Chrome

Chrome Logo
More than two decades ago, the first Chrome® bag was made with a Juki sewing machine, a few yards of ballistic nylon, military grade truck tarpaulin, and the commitment to making indestructible gear that works on and off the bike. From the beginning, the drive for simple, useful, and resourceful solutions led the brand to make its original messenger bag with a salvaged seatbelt buckle. With innovations like the iconic quick-release buckle, load-stabilizing strap, dual-wall construction, and five bar webbing, it became the bag of choice for working bike messengers around the world, putting Chrome on the map.

Over the last twenty years, Chrome has never wavered from its commitment of crafting useful, durable gear for people who live and ride in the city. You need not look far to find street-tested backpacks, messenger bags, laptop bags, and street-inspired footwear that adapt to the changing and unpredictable nature of the city.

Chrome is urban mobility. Gear up in simple, functional bags and shoes made from quality materials, that are made to work on bike, at work, and on the street.

As should be expected with all Chrome gear - this Pike backpack doesn't disappoint. It's alittle smaller than I expected not at all too small and will more than fit all the average daily carry gear. Well made. Tons of pockets - all very easily accessible. Great feel and fit.

I'm a little torn on this one. It's got the great Chrome style, and it's definitely waterproof. Those seams and zippers are awesome. But, as a result, it's a little stiff. That, also, is not that bad, as it helps keep the shape of the bag if you don't have it packed to full. But, to ensure the entire thing is waterproof, you get a plastic buckle instead of a metal one. It is big enough inside with a minimal pocket to hold an iPad as advertised, but it really doesn't have enough organizer pockets inside for my taste. Probably my fault for expecting something different than its intended purpose. If you have to keep something dry in the elements, this is definitely a keeper... and that's why I'll be keeping mine. It will easily hold an iPad, a packable rain jacket, etc. For an EDC, though, the Chrome MXD Segment is the one I've chosen to use.

These are super cute, the weight is great, and I love the stiff sole (I commute 12+ miles by bike each day) However, they are a little tight and the heel cup is extra stiff, resulting in major blisters. Once properly broken in I found them really comfy and the tight heel cup is nice in preventing my foot from slipping out, the "breaking in" phase was pretty sucky though.

When the top opening is rolled up, it becomes a very long way down into the bag. I didn't even want to try putting things in it because it just seemed like it would be such a pain to get things in/out.

I REALLY wanted to love and keep this backpack because it's sleek looking and waterproof. But there were things I just couldn't get past. The exterior loops have zero give to them. I'd prefer if they were a tight elastic that I could tuck something behind that it would then keep snug, almost like a bungee. They're also all too low down for the items I wanted to use them for. The inside could use some more compartments as well. I wanted to bring this bag on set with a good camera and other gear but it's just not practical for that kind of thing.

These were my favorite biking shoes until I got “clipless” pedals (you know, the kind you clip in with...). They’re still great walking-round shoes. Love the elastic strap for tucking in the shoelaces, as well as the heavy metal ends on the laces. I replace the insole with a stiff orthotic. When I need to buy a second pair of clipless pedal shoes, I’ll try the version of this shoe that has that feature.

I have wider feet, but the toe box is so small I don't see how anyone could where these. Plus, the opening is so wide it was impossible to tighten the shoes enough to keep my heel from popping out. I wish they made a style where only the forefoot was stiff, instead of the entire sole. This would make them much more walkable.

these shoes look awesome and i’m rating them pretty highly despite them being extraordinarily painful for me to wear lol. these are not for even mildly wide feet. my dad has EEE feet. i’m maybe E and have gotten away with wearing plenty of Ds over the course of my life. but these shoes are built like tanks... wayyyy stronger than anything by Vans, and so they don’t stretch much. I’ve even tried steaming them before wearing. Just be aware that if your feet are wider than a medium, you’re gonna have some sore lateral feet and pinky toes. i can only wear them for short periods of time.

Wanted to love but found the seatbelt too heavy for such a small pack. Plus the constant metal against metal sound was annoying. Looks cool though. Probably better for a larger frame.

A little smaller space wise inside than I had anticipated. Even though I studied the photos of the interior on the Chrome Industries website, apparently I didn't study them close enough. It is very difficult to fit my Nikon DSLR into the bag with the standard 50mm lens on it. The camera body shown in the interior photos must not have a lens on it at all. Additionally, cramming my 70-250mm zoom lens into the bag along with the camera body with the 50mm attached is like a really frustrating game of Tetris. Why you'd want a bag designed for quick access like this one to only accomodate a body without the standard lens already on it is beyond me. Sure, swing it around, unbuckle it, unzip it and then instead of grabbing your camera, popping off the lens cap, and shooting, you've then got to take the camera body lens attachment cap off, pull out your 50mm lens, pop both caps off of that, attach it to your camera body, and THEN shoot. I'm going to keep the bag because it's comfortable and weatherproof, and I'm going to try to figure out a way to make this work... and also because I took the tags off already. I may end up using the straps on the side to attach an external padded case for my zoom lens instead of using it for my carbon fiber travel tripod like I wanted to.

