Next time a bike courier turns up at your office, take a look at the messenger bag they’re carrying. It’ll probably be a Chrome Industries bag. They’re easy to spot; just look for the signature seatbelt buckle on the strap. There’s a good reason that most of the pro riders who live, work and cycle across the city all day, every day swear by them. They’re made tough. The Buran III is no exception – but this version also includes tech-friendly features, like a big, padded laptop sleeve that will take a 17” Macbook Pro. You also get quick access zippered pockets for your phone and a top haul handle to get you from street level to office. The iconic metal buckle will stay buckled in any situation but releases quickly to take the load off. It also saves you from having to pull the strap of a heavy bag over your head. Look closely and you’ll also see it has a hidden extra – an integrated bottle opener so you can crack open a beer after a hard day’s work

Sustainability through Longevity - Chrome makes incredibly durable products built to last a lifetime. They stand behind the quality of their bags with a lifetime warranty against manufacturing and material defects.
Over two decades ago, Chrome made their first bag using a Juki sewing machine, a few yards of industrial-grade nylon, some military grade truck tarpaulin and a seatbelt buckle salvaged from an old car. That original messenger bag with its signature buckle was soon adopted by bike couriers across the globe and became an urban icon.
Today, Chrome Industries remain committed to making useful, durable gear for people who live, work and ride in the city. Everything they do celebrates the beating heart of the city and the unique collisions of creativity, culture and community that form the essential elements of urban life. These products are purpose-built for those who work hard, play hard and ride hard.
