Mind boggling volume, but slim and manageable when empty. The ideal bag for heavy-duty messenger work. In addition to the cross-chest stabilizer strap, the Kremlin messenger bag also includes a waist strap attachment point. Extra features include a secret stash pocket and front utility buckles for external rain gear storage. Designed for the long haul...ten hours a day in the rain, mud, snow, and grit. Our messenger bags are constructed with the most rugged assembly of industrial materials and hardware available: military spec. seam binding, 1000d Cordura shell, 18oz. weatherproof truck tarp liner, and nylon 69 thread.
Strengths: durable, waterproof, will carry a weeks worth of laundry
Weaknesses: too large to be practice for most, many of the straps can be too short, especially when carrying large items.
I used this bag during my brief stint as a bike messenger last winter. It is huge. How huge? You can carry one of those file boxes law firms use completely enclosed in this bag. Frankly, it has enough volume to carry more stuff then you can comfortably carry on your back due to the weight. If you're a messenger, this bag works well, if you're anybody else, get yourself some panniers and save your back the pain. I do like my Chrome Citizen for carrying small loads for quick errands, but your back has a limit as to what it can/should carry.
