuff on your bike. That's why Chrome made the Mini Buran. Its 915-cubic-inch capacity is plenty for 95% of your commutes, and you won't have a bag the size of your cousin flapping around behind you while you ride.The Mini Buran is made with tough, waterproof 1000 denier Cordura. The liner is 600 denier truck tarpaulin. The integrated, padded sleeve fits a 13-inch laptop. There are also plenty of pockets to keep you organized. The bag also features Chrome's cross-body shoulder strap with signature seatbelt buck closure. Chrome even included mounting loops for carabiners or lights.
Generally when we think of micro-management we think of overbearing bosses and helicopter-parents, but once in a while we spot the good kind. In this case, it's the Chrome Mini Metro Welterweight Messenger Bag. This compact messenger bag manages all of your gear in a micro-sized package, loading you up with accessory pockets that prevent you from digging through your bag on a search for your phone or chap stick, and just enough space to load up your essentials. The main compartment can offer a home to your laptop and jacket, and front pockets secure your U-lock, wallet and phone. The Mini Metro Welterweight copies its heavier sibling, the Mini Metro, when it comes to pockets and stature, however it sheds weight in materials, still striving for city-worthy durability and weatherproof construction. Instead of heavy 1050D nylon, the Welterweight line sports the leaner and meaner 500 x 200D nylon, which is still remarkably durable, but without the weight. Inside its lined with 300D tarpaulin that's completely weatherproof for keeping your contents dry. And when the rainy days are grey and dreary, extra-reflective TPU tarpaulin accents illuminate under headlights to keep you visible to motorists through downtown traffic.
