Posted this in commuter area too, but I think the ssfg crowd has their finger more on the messenger bag pulse. I've been looking at decent sized messenger bags to fit my 17" laptop plus other bits. I narrowed it down to the Chrome Metropolis bag and Crank Brothers Messenger Fully Monty bag. It is about 70 bucks cheaper but I can't find any reliable sources for more pictures or reviews. I am leaning toward the Chrome because of their reputation for making bomb-proof bags but for a price. Can anyone give me insight to the Crank Brothers bag? If not I'm just gonna get weird and get the Chrome bag.
