This $70 Commuter Backpack Is Made with Fighter Pilot-Grade Materials

Made with 1050 Denier nylon, the Soma commuter backpack by Chrome Industries does more than get you from A-to-B.


A commuter bag must do two things: carry your things and keep them safe and secure while doing so. Of course, a little comfort doesn’t hurt either. Chrome Industries’s Soma commuter backpack fulfills each of these prerequisites and then some. Modeled after their popular Soma Sling Messenger, the Soma Backpack, which is $50 off its usual $120 price tag right now (Olive only), is made with a 1050d nylon shell, also known as what the vests of a fighter pilot’s flak jacket was made from during WWII. It’s tear-, abrasion- and water-resistant and sports a carrying capacity of 22 liters. A laptop sleeve accommodates up to a 15-inch MacBook Pro and a flexible harness in tandem with an EVA foam back cushion rounds out the bag’s measurables.

Chrome Industries’s commuter backpack is just above 40 percent off today, a $50 savings.
