The Bravo is one of the most versatile backpacks made by Chrome. They've designed it to be a compact laptop backpack that can also make the weekly grocery run or carry a wheel set to the races. They've placed the padded laptop sleeve on the outside of the bag so it's easily accessible. The pocketless welded-waterproof main compartment holds 2-3 stacked 6-packs of beer and has a Cordura® and rip-stop, nylon gusset that extends to secure larger loads. When not needed, it tucks out of the way inside the bag. The Bravo's exterior cross-compression strap system can be used to secure a wheel set, helmet, and wet gear.

“Bombproof, weatherproof, laptop backpack. I want a laptop backpack that won\'t leak when it rains, protects the laptop properly while still being easily accessible. And also big enough to throw in my gym gear - shoes, clothes, and all - when i need to. This thing does all that, while i can still fit in few groceries if i want to. So, i\'m a happy with the bag!”
“Good daybag. Does everything i need it to, plus it\'s comfortable and reliable in all weather!”
“There\'s a lot of space in this one. The extra room in the fold out - roll out section make for huge capacity! Chrome backpacks are comfortable, robust, stylish and practical. I use this to transport a full days worth of gear - laptop, tablet, books, gym gear - the lot. Riding 25 kilometres each way for the daily commute is made easier with the comfort of this pack - and the night series just helps me feel that bit safer on the late night return journey. 4th chrome bag i\'ve picked up from rushfaster. I\'ve been really happy with every one of them.”
“very comfortable and robust great for cycling. .”
“Great Bag. Bag looks great, not that functional for a everyday bag. Only the short pocket at the front and a deep flat pocket infront of the laptop and the large main waterproof compartment which is usually empty or just holding my water bottle and other things that are too large to fit in the front like a sunglasses case.... I bought it for the looks and already knew that it wasn\'t going to be that functional from the specs, not good for organising a lot of clutter.”
“Bombproof. Great bag. Bought this for commuting on my pushy. It is bombproof. However be aware that it is heavy due to the quality materials. Not a huge fan of how it \'expands\' vertically but will do in a pinch. Would have preferred zips down the sides to expand horizontally. Great bag but will reserve for days when the weather is dodgy.”
“Safe, secure and solid. Love this pack! Well built - my laptop and ipad are secure and room for lots more - it\'s a great size and the capacity to expand is brilliant for those extra bits and pieces - but most of all i feel safe riding at night with the reflective rear panel.”
