Dr Snow Stalkerwrote a review of Chrome Mini Metro 20L Messenger Bag on February 8, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is my third chrome bag. Love the product. Great quality. And the belt buckle is just mad cool. Always get complements on that.
PROS: The velcro closure is awesome. Must be the best velcro I've ever seen. It's almost difficult to tear open once you got it closed up.
Tough shell, fully waterproof. You could dump water on the inside and carry that around if you wanted to. Overall great bag.
CONS: The mini metro is much smaller than the classic metro messenger bag. Smaller than I expected. I won't be able to carry a whole change of clothes, including shoes, in there for the gym. I was a little surprised and disappointed by how limited the capacity of the bag was considering how much I can pack into my other chrome bags.
Also, the belt strap is a thinner material than both of my previous bags. Is Chrome getting cheap with their material or do they just figure the bag is so small in capacity, you won't need that heavy duty belt strap to keep stuff on your back? The problem is the thinner belt folds and crinkles when trying to adjust it, which becomes annoying.
Last thing: it is missing the secret pocket between the seams that they have on the standard metro bags. How am I going to stash stuff I don't want the cops to find?
