Just right!
My daily hump bag commuting to Uni on my bike. Books, iPadPro, lunch, files/papers, Clicker, moleskin...everything fits.

Fantastic bag
This is a great bag. It fits nicely in my wold basket off my rear rack. Then I carry it when I go in places. It can hold quite a bit for the bags size. I love putting my wallet in the zipper pocket nearest me for security. You can't go wrong with this bag.

Best Daily Bag for Biking to Work
Hurting my shoulder at present (previous injury) and came to Chrome today to add a phone holster and ask about an opposite shoulder strap, BUT....this has quickly become my go to bag. As a backpack biking queen for many years, i was amazing at how well this thing stays put. Apart from bending over to tie a shoe, it doesn't bounce like a backpack will, nor does it slide side to side like every other messenger (not from Chrome) I ever biked with. The fat that the compartments are TIGHT means you're shoving/cramming stuff into them, BUT, they always yield the load AND b/c of the confined area, there is NO movement of items, making the content/bag more dense, thus it feels lighter in transit, even at capacity. most folks will think this isn't a large enough bag. On the regular, I fit 13" laptop, Mizu 20oz, gloves, hat, Chucks, wallet, U-lock, cable lock, wallet, tablet/pens, and sunglasses. To commute in Dec. means 30 degree morning and 60 degree evening, so this thing has to fit the layers i won't be needing to get home. i have at least 1-2 layers (top/bottoms) to tote home and this Mini Buran gobbles them up. B/c of the velcro patches down the front, the waterproof cover (not yet tested) easily secures no matter how much I cram inside. The additional straps secure the contents further ans when you cinch them, they don't move (at least for now, but I expect a year from now they will be looser). Finally, the silver metal seat belt strap and buckle is not only cool as sh#%, it is an easy to tighten/loosen on the fly. I however cannot tighten it quite enough in transit, it is very easy to loosen and slide over helmets. The chest strap is pretty useful to throw the Mini over a shoulder while you carry your bike inside the building. The size doesn't block my view in anyway as I ride, which cannot be said of a backpack with equal capacity. My only wish, to have it in GIRL colors, and no I don't mean pink, I mean, girls like soft color combos, like the fig/tans/greys with alternate waterproof fabric color. Just sayin! If you don't need to carry an entire second outfit, this will work for most daily's. I'm loving it. Now if only I could flip flop the straps to allow my shoulder injuries to slowly break into the load. Loving!!

Cool and secure!
I got this through Zappos and am extremely happy with this bag. It is well balanced, compartmental and the most "briefcase" like bag they make. Easy access is key for me, and the zipper part on the outside is optimal. The video clip on the site is worth watching to see how to manipulate the bag around your body effectively. This bag is so cool!
