The Chrome brand came from humble beginnings. A simple juki sewing machine, a few yards of cordura, and truck tarpaulin – although, this was quality military grade. This simplicity was bounded by one commitment, and that is to make bombproof gear for bike messengers, fixed freestyle riders, and everyone else who wanted a durable bag to store their most valuable possessions.
Two decades on, this commitment has not faltered. Chrome is not about fashion, it is about utility and mobility, and this is at the core of every design. Chrome’s Citizen Messenger Bag is one design urban commuters around the world covet.
And why wouldn’t it be? With their innovations like load stabilising strap, five bar webbing, the iconic quick release buckle, and dual wall construction – the Citizen Messenger Bag is a prime example of what Chrome gives you. Plus, it features a weatherproof outer shell and military-grade truck-tarpaulin liner.
Other features include daisy-chain mounting loops for attaching carabineer or bike lights, and an industrial-strength Velcro, accessory-mounting shoulder strap. To ensure comfort, Chrome has added an EVA foam-padded shoulder strap with a cross-chest load stabilizer for increased rideability.
There is also an integrated bottle opener (something that will come in handy on a sunny day or a night out with your buddies), internal fasteners and tactical sleeves for securing up to 17” laptops, and reflective straps for night visibility.
