As urban skaters, bikers, free-runners and anyone else who’s ever hit the asphalt will tell you, the city can be a tough and unforgiving place. It can make for bruising encounters, and it’s also hard on your gear. That’s why Chrome make such rugged bags and packs – just like the Tensile Hip Pack. This compact bag is all about structure and strength. It’s built from a recycled, lightweight, laminated ripstop nylon and finished with Chrome’s Truss 5 Bar Construction for continuous reinforcement. So, it will withstand the wear and tear of everyday life in the city, whether you skate, ride or just need a durable companion for the morning commute
Recycled Materials - Shell is made with recycled nylon.
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.
