Perfect for the rainy Northwest

Review by twentythousandroads

I bought this back a few years back, and use it daily for my commute to and from work. During the winter of 2015-16 here in Portland (one of the wettest on record), I still used it to carry my Macbook Pro, papers, etc. and the bag kept everything 100% dry, every single day.

Durability is great, fits well, looks good, worth every penny.

Non better!

Review by Philip

I've had plenty of backpacks and bags in my life and there is no better bag then this one. the quality is amazing, the details are top notch, while it is heavy - it is heavy for a reason! I have been caught in a couple of heavy rain storms while bike 3+ miles and both times everything inside the bag was bone dry! I will never look for another bag!

Great Effin' Bag

Review by Duncan

I've had a Metropolis Messenger Bag for about a year now and it has never failed me once. It's big enough to where it can hold a lot of stuff and at the same time, doesn't give that excessive-bulky rucksack look. Whenever I ride my bike, the bag remains rigid on my body and doesn't weigh me down to a single side. It's also easy to remove with the seatbelt-style buckle that I just have to bring around my head and re-attach it when I'm free. The only bad thing about this bag would be the shoulder strap because it is fashioned in only one position and I cannot sling it around the other shoulder when pain begins to seep in. With that said, I still love the bag and don't plan on parting with it for a long time.

This is a HUGE bag

Review by Robert

I travel a lot and usually have 2 laptops and all the extras along with a small projector and all the cabling. Last convention I went to I packed 2 15 inch laptops, 2 mice, all the cabling and 2 changes of clothing. Only real complaint I have is the padding on the main strap could of been extended a little more for my liking, but over all I love the bag.

Excellent Bag

Review by Falco3030

I have had mine for over 4 years now and it has been all over the country, vacations, road trips, work, and more. i had to replace the snap clasp but that was my fault otherwise this is a bulletproof bag. Just when I think I filled it up there is more space, I have placed a CPAP, laptop, tablet, two bottles of water a change of clothing, shoes and all anicilliary equipment for electronics and still there was space for food and beverage pack.

Bought my son in law and son one each and they can't put them down either.

Keep it up Chrome no China products please!!!

Best bag NA

Review by minty

I've had my Metropolis for over 4 years now, even through rough times it's still held up, everything works like the day it was new! Black with White Stripe, the white stripe gets a little dirty, but cleaning it takes about 20 seconds. Best bag I've ever owned.

10 years, still kicking.

Review by b.

Bought a metropolis in 2006 after debating between it and the citizen. At 6'5", I'm glad I went with the metropolis. The bag hugs my body very well. I've been all over the world with just this as my luggage. It can fit a change of clothes, computer, toiletries, necessary tools, extra snacks and a bottle for water. It'll haul two weeks worth of groceries for a single person, or fill it with ice and good beer for summertime porch barbecues.

Built like a tank and stupid big

Review by retrofuture

The fact that it's made in chico makes a big difference. the quality is much better than my soyuz. I use it everyday on my bike and not a single sign of wear after three months. a dedicated u lock pocket would have been nice though.

Straight up workhorse. Extremely large bag.

Almost 10 years strong, same bag!

Review by Chris

If I'm not mistaken, I've had this same bag for nearly a decade. It's gotten me through college, parties, grocery shopping, cross country road trips, and most of it all, whilst bike riding, rain or snow. Not once have I had to have this bag repaired, no punctures, no stitching, nothing. Highly recommended bag that's guaranteed for life.

THIS IS A BIG BAG MAN

Review by Big Jon

Think you need a bag? Like a really big bag? This is it. Don't look somewhere else. This. This is it. Be warned though, if you plan on using this for school to haul all your stuff like I do, books and notebooks only take up half of the bags size. You'll be left with a lot of extra room that can turn pretty uncomfortable on your back if the books shift while you are riding. Stick some extra shorts and a shirt and you should be solid. This bag is what I would call, lit.

Built to last, these bags kick ass.

Review by Verbal Ham Radio

This is my second Chrome messenger. I have had the Citizen for about 7 years now. Was just not big enough and I always wanted the Met. It was on sale so I swooped it up. This things is great for all my Go Pro gear and mic equips I use on shoots and big enough to take 3-4 days worth of clothes to travel. Love these bags and they are built to last. If you buy one, you will never regret it. I will drfinitely be plugging Chrome's brand, stores and site on my next podcast!

Great bag. I'd buy it again.

Review by Kc

I got this bag 4 yrs ago after a accident destroyed the one I was riding with. I went to City Bikes in Adams Morgan (Washington,DC) looking for another bag when I saw the Metropolis. I've had it ever since. It's my goto carry.It's strong, weather resistant and comfortably no matter how I stuff it.

Just speaking the truth.

Review by Dave

Have owned this bag for ten years. Bike commuted daily for years from Golden to Arvada in Denver as a teacher. Traveled with it more than I can remember due to the beverage cart. Now use it daily as my work bag after my short drive (sorry for the petro use). Still lookin good and going strong. Tried a Kirov for comfort, but went back to the basics. Thanks.

Great, Reliable, Bag

Review by DC

Bought the grey and black bag, I love it! The grey is reflective and has a metallic look to it that does not show in the photos.
