Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing rocks! I really like this thing! I've had a Chrome Citizen messenger for a while, but it was just too big for me personally so I never used it. Switched to a normal backpack for everyday type stuff. However, I was having some annoyances because I would often go out on a short bike ride and only take my tablet/bike lock/phone/jacket. So I would have a large backpack with only a few things in it. So I saw this and picked it up. It's really excellent and minimal. It fits exactly like a Chrome messenger bag, just smaller. I saw it a few times but was thinking it was a fanny pack or something, so never looked into it further. But, nope, it's essentially a Chrome Citizen (or similar) with a small bag. Fits just the same. Inside it easily holds my Microsoft Surface 3. It shouldn't have any trouble with something as large as the smaller version of an Apple Macbook Air and possibly the larger 13" version. I don't think it could fir a normal laptop though. But really it's great for the typical quick trips, holds a few things, isn't bulky. I've found it to be nice when traveling as well for a way to hold things while walking around a city. It's not waterproof or anything like the other Chrome messenger bags, but it sheds water really well and has nice zippers. I think light rain is no problem. And of course typical Chrome quality that seems to make their products last a decade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would be perfect with more pockets Sharp looking bag made of quality materials. Seat beat mechanism looks cool and very functional. Replaced my Timbuk2 messenger bag as my everyday bag just because it looks better. The only thing that would make this better is more zippered pockets. Either internal or on the back side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in size, secure, water-resistant I use this daily but purchased it for when I walk. No complaints. I wish I could find more bags that wear in this way (not purse, backpack or messenger; very secure). This is my second Chrome bag and they have both proven that you get what you pay for.
