Wonderful off the bat, itlived up to its clame to fame. no kidding about fitting you whole life in this bag. sturdy, the extra strap that goes under your arm accross the chest for extra tug, isn't always needed because of the heft of the bag it usually stays put but on those windy days in chicago, yes it is a must. unfortuanately I didn't seearch very hard before i bought minez, so I paid full price n tax from chrome website, but I was also being a princess/Debby about the color... my only gripe is the lenght of the strap from the pull clamp, I'm a thin n lanky so when not ccarrying much i pull it tight n snug like, and so it's a lot of dangle that I wrap up, don't want to cut n restich just incase i need extra length....if not for that I'd give it five stars... maybe I'll add a thin velcro strip on the strap to hold it in place and not dangle or drop... fraid one day it might get caught in the chainring, or rear wheel and then I face plant!
Been using this bag for the last few months. Previously I was using a regular backpack but got sick of all the straps hanging off, especially when flying. I like how simple this bag is going through TSA, and how well it works just everyday for cruising around town doing errands on my bike. Solid buy.
Thanks Phil, your advise was helpful problem solved, no problemo. The folks over at backcountry were very happy to address the issues. Thanks to Eric his professionalism and wiliness to help was a great comfort five stars from me for sure!!!
I have owned my Chrome Metropolis since 2005 and it is still going strong. No tears, no rips, and has held up to all the rigors I have put it through:
Hauling 30 beers-Tight, but check
Hauling books, laptops, etc-Check
Secret flask storage-Check
I just wanted to give a heads up, this bag is left shoulder specific---Great for right handers...lefties, well, that's the devils work.
