    I got one of these about a year ago. It's a bit on the masculine side (umm...I'm a girl, it was a gift). I get tons of comments, all positive, all from guys. I like the fact that it's basically one big big bag you can throw stuff in. The seat belt style buckle is cool but honestly just adds weight, so it's all about the cool factor. After a year's regular use, I find the interior rubber stuff is starting to flake off a bit. There is no padding, which is ok with me but something to be aware of. I find it only works for me if I use it over one shoulder (my right), not the other, due to the way it's constructed. But, I'm more of a backpack girl, that may be the norm with messenger bags. Since I only carry it from my car to a building, not an issue for me.

    My old bag was an Aerostich bag that I used for a good six years. Great product, so this one came with high expectations. I just wanted to try something a bit different and with more organizer pockets and options to it.

    The differences are that the Chrome bag has multiple pockets and organizer features as well as a padded laptop sleeve internally. The Aerostich is just a basic open bag. I prefer the Chrome design for my uses.

    The Chrome bag strap is designed a bit less flexibly but more purposefully. You have to wear the bag high on your back for the strap padding to work well and the load to be evenly distributed. I've grown to really like this. I also find it quite easy to swing the bag from back to front, which I use constantly when boarding various transit systems getting up and down and packing into crowded cars.

    If you primarily carry a messenger slung low as a shoulder bag, you may not like the strap design of this bag. It's truly designed to be worn high and snug and it does that perfectly.

    The seat-belt like buckle on the strap is really neat too. It makes it easy to just pop the buckle and set the bag down. I'm a really tall guy with long arms and lifting a messenger over my head to take it off is a pain so I use the quick release all the time. It's a very heavy car seatbelt type buckle, it's not going to slip or go anywhere.

    I recently bought this bag used on ebay, and so far I like it. Other reviews have highly criticized it, but I don't see why. The main compartment is enough to carry a few books (or packages if you actually use it as a bike messenger, its original purpose). I like the laptop compartment, my 15.6" laptop fits like a glove, although on Chrome's website they SAY it can fit a 17" one. Another reviewer said the two side-by-side compartments on the front are too small to fit much, but I can fit my computer brick charger and two other device chargers in them, so I find them very useful. Lastly there's an organization pocket between the other two, which I've found fits all my little things well enough (pens, cell phone, etc.). Oh, and there's a document pocket on the back that I think I'll use often. I'd say I'll wait and see on the build quality of this bag, but the person I bought it from had it for 2 years and I see no visible wear from it. Overall, this seems to be a great bag.

    I purchased this bag (and am stuck with it since the Real Cyclist refuses to accept returns) because I read glowing reviews of Chrome's products on various sites. I don't think this bag lives up to the hype Chrome receives. It certainly does not justify the high price.

    Build Quality:
    This is probably the bags only redeeming feature. Chrome bags are supposed to have un-matched quality and construction. I found the Buran's to be ok. The materials are solid but the bag was riddled with stitching defects on the straps and seams. The main buckle is solid and sturdy, but the remaining clips are all flimsy plastic I doubt will last more than a year.

    The main pouch is sadly just one giant compartment. At the price point I was expecting at least some ability to organize the contents. There are two small pouches on the front, but the do not hold very much. There is a sleeve in the main compartment for a laptop but it is a bit narrow. A laptop would need to be under 14" and fairly thin to fit easily. This sleeve is also paper thin. It will provide absolutely no protection for a notebook.

    My biggest complaint about the Buran. This thing is really uncomfortable. The strap can only be worn over the left shoulder. Not a huge deal, but its not something you could tell from the photos. Try as I might, I cannot find a comfortable way to position the strap. When the bag is filled up the weight bears down on the bottom most corner as you would expect. The problem is that this corner is perfectly positioned to use all that weight to dig into my tailbone. If I tighten it up enough to shift the pressure point it starts choking me and chaffing my neck terribly.

    Size: One SizeColor: Black/Black/Black
    I'm not sure why one of the other reviewers here says that this is basically just "one big bag you can throw stuff into" because this is actually one of the few messenger bags you can get that isn't just composed of one big compartment (I hear the MW Rummy and Timbuktu Especial is also quite good in this regard). There are actually loads of pockets on the front, in the middle, and a zippered pocket in the back, in addition to the large main compartment you can throw stuff into. There is also a laptop sleeve built into the rear of the main compartment, but unless you have a giant 15"+ laptop, this sleeve will most likely too big. Unlike bike messengers, most people who use these types of bags for commuting will likely carry lots of small items, pens, etc. that require organization into smaller compartments, and for this reason, this has got to be one of the best messenger bag for bike-commuters. The broad padded strap is as comfortable as messenger bag straps go. If I'm carrying more than my daily commuting load, I'll opt for my rack+pannier. As for the buckle, you'll either love it or hate it. I for one think it's very convenient and use it every time I take my bag off. You do need watch out for where the male end of the buckle falls when you hit the latch, since it's basically a small but heavy piece of metal attached to a seat belt strap that'll swing and hit whatever's immediately behind/next to you.
