HOW TO CHOOSE A MESSENGER BAG
Our original US-built urban messenger bags come in three sizes, and we've got one that'll do just what you need it to. The Citizen is our classic all-day bag, the Mini Metro is compact and versatile, and the Metropolis is ready for anything.
Chrome is Urban mobility. We make simple, functional gear Built with industrial-strength materials 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. Made for living the city.
Size is the most important factor in choosing a bag. Consider what you'll carry on an average day, and also about the most you'd ever need to carry. Our bigger bags compress significantly when they're empty, so there's less of a penalty to sizing up than you might think. See the handy chart for reference.
Built using waterproof materials and ultra-rugged construction methods, all US-built Chrome messenger bags are weather-resistant. They'll keep your stuff dry in any weather. The Mini Metro and Citizen feature a welded-waterproof liner, making them 100% weatherproof. Protecting your gear from the elements is essential, and with these bags you won't have to worry about getting caught out in it.
When we first started building messenger bags over 20 years ago, we needed a tough quick-release buckle to use on our bags. Off-the-shelf options weren't cutting it, so we went to the junkyard, cut a seatbelt buckle out of a salvage car, and our iconic buckle was born. It's durable as hell, easy to open and close even with a heavy load, and it looks great. Plus, you can open a beer with the adjacent slider.

We take pride in building the toughest bags right here in the USA.
