DetailsWe wanted to make a small bag that was 100% waterproof and didn't look like a murse. The Chekhov is inspired by WWII utility belts and features our 100% Welded-Waterproof liner. It's small enough to make it past security and keeps sweat off your back in the summer. The Chekhov features a zippered compartment to keep wet/dry items separate, external phone pocket for quick access while riding, and easy access u-lock holster. The iconic quick-release buckle and adjustable belt allow for the bag to be worn around the waist or as a cross-chest sling.

- big enough, but not too big
I ride a touring bike, I ride long distances, and I hate wearing backpacks or anything when I ride.
My bike is set up with panniers so I can haul pretty much anything I want already but I wanted something light-weight with a u-lock holster and easy access so I can grab things on the go. This bag does not disappoint!
I recently sustained an injury to my left shoulder and wish I could have bought this bag with a right-shoulder option. But even with my shoulder injury, this bag hasn't been too big of an issue on short rides, and I just use it as a fanny pack on longer rides (although I have noticed that when wearing this bag as a fanny pack, the u-lock is harder to pull out with the quickness).
for such a small bag I've been surprised at how much I can fit into it. my u-lock, wallet, four thick composition books, and room for a snack. or I can keep cold drinks or wet stuff in the main pouch and everything in the zipper pouch stays totally dry!
- Perfect for the daily grind
Haven't had much cause to use this biking yet (as it's freaking cold) but I do have to say this bag is perfect for running around Seoul. I voice act and usually don't need to carry much, but I carry it all over town. The Chekhov perfectly fits a 3rd generation full-sized iPad (in a relatively stream-lined folio case), a .5L bottle of water and my glasses case in the main compartment and the wallet pocket holds a box of cough drops and chiclet-style gum side-by-side without any distortion of shape. About the only thing that could make this bag better in my opinion is if it had a small pocket inside the roll to hold a pen or pencil. As it is, the main compartment has a nice straight bottom and there's not a whole lot I can carry that forces me to dig around inside. The strap is also super easy to adjust and is quite comfortable, as is to be expected from Chrome I suppose. Great workmanship too, the bag feels solid. If you need to carry around just a few things, this bag'll do ya nicely.
