a step up

Review by JEFF

I was making deliveries with first a cooler bag from Whole Foods, then a Marmot Urban Hauler. This is a big step up. I'm totally waterproof now with this bag and I'm generally happy with the cargo net, even being able to fit a small cardboard box on top of the net, and with shock cables, was able to secure what I wanted.

The design is very open to interpretation, and although I would have liked a waterproof and more solid accessories pocket from this pack, I think I'll be happy adding a waterproof pouch and laptop sleeve to upgrade. Lots of options and applications with this bag. Highly recommended.

Best Bag Ever!

Review by Lightguy

I just picked up this bag recently from the Chicago hub! Great store the staff are awesome, big shout out to Grace for sewing the patches on mine while I waited & nailing where to put them. This bag rocks! Solid build great fit. I have a Citizen (2010) that's still going but wanted something to spread the weight onto both shoulders. Size is just right - lots of space but not massive on your back. I love all the details, used the cargo net already - holds your lid perfectly when not riding. Lastly you can't beat Chrome build quality.
Five stars!! Get this bag, you will love it, it's the best bag I've ever owned.

solid choice

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.
Thanks!!!

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.
