Chrome Industries was established in 1995 with a Juki sewing machine, a few yards of military grade fabric and seat-belt buckles cut-out of old cars. The mission was simple: create bombproof bags that are practical and functional. Chrome's iconic messenger bag with quick release buckle was born. Over the last 17 years, Chrome continues to develop useful and durable gear for people who live and ride the city. Street-tested by professional messengers, fixed freestyle riders and urban commuters, Chrome makes bags, footwear and apparel that adapt to the changing and unpredictable nature of the city.
