Chrome Industries Hondo
A practical and stylish option for day to day use, the Hondo has 21 litres of capacity including a padded laptop sleeve which will fit laptops up to 15” in size. Designed primarily for urban commuters, the Hondo’s boxy design and wide opening zip makes it easy to haul stuff in and out of the bag, whilst its padded back and adjustable ergonomic shoulder straps (with optional chest strap) ensure a comfortable fit both on and off the bike, even if you’re carrying quite a bit of weight.
The Hondo is towards the smaller (and cheaper!) end of the Chrome backpack range, but nevertheless has several features which make it easy to make optimal use of that space. The outside of the bag is finished with a horizontal zipped pocket allowing for easy access to wallet, keys etc., two low profile side pockets (ideal for water bottles) and Molle webbing on the front.
The Hondo is made from sturdy 1050D nylon with a water resistant 300D tarp liner and is well up to the day to day abuse an urban cyclist’s bag will inevitably be put through. It is finished with subtle reflective strips on the straps and face of the bag for enhanced front and rear nighttime visibility.
Although primarily designed as a cycling backpack the Hondo will be equally at home off the bike for day trips hiking, sightseeing, you name it, the Hondo is probably up to it!
