DetailsWe made our first messenger bag over 15 years ago.. We needed a quick-release buckle for getting a fully loaded bag off quickly. We didn't have money to make our own buckle, so we salvaged a seatbelt buckle from the local auto yard and an icon was born. To maximize durability and weatherproofness, every Mini Metro is made twice. The inside liner is made with military-grade, 18-oz truck tarpaulin. The outside is made with abrasion-resistant, 1000-denier military grade nylon fabric.

- Perfect smaller option
I have a couple chrome bags and this one is my favorite. I've been commuting with the Citizen for a year and I finally decided I wanted something smaller. This is a perfect choice for a commute to work. I can easily fit my macbook pro, bike lock, water bottle + more. If you're looking for the perfect day bag that's not too big this is it. On a side note, you can fit over 24 cans of beer in it.
- Good bag, but too small!
Great bag good quality, its just too small! I deliver sandwiches for Jimmy John's on my bike. When I have to take 2+ deliveries it gets pretty cramped. That's why I'm getting a metropolis. I have the tactical laptop sleeve and it fits super snug into the bag, barely big enough for it (13" macbook pro) Good thing I don't have the 15"! Satisfied with the bag, I just would recommend a bigger one.
- right size, right shoulder the right bag.
This bag, like all chrome bags, is totally indestructible. Really great craftsmanship and high quality items. I've had a lot of Chrome bags and they never disappoint. I chose this one as it had 2 features I really wanted. First, the size was more inline with what I wanted. I basically wanted to carry my 13" macbook. I added the laptop sleeve and everything fits perfectly and is protected really well. Second, the ability to choose which side the harness would shoulder. I'm left handed and when carrying a messenger bag I want it slung over my right shoulder, not my left. If you're left-handed you know the pain is real. This bag solved that - the harness is padded in the right direction (pun intended), the buckle works the proper way - everything works and looks as it should - just on over the right shoulder and not the left shoulder like 90% of the population wants.
In short, it's yet-another great Chrome product.
Everyone at my school has a Chrome bag and I thought they looked cool so I bought this one off of my friend for about $40. Great decision. It's virtually indestructable and with its 20 liters of space it can nearly fit the kitchen sink. I would definitely recommend this bag to anyone because it certainly pays for itself so you know it's worth the price. Perfect product.
