I've been using a Bailey Works medium size super pro for a couple years now. I love it, it's a great bag, but I wanted something bigger, so recently I got a Chrome Metropolis. Partly because it's cheaper than a bigger Bailey Works, and partly because I just wanted to try something different. So I've been using it for a little over a week, commuting to work 25 miles r/t every weekday. It's working out great. It fits all my crap, plus extra stuff when I stop by the grocery store on the way home or something. It's comfy on my back and shoulder.
One thing that just seems weird to me though is the stabilizer strap. On the Bailey Works, it's sewn onto the bag around the center and connects below the buckle (around the sternum area or slightly below) into a clip that slides up and down the main strap, so it's pretty adjustable. The Chrome is sewn on at the corner and attaches to a non moveable clip above the buckle (closer to the shoulder), coming from under your armpit, which is the part I don't get. It doesn't seem to stabilize it at all. The bag's still able to swing around on the strap side even with the stabilizer connected.
Is there something i'm missing? I just don't see the point of this design..
