Comfy and durable

Review by Matt

Have had this bag for a year now. It has held up really well but I rarely ride with it since I have to commute 50 miles for work. The few rides that I have taken it on went very well; bag does not slide around when all buckles are fastened. Comfortable shoulder strap made me forget I was even carrying it even though it was packed full. Personally, it typically just functions as my daily laptop bag in which it does an extraordinary job at protecting my stuff with the padded laptop sleeve, durable build, and water resistant (proof?) material. My biggest critiques are that you have to wear it over the left shoulder (my preference anyways) and the fact that when the shoulder strap is cinched down, there is quite a bit of extra strap just flopping around. Some way of keeping that strap restrained would be nice. Awesome bag overall!

Great bag

Review by Mike

The other day I asked a friend where I could find a comfortable but durable messenger bag that could carry my 13 inch laptop around and have space for some small books. He had told me about the Chrome store in the Les so i checked out online first. The buran bag caught my eye and looked so much better in person. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, and answered all my questions. Although 160 was a little out my budget for a bag, she mentioned I could return it as long as it was in good enough shape to resell which is completely fair. So happy I bought the bag I will not be returning it. The buckle is strong, the bag super super comfortable, looks great, and fits my laptop and some other small books along with everything else you might find in a guys bag. Def. worth it. My favorite bag in a long time.

unbelivable

Review by jari

It has the right size, right pockets, flexible to fit my gym clothes. Only complaint is that the buckle is heavy and can bump into things, such as car interior if you throw it in. But overall and unbelievably good bag.

Perfect Every Day Bag

Review by David

I've been using Chrome bags for almost 10 years now, and I've had this particular one for almost 3 years. It's the perfect size for commuting to work, not bulky, but holds everything you need. The built in laptop pocket is great for basically any size laptop, and it's nice to not have to add any bulk to your bag when you decide to bring your laptop. The front pockets are perfect for books, pens, notebooks, etc.

The bag is super comfortable to wear and stays balanced on a bike as well as on foot. The top carrying handle (absent from bags like the Citizen and Metropolis) is a really nice feature I never realized I was missing until I got this bag.

All in all this is a perfect bag, zero complaints.

Excellent!

Review by Guido

I´ve been using this bag for a week now. Right here in Argentina, we dont have retailers of Chrome, so everyone seemed very surprise of my Buran bah while i was riding to university. It´s comfy to my back, and the design is just great!
I´m not a person that buys a BRAND, and with Chrome Industries i found that, i can be one. I´ll be buying more stuff from Chrome in the future!

7+ years and Counting

Review by streetdweller

Back in 2009 I purchased this bag after weeks of looking for "the perfect messenger bag". I'm rough on things in general and known to go through a bag in a good 4 months and ultimately revealing a bags "quality of build" so to speak. Like any rough guy....I drag it from time to time, smack the random street thug with it to fend of theft, use it as a crash pad when I fall off my bike, and spill loads of coffee on it at the local coffee house when Im tired. I ponied up and paid what I thought was a ridiculous price for a "man bag" almost matching the cost of my wife ridiculously priced purses. But after the first year blew past, i realized you get what you pay for, and with Chrome; quality and durability definitely comes with it. With all the bags I have purchased throughout my life, I was deffinately getting use to the standard "buy -use for 4-5 months and buy anew " cycle that typically comes with todays products as most are mad elf poor quality. so after 7 years there is not a bad thing I can say about this bag except it could use a different pocket set up.....but hey the new designs have answered that.
So its 5 + stars from this bag. Chrome is true to there word. This bag has not ripped, broke, fallen apart or deteriorated in anyway over the last seven years. But I have to get a new one because I like the new black buckle lol. Probably gunna also get a few slings for my military buddy across seas. The design will definitely hold up in the field. Thanks Chrome for proving all companies are not bad.

Perfect messenger bag

Review by Ernest

I bought this bag because it was on sale. I already own another Chrome messenger bag and absolutely love it. I got this bag because as I said it was on sale but now that I have had a chance to use it i have switched from my citizen messenger bag to this one because it is perfect for me. I am Professional artist and as such I carry a lot of stuff from my laptop, Wacom tablet and other art supplies to water and lunch on a daily basis. So the organization of this bad is perfect for my needs. It is also a little smaller then the citizen messenger bag, which it turns out is perfect for me. I am 5' 10", 200 lb with a muscular build. I also love that this bag has a handle, which I think all Chrome messenger bags should have.

I also commute on a motorcycle and at time I am going fairly fast 80 or more. So the fact that this bag (and all Chrome bags for that matter) is made so well was a big selling point for me. I also love the fact that it is American made.

If you want a messenger bag that is well made, looks good a is not very expensive I would recommend the Buran laptop messenger bag to all.

100% satisfied

Review by MS. Millie's Son

I'm a long time chrome user. The Buran is my fifth bag. Why some many one may ask. Because I usually surrender my old one to one of my admiring friends. Friends don't let friends Rock Junk. Lol. The Buran , all the convenience, and durability I need in a laptop bag. As will as giving my space to bring along a nice read. I really appreciate Chrome's commitment to waterproof materials. And there in-store customer service. (Soho,NYC ). I wish the company all the success.

Western Oregon Proof

Review by Keith

This is a good fit for my needs. I commute by bike and carry my laptop back and forth to work. I commute year-round so half of it is in the rain. It's big enough to hold my laptop and my rain gear (when I'm not wearing it). My only complaint is I couldn't swap shoulders when I was recovering from a broken collarbone.
