A Bag Built for the City

The Orlov has become a favorite of those who kick ass on city streets on two wheels no matter what the day brings. The Orlov 2.0 keeps around the original's waterproof rolltop main compartment and dual flap closure system as well as the two front-mounted quick access pockets. We added a gusset to the quick access pockets to make it easier to reach all the way down to the bottom and re-engineered the main compartment for more interior org and stability. With a reconfigured strap and back panel to fit a wider range of body types and an added, grab-it-quick, zippered tech pocket for phones, keys, etc. the Orlov is back and better than ever.

Throwback

Militia Series Militia Series

In 2006 we launched our first run of the Militia Series. No-nonsense, tough as nails bags built to be waterproof and haul a hell of a lot of gear. In the ensuing 12 years, we’ve seen Chrome Militia bags from Portland to Phnom Penh. This year we decided to get the band back together - but we can’t ever leave something the way we found it so we talked to Militia Series fans about their trusty bags and tinkered with everything from pocket dimensions to strap configuration to give an upgrade to the classic Militia bags.

  • Alt-Indie bag-maker gets on Workwear-as-Couture bandwagon.

    inner bucket tarp way too big for exterior shell - huge wrinkles made it impossible to pack. By the same token, the exterior vertical seams narrowed until the diameter of the bag opening aperture was quite small, compounding the impossibility of navigating around the oversize wrinkles of the interior bucket. Returned for a refund. In the two years since I moved away from SF, Chrome has moved to - somewhere else - they are expanding, no longer building bags in-house but actually importing most of their stuff from overseas. They are diversifying into clothing, etc. Chrome used to be the alt-indie, messenger culture couture. I can't buy clothes from them: I've tried. My point is, Chrome seems to be losing its way. I think that they're bound to get lost in the noise and fall into obscurity, like for example Timbuk2 has. Corporate expansion seems to have affected my 'shopping experience' in 2 ways when I purchased this bag: a) Chrome's Quality Control has suffered appreciably, and b) Chrome has had the same recording on their customer service phone number for over a month: "We are all at a company-wide meeting...". Is this a seasonal retreat at a ski-lodge? To have that same recording on your customer service number insults the intelligence of your customers on so many levels: it can't be accurate, therefore it is dishonest; is it just laziness that you can't make an accurate recording, or a more general recording?; are you so short-staffed that you can't, like, take turns answering the phone?; &c... I've been pretty harsh in my email communications as a result of these frustrations. I regret that, but Chrome has acknowledged 'human error' in other areas of this process (see UrbanEx Tote review). These are management issues ultimately. Unless Chrome is a worker-owned co-op, their management is going to run them into the ground. Corporate expansion shouldn't create distractions from human interaction, or Chrome becomes part of the problem.

    Great Daily Ride Bag

    I'm very impressed with the quality of the materials in this bag. The exterior nylon is thick and durable. The interior waterproof liner seems like it will hold up in heavy weather. I like how all the different pockets close. The chest strap is very useful for stability. I feel like I will be using this bag for at least a few years, if not more. It's very comfortable as well!

    Use it as a commuter bag. Fits gym clothes + shoes and my work related stuff. It's waterproof. Loud Velcro which can be an issue in an office.

    Durable and high quality. I haven't used it much as of yet but look forward to cycling with it. My first roll top, loud to open all that velcro but it does it's job. A few more smaller zip pockets would be helpful. Details are beautiful, none or few plastic components. Straps are lighter than I thought but I'm okay with it, very breathable.
