    The be-all and end-all bag thread

    Please post all bag debate questions here.

    We need more stickies!!!

    Of course, this post is sober, so that probably won't happen...

    I love my Chrome Kremlin.

    I like my Chrome Citizen. Carries everything I need although at times it can be a tight fit. Maybe I'll get a bigger one next time.

    Ok, wtf is the point of this thread if it's all "I love my brand XXX"?

    Hey, thanks for the insightful review and comparison with other products on the market. Now I can go forth and make an informed purchasing decision.

    I think my shoes are getting sticky.

    made the jump from a timbuk2 bag to a chrome ranchero. two very different bags. I've used a timbuk2 bag since '97 with no problem (survived a motorcycle accident). But this year I needed more room and looked into the reload bag. I noticed they didn't have a sternum strap so in came the chrome. So far I like it; it's a backpack style, more room than the timbuk2 and the more important aspect is: it looks good.

    That's my story about bags. The end.

    Actually, you can add a sternum / waist strap to all of their messenger style bags for something like $3. I put one on mine and it works great. Hella better than the cheapo over-the-shoulder "messenger" bag from Anvil or something that I had been using before.

    I love my Bagjack.

    Hated my Timbuk2, hated my Ortlieb. Chrome.. Not bad, but not good either.

    I would like to try Reload bags, my friend has one and it looks very comfy and durable.

    I love my ghetto messenger bag conversion. I've found you can get a cheap imitation mess bag and sew an old backpack strap on the sucker and you're good to go, my shiz is custom!

    R.E.Load Bags. Great people who make the best bags with the most custom options I've ever seen. Only thing I'll use, ever.

    I won't knock Timbuk2. I have one and I like it. It holds all my crap, resists the rain, and looks pretty sweet.

    Hey! he said bag debate! I'm disqualified but I still like to read on it "Best" bag is kinda impossible, since "different" is all that'll result if you try.
    I've been testing our bags everyday for years which is cool but kinda lame since I can have a new one anytime but can't wear it (still testing my first one, seeing wear & tear means you gotta wear and tear...maybe I'll put a ferret in there, that'll be a good test)

    I love my reload bag. Nice people, small business, handmade bags by kids in philly. It sucked having to wait a month for a bag, but it was worth it.
