ChromeRostov Backpack

Equipped for the concrete jungle.

Blending clean, function-driven design with rugged Cordura fabric, the Chrome Rostov is built to withstand heavy use and abuse from daily commutes on your bike. Its PU-coated main opening sheds light moisture from seeping into the bag, should you encounter a shower mid-ride. Its EVA foam back panel is textured to reduce sweat build-up and pressure points, while ergonomic shoulder straps evenly distribute heavy loads to alleviate uncomfortable pinching.

This commuter pack comfortably holds your important documents, laptop, and miscellaneous accessories without 'em sloshing around inside the pack, thanks to the internal organizer and dedicated laptop sleeve. Side compression straps provide a slim, streamlined fit, also securing a water bottle for proper hydration. Additionally, its external zip pocket helps you stash and retrieve important items on-the-fly, such as your phone, wallet, and keys.

Great Backpack!

    A great backpack for school/commuting. It has a large interior and the straps are very comfortable. The backpack itself is very light which can be a good thing or a bad thing. It doesn't have much structure to it, so if you have a lot of heavy oddly shaped things in there, it can be a bit uncomfortable on your back.

    My main complaint is simply that I ordered the sea/indigo color and although the picture displays a dark blue backpack, what I received was a baby powder blue!

    Great Backpack!

    Nice Versatile Pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The Rostov is a very versatile daypack. Lightweight and comfortable without excessive bells, whistles and too many pockets. Very simple design with versatile materials. Nice for everyday use and works well as a overnight travel pack for short business trips.

    Hey Michael, thank you for the great review. I was stoked to hear you like the Backpack!

    Chrome's Done It Again!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    You can't ever really go wrong with on of Chrome's products, and this backpack reiterated that belief after using it just a few times.
    I decided to buy it to use as an everyday commuter mainly because of the reliable durability and waterproofing.

    The backpack has a massive main compartment. I could definitely use it for a long weekend trip if I wanted to go minimal and I can use it in almost any weather condition and it holds up super well.

    Overall, super rad backpack with some pretty awesome color options. I got mine in the fir/orange and am always getting complimented.

    Good pack with some flaws

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    -Nice tough materials and construction
    -Good capacity (23L), enough for run to school and clothes for a weekend
    -Handy Bottle sleeve
    -Comfy foam back panel keeps it in place on and off the bike and doesn't let what you're carrying poke into your back.
    -Straps feel sturdy but you do have to run them a bit looser to keep the yoke (dunno what else to call it) from digging into your neck.
    -Very stylish IMO, nice clean design and I like the colorway.

    -TERRIBLE laptop sleeve, loose on my new surface and my quite old and quite thick 15" macbook. Nothing to keep the laptop from moving around.
    -No zippered pockets, key lanyard, on the inside, just a couple loose pockets

    Good pack with some flaws

    Great review Russell!

    Just a quick update, took this pack as my only bag on a 4 day trip to Denver. Was pushing it a bit but it still carried great with a very full load. Probably walked about 20 miles with it during the trip and it did great. Also of note, the water bottle pouch holds my 40oz hydroflask. Lovin the bag!
