San Francisco’s Chrome Bags has developed a cult following among many looking to get the absolute most out of their bags. Their dedication to quality construction and durability is unparalleled and the choice of many bike-riders around the world. With each bag designed with the intentions of lasting a lifetime, it comes as no surprise the engineering that goes into each bag and the important choice in materials. Military-spec seams, Cordura materials and heavy duty truck tarp liners are all the components for many of Chrome’s bags. Throughout Chrome’s comprehensive range of bags, we highlight both the large-sized Metropolis messenger bag and the Pawn roll-top bag. The Metropolis features a free-floating liner to insure no seams are exposed and the contents of the bag are safe and dry. As well, the Chrome trademark buckle strap allows for quick adjustment and removal. The roll-top Pawn is Chrome’s innovative approach to the waterproof backpack. Easy to access external pockets include coated YKK zippers as well as daisy chain lash points and numerous different straps and durable hardware. The main compartment features a fully waterproof liner with high frequency RF welded seams. To ensure no water penetrates the opening, the roll-top closure keeps things tight and compact. Both of the bags seen here are available in multiple sizes/colors as well as other styles over at ChromeBags.com.
