  • Chrome Victor Utility Bag Review

    chrome victor (7)

    I’ve been running the Chrome Victor for about three weeks now and have been loving it. This is the perfect utility bag for those days when you only need to bring the essentials. The main pouch is big enough for most miniature u-locks, a multi-tool, a compact windbreaker, your wallet and maybe another small goodie. The phone pocket fits an iPhone perfectly, even with the separate neoprene case I’ve got. This USA made bag also features Chrome’s signature buckle with means to hold your D ring of keys (it also opens bottles quite well), reflective daisy chain mounting loops for a light or key ring, and is made 1000 denier cordura for the long haul. My keys are pictured inside the bag since I don’t appreciate the noise they make while riding.

    If you only need to carry a couple things, the Victor is your answer. This bag will take what you’d normally try to stuff in your jeans and put it comfortably on your back. If you’re looking to carry more, I’d suggest a day pack or sorts since this little guy fills up quickly.  Check out a few more details of the new Victor utility bag by Chrome Industries below.

  • Chrome Industries: Bravo & Victor

    Here are a couple new products from Chrome, the Bravo and Victor.

    The Bravo is a weatherproof rolltop bag that can handle your daily sundries, including a laptop, and still leave you room for a few grocery items on the way home. It expands to 40L, made in the USA and guaranteed for life.

    The Victor, which I’m really excited about, is small utility bag designed to keep your daily essentials all in one place. Often, like many commuters, I’ll find myself leaving the house and only bringing a lock, phone, wallet, tool roll, rain coat and lights. Nothing big enough to warrant a backpack or pannier, yet too many items to fit in your jeans. So a bag or the pannier is usually what I bring. This Victor has just enough room for these items and is small enough so that you’re not rubbing up on everyone in the bar with a large backpack. Also US made and guaranteed for life.

    Few more detail shots below.
