Review by jbucky1

Im a product designer and a chrome purchaser for many years, having many chrome products. The brand clicks with me and the products are well done. One of my latest products was the barrage, I needed a bag for commuting to work, but also a general "life" bag, run to the grocery store bag, move some big parts etc bag. The barrage is well designed and very versatile. The cargo net is very useful, wet clothes , odd shaped items, helmets and bags of broccoli crowns (because the inside is full of beer and steaks for the grill). The bag has enough structure to not be a blob when loaded, and not to be too rigid, it's also slim so you have high visibility over the shoulders. The pockets on the side are perfect for U locks and it's comfortable to wear. the roll top is flexible for mid to large size loads. The construction quality is very high , feels hand made. There is only one attribute I would like to have designed better. Since I reide year round through winters and at night, I would like an attachment for a flashing rear light, hooking light to the cargo net is clumsy and also at the wrong orientation for car traffic behind you as the flasher needs to be lower. That's about it - Great bag, high value for money and I use it 6 days out of 7with no problems for the last year and a half. With regard to capacity, it can hold a lot, my daily load is , jeans, shirt, tools, notepads, some food U lock, lights, puncture kit. I can easily fit more which is great for stops at the grocery store on the way home and I sometimes carry shoes. A large grocery load would consist of 6 Pack of tall boy beer, brocolli crowns, cheese, 1/2 gallon of milk, 1lb of coffee, some sausages or steaks, a couple of onions, some carrots and a small block of cheese and crackers. This size load would still mean rolling the top a couple of turns. Killer Bag for the everyday.


Cargo net is way more useful than I assumed

Review by AthleticFeet

The cargo net was very appealing because I like to use my rollerblades as transportation whenever possible and I thought the cargo net would hold them very well. It is winter (at least it was on Monday) and so I thought I wouldn't have much use for it in the meantime. This bag immediately solved two things that I hate dealing with. I hate carrying my coat around as I move from lab to lab at school and I also hate stuffing my coat into a pocket of a bag...this cargo net is unbelievably perfect for easily storing my coat and keeping all of my personal items in a neat package so that I can pick up and move out quickly when I get sent to work in the various labs.

I am super stoked on this bag.


Almost Perfect !!

Review by Gal

I love this bag, using it for over 6 month almost daily, Comfortable, Durable and I love the look of it.
Few zippered side pockets and slightly larger ? wider will make it perfect 5*


The bag to beat ALL OTHERS

Review by BlueCarbon

I've had this bag for over a year now. I use it every day for commuting to/from work and crusin' around town. Rain or shine this bag does it all.
What can I say that others haven't already. The cargo net is fantastic for extra pair of shoes, helmet storage, packages etc.
As I believe someone else mention, it would be nice to have had a small little item pocket somewhere internal or external, but nothing a small chrome utility pouch strapped to the shoulder straps can't fix. I've used this thing to travel and it's great for that.


Best Bag I've ever bought

Review by The Pilot

Best bag I've ever bought. At first it feels u comfortable because of the shoulder rest piece. After a few rides and getting comfy with the shoulder rest piece it becomes amazing! It is the first actual waterproof bag I've bought although other brand bags say they are (just don't submerge the barrage). The cargo net really helps maximize capacity. I use this for college commute, cycling and I've even used it for camping! Great back padding. Bought it in Summer 2015. Still love the bag!


Extremely Versatile

Review by Erik

I love this bag. Its my go to bag for everyday use, hiking, biking, and everything in between. The barrage is small when it needs to be and big when you've got a lot to carry.


My Yellow Multi-Use Bag of Choice

Review by Jimmy Lovely

Love this bag for my daily commute in Norway! Mine is a cool custom build in bright yellow with reflective piping around all edges. The result: I am a visible cyclist even in the darkest, most unfriendly morning commutes during the long, harsh Norwegian winter. I have even used this bag in a 94km 4-hour mtb race as the pack is super comfy and in a narrow design. No issues. It hauls all my stuff in style and is extremely well-made. I keep keys and wallet and smaller items organized in a separate small zippered pouch - which eliminates having to fish-around in the bottom of the bag. Love the ability to expand using the webbing. On one grocery run, I carried 3 large frozen pizzas in the webbing on one grocery trip along with 40 lbs of groceries... Easy to adjust the straps and the quick release buckle is excellent. This backpack rules!


Love it

Review by Michael

This is a rock solid, well designed bag which is perfect for everyday commuting. It is flexible enough for small loads as well as extendable for bigger loads. The cargo net is one of my favorite features - great for stashing your helmet or a spare pair of shoes.


An excellent bag with impressive expandable capacity!

Review by Giraffe-on-a-bike

I've been using my Barrage for about a half a year now with an average of about 80 miles worth of bike commuting a week. The bag is very sturdy and holding up great as one would expect from a chrome bag. It is also quite comfortable, it has a good pad to cushion your back and spine as well as nice broad shoulder straps to disperse out the load on your shoulders effectively. That last point is particularly important because with the expandable cargo net on the back this bag can carry a lot of stuff which can get very heavy! The cargo net is also useful when you already have a loaded up internal compartment but you want to put your helmet somewhere when you are off the bike. This is hands down the best biking backpack I’ve had yet. My only small complaint is I wish it had a small zipper pocket or pouch for tiny items inside the bag. However, that can be overcome with things like a small pencil bag or a tool roll to keep small items together in the large compartment. Overall I would strongly recommend this bag.
