Ready to take a beating.
Like all Chrome products, the Chrome Knurled Welded Race Seatbag is built for life in the big city. As we all know, you have to be tough to survive in the big city. When it comes to this bag, tough is an understatement. Built from PU-coated 600-denier polyester with welded seams, the Race Seatbag will stand up to anything you, Mother Nature, or the mean streets throw at it.
The Knurled Welded Race Seatbag is designed to carry the bare necessities — a small multi-tool, a tube, a couple cartridges, keys, and a little emergency cash. Don’t count on this seatbag to carry your lunch unless you’re a very, very light eater. You can, however, count on it to get its contents to your destination completely unharmed, even in a full-blown downpour.

Somewhat flawed design, but I like it.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
So as a previous reviewer noted, the bag is impossible to install if you are looking at the website photograph of the bag, which shows the Chrome name facing the ground. The problem is the looping strap which holds it to the saddle rails, is sewed to the bag and cannot be adjusted. Usually not a problem, but in this case, the plastic loop that you insert the strap into and then pull back and velcro, is sewed too close to the top center of the bag. Therefore you have to fish the strap into the rails and somehow get you fingers in there enough to push the strap through the loop and bring it back out of the rails. It literally can't be done. So the only other choice is to mount the bag with the logo pointing towards the sky, which then places the plastic strap look on the bottom of the bag where there is lots of room. The other design issue is where the strap is located on the bag - fairly close to the narrow end of the bag. This means that the bag hangs almost parallel to the ground rather than snugly against the saddle.
So if you don't mind a horizontal bag that has the logo on top, you will like the rest of the bag. I was able to put a spare tube, stubby 15mm wrench, and a mini pump, plus two levers in it, yet it still maintains a nice trim profile. The inside is lined, so I would presume it is relatively waterproof. I will probably add my own strap to make it mount closer to the saddle, but otherwise I like it much better than the traditional style of saddle bag.
Are you serious?
The design of this seat bag is flawed. It's really hard to figure how to attach, until you determine that it needs to be mounted with the word CHROME upside down! Give me a break!
What is the volume for this bag?
