Back to School - Choosing the Right Bag

School is back in session. You're commuting to campus, working a new job, or catching up with friends after your summer break. Whatever it is, you're on the bike and you're going to need to carry stuff. We've stocked up on street tested bags, guaranteed for life bags from Chrome, and we've got a breakdown to help you decide which bag is perfect for lugging your essentials around town.

The Chrome Yalta Rolltop Backpack

The Yalta 2.0 improves on Chrome's classic weatherproof rolltop. Now with a wider top opening for easier loading, more material options and an improved harness, the Yalta is better than ever. Guaranteed for life and complete with a built-in 15" laptop sleeve, waterproof rolltop main compartment, and external pocket and mounting loops. If you want a die-hard bag for riding in Richmond, give the Yalta a look.

The Chrome Barrage Backpack

The Barrage Cargo backpack is Chrome's most rugged all-conditions backpack. The main compartment is watertight and the bag comes with an exterior adjustable cargo net for carrying a helmet, change of shoes or apparel, or a six pack of sodas. The bag comes with an interior 15" padded laptop sleeve, side pockets for a U-Lock or water bottle, and ergonomic straps and back panel for extra comfort.

Poler Stuffable Backpack

The Stuffable Pack uses the same design as the Poler Rambler, but is constructed using lightweight ripstop fabric so you can stuff it into its own attached stuff sack. Perfect for stowing in your jacket pocket or car, this little pack is there when you need it, and packs down to keep a low profile when you're done.
