  • Front pocket is NOT weatherproof


    Although the main compartment is fairly water-resistant, the front compartment--where the laptop sleeve is--did not survive a two-hour rainy trek in NYC recently, turning the front compartment into the worst pool party ever and leaving me with a $1100+ repair bill from Apple. If you count on your laptop to make your income, expect to lose a couple of weeks of work if you get caught in the rain with this bag.

    What I've come to expect.


    Super functional and tough. I've had a few Chrome bags and this is my favorite. It holds a lot of stuff and still keeps a slim profile.


    Cool for a college kid, not much else


    Cool looking bag. Would be good if I was a college student. Its big. But hard to carry anything like groceries in. Will probably sell it.


    Workhorse Built Like A Tank


    My daily bag for over four years, this thing is a beast! The design is nearly perfect, making it the best bag I've ever owned. I use as a large commuter bag when biking or on the NYC subway, and sometimes as a weekend or travel bag. After a warranty issue on my 3-yr old old Bravo 1.0, I was upgraded to the 2.0 (for free, thanks Chome!), and never looked back. This model introduced the much-needed water bottle pocket, and added a second sleeve in the front/laptop pocket, presumably for tablets but which I personally use for my magazine or books. The 2.0 did away with the soft expandable lining of the 1.0 (which made the original ungodly tall but was a godsend when you bought too many groceries to stuff in the main compartment) but I don't miss it as I feared I would. My office is semi-formal, and the bag not only looks professional enough for work and client meetings, but also garners a lot of compliments. When hauling my laptop and work gear, or running errands after work, the expandable size and tough lining means I can toss anything in there - a six pack, tools, tall objects like drawing sets - it is a slim bag that becomes a big hauler when needed. Four years in, it's finally starting to show a little wear. The Velcro isn't quite as strongly held, and the back fabric panel is starting to tear at the bottom. But given the beating it takes - living the subway floor and being tossed around construction sites - the durability is unbelievable. Not to mention Chrome does repairs, and often for free. I recently purchased a Bravo Echo as I've started to bike commute less, and was looking for a smaller size for the train rides, but the Bravo 2.0 still stands as my all-time favorite bag. Brilliant design and aesthetics, as we've come to expect from Chrome.



    Pretty good, as long as you don't mind velcro.


    This is a pretty good bag, especially considering I picked it up from the Memorial Day sale for like $90. I've been using it as my EDC, but it's a little large for what I tend to carry. However, it doesn't feel like it's too big (I'm 6'2"), and the extra space is handy when I need to carry an extra change of clothes or pick up some light groceries. The weather resistance and build quality is great. I've been through the rain with it, and I've noticed no signs that anything inside has gotten even slightly damp. The shoulder straps are comfy, but they seem a little light; I haven't loaded it up with a ton of weight yet, but I'm worried that over time the foam might wear thin. The straps were very easy to adjust. Making adjustments felt super smooth, and the metal hardware seems pretty durable. I also really dig the buckle on the sternum strap; it's pretty slick and easy to use one-handed, and gives the bag a bit of personality. I've yet to get much use out of the straps on the front, but I'm sure they'd work well enough for carrying a jacket or helmet. Although I like this bag, I do have a few gripes. It's very velcro-y; you're gonna have to grip it and rip it. On the plus side, I doubt anyone will be able to get into it while I'm wearing it without my knowledge, so it seems pretty safe. I have had velcro strips wear out after a year or two of daily use, but I haven't noticed any wear yet, so we'll see. The front pouch does have some organization, but it's sparse and can be hard to access since it's just a pocket, and the liner isn't very bright, so it gets dark in there. The laptop pocket is decently padded, but there's no false bottom, and I wish it was up against my back instead of near the front; the weight distribution can be weird if you have a heavier laptop and not much stuff in the main compartment. Speaking of, the main compartment's waterproof liner was creased when I got it; it's not really a quality issue, but the liner is stiff and it was a pain to fix.
