While sometimes convenient, standard messenger bags can be large and uncomfortable. And honestly, you rarely carry 2,000 cubic inches’ worth of stuff on your bike. That’s why Chrome made the Mini Buran. Its 915-cubic-inch capacity is plenty for 95% of your commutes, and you won’t have a bag the size of your cousin flapping around behind you while you ride.
The Mini Buran is made with tough, waterproof 1000 denier Cordura. The liner is 600 denier truck tarpaulin. The integrated, padded sleeve fits a 13-inch laptop. There are also plenty of pockets to keep you organized. The bag also features Chrome’s cross-body shoulder strap with signature seatbelt buck closure. Chrome even included mounting loops for carabiners or lights.

To start this bag gets an A++ on standing upright. The bag this replaces Never Stood on it own and kept falling over. I got this bag for art. I found the other bag I had..had a main pocket and everything just shifts and falls out. This bag separate pockets that hold my pens,pencils ,mini brushes and drawing books. And today art world - tech goes hand and hand so I have my ipad and head phones in the tech bag ..that is inside this bag. All fits snug! The bag is interesting. All the youtube reviews show you people pushing out the main pocket. This makes all the videos look like your stuff in crammed in and your out of space. But the reality is you can push out the bag a little more..put that one more "thing" in the bag. The handle is more comfortable then it looks in the image. This is another feature that sold the bag for me. My older bag didn't have this..And just moving the bag in the car with out the handle is kinda of a pain. the velcro on the strap is another A++ .when I do live paintings..I could use it to hold my brushes..(not that it was intended for that).. any artist that paints has to find a space to hold brushes.. I was bouncing back and forth..do I want this bag..or go smaller with the Chekhov or Kadet..and all very tempting..I went with this..The color doesn't bother me..even if I like black better..since black is unassuming for a messenger bag..I am happy with this product..and I have hopes I will come back and get the chekhov or kadet in the future.. Time to sell more art..
other thing I want to put out there..I am a big guy..and lots of things are made for skinny people. There very little my size effect this bag. Maybe the buckle is a little higher but that is about it.
This company is great to deal with. Has Great Customer Service. Some C.S. makes you think your doing them a favor and unhelpful. NOT this one, follow up and friendly attitude.
For Chrome designers, and maybe the newer bags they addressed this. On the bottom, it would be nice to have a bracket,stint or something so the corners doesn't cave in. It would be nice to have military type webbing on a part of it..just to carry my water bottle on the outside..or an outside..water bottle holder.
Do your research before buying

Why complain about a bag that is designed for purpose that it does perfectly. This is a small sized bag, made for smaller portable equipment, if someone wants a larger size then go with the bigger version, obviously. There are pockets in the front for pens and pencils, calculators etc...Shipping was fast and the item arrived in wrapped pristine condition. Will buy from B.C again.

Just purchased this bag. Was looking for a messenger style bag for laptop/IPad (really would use it on a limited basis on my bike) and this was a perfect alternative. Size, construction, comfort and amount of room in this (little) bag is awesome!
Great for business and travel
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I bought this as a gift for my dad. He was looking for a messenger bag and was unsure of what brands to look into. I told him I had him covered and what he will get will be top notch. Low and behold, he loves the Chrome Mini Buran Laptop Messenger Bag. It is extremely durable, light and is able to hold quite a lot! I would recommend this to any person looking for a messenger bag. This will certainly outperform any other brand out there! It also comes with a lifetime warranty - cant beat that!
I'm wondering about this bag, can it fit a laptop + a few documents + bose qc 25 in the case + a botlle of water. I'm hesitating with the normal version of the buran but man 10 more liters that is huge !
Can you actually fit a 15" laptop in this...
Can you actually fit a 15" laptop in this bag?
I know it says "up to 13", but I want a small bag, and want to use it for my laptop, too.
You can fit a 15 in laptop in there, just not in the designated laptop sleeve. I love chrome and I think if you wanted a bag from them that is still pretty small but will fit your laptop in the sleeve I would check out the link bellow.