Rostov

  • Overall2Rated 2 stars out of 5
  • Comfort 4Rated 4 stars out of 5
  • Style 4Rated 4 stars out of 5

I bought this bag to replace a Topo Designs Daypack, which was too slim to allow tupperwares to sit flat on the bottom. The Rostov has a big enough footprint to allow me to stack multiple tupperwares without any tipping over, which is the main reason I bought it. Admittedly, that's a pretty fringe use case, but on the off chance anyone else is looking for a laptop backpack that's good for transporting food containers, this is it. Unfortunately, the Rostov is let down by what I can only call a deranged design decision—the laptop sleeve billows outward like three inches. I've owned a lot of bags, and until this one I had always assumed laptop sleeves were a solved problem. Sew in a padded foam slot. Give it a velcro flap (or don't). This is the first laptop sleeve I've seen that appears to have been designed to transport a 17" gaming laptop and a full-size keyboard, mouse, and portable hard drive. If that's what you need to haul around in your laptop sleeve, then look no further. If it isn't and you have a normal 13-15" laptop, prepare for frustration. While walking with the bag on, my laptop slaps against my back 2 times per second. Adjusting the shoulder straps gives the laptop back-slaps more or less impact, but has no effect on their frequency. The only way to stop the slapping is to modify the laptop sleeve yourself. I ordered a bunch of heavy-duty binder clips and used 6 of them to pinch aside the excess material. The clips fall off almost every day. It sucks, and if daily laptop transportation is what you're after, this bag sucks too. If you don't ever need to use the laptop sleeve for a laptop (the sleeve could probably hold a towel for a weekend trip), then this is a four-star bag—it's comfortable, understated, and durable. I'd give it five stars if they fixed the laptop sleeve, used better zippers, and gave it better weatherproofing.

Great shoes. Clean design and really well made. Make sure you order a size smaller than what you normally wear. Chrome recommends going a full size down for proper fit, and that is good advice. I got a size down from what I wear in Nike and they are perfect.

The Hondo has been a solid bag. I needed a basic weatherproof backpack, and Chrome has far exceeded my expectations. It's comfortable, accommodates everything I need to pack on a daily basis, and withstands the rigors of the city. Great price point for the quality, too.

i've had these shoes for over three years now. they have entered the pantheon of my favorite pairs of shoes ever -- and probably only five or so pairs of footwear from my entire life occupy that position. and i have lived for many decades. here's the deal: i bought these strictly for cycling because i was getting sore feet from the regular sneakers i was wearing. the soles on these were wonderfully stiff and protected my feet while cycling -- no more soreness. but yes, they were murder to wear just for walking. but then one day something magical happened: my old sneakers had become too ratty to wear, so i put these on. lo and behold, they had been broken in by all the cycling and were now super-comfortable. they look pretty cool too (all black with red soles). so now i see they're on sale and i contemplated buying a second pair -- even though the ones i have are still holding up, nothing lasts forever. alas, they don't have my size -- which by they way, is 10.5 for these and everything else. i'll check back again in a year or so, if i'm still alive.

I love this Backpack. It's my second favorite right next to the Chrome messenger bag I own. I use it daily and it carries my laptop, chargers, lunch and a change of clothes. Pro: -Holds a lot. All the essentials. -Can accommodate a 15" laptop -So comfortable! It's padded in all the right places I can wear this thing for hours. Con: -Not 100% waterproof. I have been riding/walking in the rain and had moisture come through the top portion near the Zipper and handle. Light rain is just fine. -could use a few more pockets. But the size and comfort of this bag far outweighs that.

I found these extremely rigid and uncomfortable. I'm sure they're durable, but the comfort trade-off wasn't worth it for me. Also, I wasn't crazy about the prominent red label. Some people don't mind conspicuous branding, but it's not my thing. It was more prominent than I expected based on the photos here.

Appears well made and looks like it would hold up to a fair amount of use. Also pretty stylish. But when it comes down to it a bag needs to look good and last, but most of all be functional. Aside from a roomy main compartment this bag does not offer much in the way of organization inside; neither does it offer any useful outside pockets. If you are Ok with tossing your stuff inside and then having to dig them out (literally, since you have to shove your whole arm in there to reach the bottom) then you might not mind this bag. I wanted to like it for the style; had to pass on it because of the lack of functionality.
