They don't make anything even close to what I've got anymore. I wish they did.

About Chrome... I think they make great stuff, but I'm worried that their beefiness could get in the way off the bike. I'm looking for a bag I can take anywhere and I'm nervous that the Chrome may not be up to that. I think that by the third time I had to explain to my 60 something boss/coworkers that 'yes, there is a giant, red seatbelt on my chest' I'd crack. I would love someone to tell me I'm wrong about this, cuz I'd buy that thing in a sec otherwise.

The Seagull suggestion is one I've considered. Their black bag doesn't seem to have a small size right now, but I may email them and see if that's about to change. They look worth the wait for that price.

FWIW This is the no-longer-made Pataguici bag.

Flat like a pancake and still water proof after putting pins in it. Googly eyes FTW.


Asymmetric strap makes everything sit nice. Also note the floss.
