Chrome is highly regarded for creating what are arguably the best messenger bags on the market. Experience as messengers and knowing what works well on the street and day-to-day items get hauled around translate into the design of each and every bag. While messenger bags are an iconic symbol of the urban cyclist and they're easy to access items from, the reality is, backpacks are more stable and comfortable. Chrome designed the Urban Ex Rolltop 18L Backpack as the best waterproof and super tough bag on the streets.Chrome knows you gotta keep rolling regardless of the weather so it added a watertight quick access compartment for essentials such as keys, phone, and wallet. The rest of the bag's contents are kept dry with radio-frequency welds for lightweight, waterproof construction. The 600-denier poly/nylon upper and durable synthetic rubber bottom pull double duty keeping water completely at bay. A roll-top closure makes it easy to get to items quickly and ensures that gear doesn't get soaked when you ride through a shower.For fit, Chrome instills a reworked two-strap harness for added comfort and adjustability fitting cyclists of all sizes. For additional storage, the Urban Ex 18L has five-bar handles for hauling extra gear and an iPad sleeve. Low profile reflective MOLLE webbing on the face and harness provide maximum visibility when heading back from the bar or a night spent studying at the library.
The Chrome Niko Backpack gives photography enthusiasts peace of mind when transporting prized equipment. As any camera bag should, it has a customizable main compartment, to keep your belongings safe. And the waterproof tarpaulin liner ensures that short of throwing this pack into a lake, your gear will be protected from water damage, which you'll appreciate next time you get stuck in an unforeseen rain storm.This bag is constructed out of 1000 denier nylon, with fully sealed tarpaulin liner, to ensure that your investment is protected from the weather. As with any proper camera bag, the body has customizable storage, so you can fine tune the carrying arrangement for all your gear. The weather resistant YKK zippers allow water to bead right off, and while they're not waterproof in the sense of being submersible, they'll keep even heavy rain from making an unplanned entrance into your pack. Up top, there's a separate zippered compartment that holds your odds and ends. The single messenger bag style strap is perfect for use on and off the bike, and features an unmistakable Chrome quick release buckle. The Chrome Niko Camera Backpack is available in a 11. 5L size, and in the color Black.
