Chrome Mini Buran 13” Tablet Messenger Bag review

Here’s the world’s shortest review of the Chrome Mini Buran 13” Messenger Bag: This one has it all and is built tough enough to be backed by a lifetime guarantee. This particular bag by Chrome has a special zipper sleeve inside for a tablet up to 13" in size (So basically any tablet). And just look at the list of materials used here: weatherproof Cordura fabric, military-grade tarpaulin liner, EVA foam padding and an industrial-strength Velcro accessory shoulder mounting strap. All this plus an integrated bottle opener? To manufacturers of tablet messenger bags: This is your standard.


The Chrome Mini Buran might be best described as an accessory containing everything you’d expect in a messenger bag done well – extremely well. In appearance, the Mini Buran is the standard messenger bag large enough to carry any tablet up to 13" in size.

Weatherproof Cordura fabric and military-grade tarpaulin liner make up the Mini Buran messenger bag, and the all-important shoulder mounting strap includes industrial-strength Velcro. The strap may be adjusted and attached together with a quick-release buckle done up in a retro-like seatbelt style. How confident is Chrome that it will all stay together forever? How about a lifetime guarantee provided with every Chrome bag?

On the inside, things get better. The front flap closes and opens with a pair of plastic clip-locks plus a Velcro fastener. When opened, two pockets (one smartphone-sized, the other a zippered pocket for small accessories) and two pen holders are revealed. Behind this zippered pocket is a larger lined pocket and behind *that* is the zipper-enclosed pocket devoted to a laptop or tablet. Finally, on the rear-exterior is another large zipper pocket for storing A4 documents or magazines.
