Over two decades ago we made our first Chrome bag with a Juki sewing machine, a few yards of industrial-grade nylon, military grade truck tarpaulin, and the commitment to making durable useful gear that works on and off the bike. We didn’t have money to make a buckle that could hold the weight of a loaded messenger bag, so we salvaged seatbelt buckles out of junkyard cars. An icon was born. Our original messenger bag with its seatbelt buckle quickly became a favorite of professional messengers around the world. More importantly, our way of making things was defined. We call it Freedom through limitations.

Iconic seat belt buckle
Our iconic quick-release buckle with integrated bottle opener is tough enough to stay buckled in any kind of situation but easy to release when you need to get out of your gear.
We design and build our own things and care about how stuff is made. Everything we make is purpose built. Street-tested by our own crew and professionals around the world. If it doesn’t have a purpose, it’s gone.
Living The City
Beyond the products we make, Chrome is a way of living the city. It’s working hard, playing hard and riding hard. 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.
