- Product Review (submitted on February 25, 2014):
Long time Chrome posse member, first time reviewer.. The Barrage is my second favorite backpack from Chrome. Technically, the Soma (my #1) isn't a true backpack, but the Barrage is perfect for those in between errands I often find left to me -- going to the bank for change and deposit, picking up the share of produce, and doing site surveys for bike rack installation. Having a place for the helmet when it's not on the head, or that big dirty bunch of greens and roots while carrying a laptop or iPad, a yellow legal pad, camera, tripod, mini U-lock, plus I strap my folding solar panels to the webbing mesh to charge the cellular that's in the phone pouch. I'm a grocery getting, picture taking, energy plant, and taking it too the bank. Nice design, wish it were about 2 inches wider as I'm larger than skinny jeans. That would have bought the Barrage that fifth star. The new reflective camo version is on the way to me now.. come to papa..
p.s. one day there will be a secret gun pocket in this bag too..
