Based on super-utilitarian travel packs, the Modal Pike has multiple configurations based on need. Need more room? Keep the front flap down for extra pocket space. Want to be streamlined and secure? Clip the front flap up for a smooth silhouette that’s difficult to open when it’s on your back. Add in multiple access points to the main compartment, a dedicated laptop pocket and some water bottle / flap secured outside pockets and the Modal Pike is ready to hit the highway.
I have a number of bags from Chrome and have been a loyal customer for about 5-6 years now. As usual, they keep turning out one great product after another.
Love this so much. Can't wait to use it on my next trip.
This backpack is awesome. I moved from a tote bag and as a short-ish woman I wanted something functional, not too boxy, and not so big I looked like a schoolchild but still holds everything. I can fit much more in it and it's more comfortable and less bulky. I love how you can compress it based on volume to keep the haul close to your body for comfort and avoid whacking anyone unnecessarily. The long-ways zipper makes it really easy to find what's inside (like when I'm in the locker room after the gym) and all the pockets are perfect. The only things I would change are the velcro on the side pockets (maybe magnets or zippers instead) and the top pocket creates a weird fake pocket on the inside. Excited to bring it on my next work trip.
I own a lot of Chrome bags. This was a replacement for the mini metro I destroyed. I love camo. That and the proposed feature set, led me to this bag. Unfortunately, execution is not up to par for Chrome. I am very surprised at the pitfalls. First, the flap pocket-zipper pull was sewn into the bag seam. I had to cut it out to use the zipper. While, I like the 2-way opening. The outside pockets and water bottle holders are a huge disappointment. Even with the bag lightly loaded, the water bottle pockets don't expand enough to hold a regular 16-20 oz. water bottle. If very much is placed in the flap pockets, they prohibit water bottle placement. As well, straps running through the bottle holders severely restrict ease of use of the water bottle pockets. As I use the bag on/off bike , recreational and going to/from work. The need for ease of use on utilization of the full feature set congruently is paramount. Unfortunately, the design doesn't deliver. It's a shame for such a good looking bag. I really don't "get" the strap set up through the water bottle pocket. it is really inconvenient. I regret not picking up another Hondo or waiting for new mini metro colorway. It feels weird to be very disappointed in a Chrome bag. But it is way below what I have known Chrome for....
