The Chrome Metropolis is designed as a ride along companion. It's perfect for those out there who wish to travel and want to carry things with them in a lightweight bag.

However, the Chrome Citizen is for the more serious traveler who wants to invest in something more suited for business. It's designed to carry a larger 17in laptop and its pockets will hold plenty of gadgets. Buy the Citizen if you want to do something casual. Buy the Metropolis if you're going to a meeting or conference.

One of the most striking features of the bag is the seatbelt buckle on the shoulder strap, which is a tip of the hat to the brand’s origins.

The Gadgeteer

The heavy duty shoulder strap / buckle combo is best suited for someone that has to walk or bike long distances, unlike myself, who only has a short walk from the parking lot to my cube every morning.
