Almost two decades ago the first Chrome bag was made with a Juki sewing machine, a few yards of Cordura™, military grade truck tarp, and the commitment to make bombproof gear that works on and off the bike. From the beginning, the drive for simple, useful and resourceful solutions led Chrome to make its original messenger bag with a salvaged seatbelt buckle. With innovations like the iconic quick-release buckle, load stabilizing strap, dual wall construction, and five bar webbing, the Chrome messenger bag became the bag of choice for working bike messengers around the world.
Over the last 17 years, Chrome has never waivered from its commitment to making useful and durable gear for people who live and ride in the city. Street-tested by professional messengers, fixed freestyle riders and urban commuters, Chrome makes street-tested bags, footwear and apparel that adapt to the changing and unpredictable nature of the city.
Chrome is not about fashion. Chrome is Utility and Mobility. We make simple, functional gear built with military grade materials and bike specific fit and features that work on the bike and in the bar. We make gear that protects people and their things from the elements without looking like you came from the mountains.
Tools for living the city.
