Well-made but too small

Review by Jimi Two Shoes

I reallllllly wanted to love this bag, but I am sending it back. The construction is top-notch. And, if you need a very small bag for a compact camera and one lens, this might work for you. For me, it was simply too small. Just a bit bigger- like half way between where it is now and a messenger bag- would have been perfect for me. And I agree with others about the top flap not hinging open widely enough. You really have to dig through it and it's a pain. And the top mesh compartment needs to be zippered. I hope Chrome makes some adjustments and offers a bigger bag in the future. So close!


Well made, well designed, and effective compact camera bag

Review by Gmate

Scooped this bag up when I saw it on sale. I like the details such as the built in lens cloth and movable interior divider. Works with a small dslr but better suited for a smaller mirrorless. Snugly fits a nikon 7100 with 35mm lens. When biking I noticed that when I'm in my drops the bag tends to slip to my front, but it's not a huge deal. Prefer this bag to carrying a larger backpack when biking around with a camera.


perfect for riding and snapping.

Review by Alexander

great piece for the pedaling selfie snapper.

i carry my fuji x100s, extra battery, wallet, keys and a 3oz flask in mine. it seems un balanced with the buckle, but once it's loaded up it works well.

the bag is really easy to spin and open while riding. i wear it as a sling or a hip pack - both work well. i like everything about this bag and the secret microfiber cloth is a perfect touch. i'm yet to get it wet; but it seems safe enough.


Awesome Bag

Review by Zoe

Best compact camera bag on the market hands down.


Great bag not enough space for my personal compact slr needs.

Review by Rtect

I really loved the quality of this bag and I wanted to keep it! By far best bag material, strap action, and aesthetic appeal. But I agree that the hinge action on the zipper doesn't open enough to open completely. I have a nex5r e-mount compact slr and I wanted to be able to easily slide my camera with lens into it with a spare lens next to it. I ended up trying to jam the camera in and realized I need probably 1" in more in width and 2-3" more in length. Extra space and better zipper opening would make me pay 10$ more and I would have my personal perfect bag- you guys make amazing bags!


Sling fanny pack

Review by Amos

This is basically a fanny pack worn over a shoulder. This picture here shows it over the left shoulder, but it is not "made" for one shoulder or another. Put it on whichever shoulder you want.


Just Awesome

Review by Jesus

I actually carry my Sony a65 DSLR with a single lens or two fixed lenses and room for an extra battery and some SD cards. Everything is snug inside and not all dslr will fit since this is aimed more at compact cameras like the a7(r). The bag itself is nicely built inside an out with the zipper being tight making water nearly impossible to get in. Its stylish and a great way to make you go and just shoot with out all your gear.


perfect for the new sony a7r

Review by Eli

I just got rid of my SLR and needed something that was smaller. This fits a Sony a7r perfectly you could easily add another lens, battery, remote, charger, other small essential items no problem. It feels really secure just like my other chrome bags, and is just as bombproof. Thanks again for making exactly what I need.


If only...!

Review by Brian Anthony

This bag looks great. Would compliment my TT sling20 perfectly! I'd order now if they had a left handed option. Oh well...


Good bag!

Review by Jason

My chrome messenger bag goes everywhere with me whether i'm on my bike or not. Due to this I did not hesitate to pick up this bag for my OMD E-M5. The divider is moveable to accomodate different setups. Its not going to hold all of your lenses but it will hold the basics especially for a micro 4/3 camera. Durable, weatherproof, and discrete.

I have two gripes the first is I love how the zipper to open the top is on the inside (see pictures 3 & 4). However I wish they would have included a little more slack at the 'hinge' so the bag would stay open easier when trying to get stuff out of it. Also this makes the mesh pocket on the inside of the lid kind of useless in my opinion anything you put in there (lens cap, etc) could easily flip out because it's such a shallow pocket and you're constantly flipping the lid up/over to get stuff out of the bag. If this was a zlppered mesh pocked that lined the entire inside lid flap it would be better.


LOVE this bag

Review by boba

so very cool - perfect for carrying around a few small 35mm cams or one w/several lenses. perfect for those days where i don't want to lug around my larger bag. *please* make a right - shoulder version (i'm waiting for this to purchase)
