It’s working hard, playing hard and riding hard. At Chrome Industries, we believe that the city shapes us as much as we shape the city around us. Living the City is where creativity, risk, community, and pure grit come together to make a lasting impression on our surroundings.


the first chrome bag was Made with a juki sewing machine, a few yards of Cordura, military grade truck tarpaulin, 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.


Chrome has never wavered from its commitment to making useful and durable gear for professional messengers, fixed freestyle riders, and urban commuters; people who live and ride in the city.
