I met Travis at the spring Veloswap here in San Diego, and I liked what he had to offer. My Chrome Metropolis was proving too slim for my day to day needs, so I ordered a Large Deluxe Sling.
The bag arrived yesterday, and boy I'll tell you what, this thing is super rad.
It's almost too deep, I'm afraid I am going to fall into it's cavernous mouth and not be able to climb out.
OK, it's not that deep, but it's at least twice the depth of the Metropolis. Basically, this bag is exactly what I was looking for.
The Large Sling is not as polished as my Chrome Metro. There are no fancy seatbelt style buckles, no reflective straps, no top secret stash pockets... but the lack of refinement is more than made up for in utility, funtionality, and weight.
A true messenger bag for messengers.
I love my new bag.
