Review – Chrome Industries Barrage Cargo Waterproof Cycling Backpack

Chrome Industries Barrage Cargo Backpack Review
Chrome Industries are an icon in the world of bicycle courier luggage. More than twenty years ago, in the city of Boulder (Colorado) the brand created the sling messenger bag out of seatbelt buckles and straps, five bar webbing, and a double-lined waterproof truck tarpaulin interior. Their tag-line reads 'Building Indestructible Gear Since 1995'—a claim they reliably hold true to.

The Chrome Barrage Cargo Backpack is a new leading light in their indestructible messenger bag waterproof backpack line-up—created to be the ultimate roll-top bike messenger rucksack. Capable of carry your daily cycle commute load or your weekend adventure kit—this backpack is as versatile and hardcore as they come.

The Barrage Cargo is made from abrasion resistant 1050D Nylon, with a welded waterproof truck tarpaulin liner, and a classic waterproof roll-top closure. The design makes it a watertight load carrier—with the cavernous main compartment safely accommodating 22 litres of gear, including a 13-inch laptop.

With your gear housed securely inside, you can sling the Barrage Cargo over your shoulders and tighten up the foam-padded shoulder straps; clipping together the signature Chrome Industries sternum strap buckle. The padded straps and EVA foam back panel evenly and comfortably distribute the weight of the load on your back, whilst remaining breathable and secure.

On the outside of the back is the adjustable 5-Point Cargo Net System, which has become symbolic of the Chrome Barrage Cargo range. This strap net allows you to carry extra gear safely and securely on the outside of the pack; whether that be a delivery box, a wetsuit, or a waterproof jacket. The external cargo net, combined with the two side pockets for bottles or a mini U-lock, adds great versatility to the Chrome Cargo Backpack's carrying capabilities.

Built to last, with classic and unforgettable style—the Chrome Barrage Backpack is the best bicycle commuter backpack I have tested to date. Keep haulin' ass, Chrome.
