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.
Messenger bags and backpacks are great for grabbing our gear, putting it on our backs and heading from point A to point B. Unfortunately, if the bag doesn't have great organization and pockets, items can get lost at the bottom or worst yet, damaged. Chrome's Small Utility Pouch is made in the USA and features a super tough 1050d Military-grade nylon exterior and a water-resistant tarpaulin liner to keep a wide range of essential small items safe. Perfect for quickly transporting small and important items from bag to bag or work to play.
