Citizen Messenger Bag

Product Review (submitted on April 30, 2013):
I bought my Chrome Citizen almost two years and have been using it for my primary work bag ever since. The bag is not only incredibly durable, but can hold an incredible amount for a bag Chrome classifies as "medium." The bag is a tad heavy when loaded, but with the cross body design and padded straps, you hardly notice. The easily adjustable front strap makes it easy to accommodate anything from a button down shirt to the heaviest coats. (Very convenient for unpredictable New England weather.) The overall design of the bag seems incredibly well thought out. The pockets are the perfect size for phones, wallets, iPods, water bottles, etc. It seems as though the designers measured these items and tailored the bag around them. The generous use of buckles, velcro and zippers make the bag feel very secure and theft proof. The ONLY addition I would make would be some kind of metal loop or hook on the bottom of the strap. I carry my car/house keys on a carabiner, and finding a place to clip it where it won't be in the way or jangling too much is challenging. I was so happy with this bag that I recently bought the Mini-Metro for air travel. It is the perfect size for my travel documents, Kindle and iPhone. (And an extra couple pairs of undies for that rare case of luggage loss/delay) All in all, a fantastic product from which I'm sure I will get years of use! Thank you Chrome for a well made, durable, incredibly cool looking bag!
