Original and Iconic taken to the next level. We built the BLCKCHRM Citizen with a Hypalon exterior and military-grade liner. Guaranteed for life.


We’ve been making the Citizen since 1995. Our iconic seatbelt buckle gets fully loaded bags off without having to lift them over your head. We designed the Citizen to be bombproof so we make every BLCKCHRM™ Citizen twice. Constructed with black on black digi camo military-grade truck tarpaulin liner. The outer shell of the BLCKCHRM™ Citizen is then made from Hypalon. Each bag is finished with a full-grain leather panel with de-bossed Winged-Lion, herringbone webbing, and rubberized buckles. The BLCKCHRM™ Citizen builds on our commitment to making functional goods that last a lifetime.

Great usage and good looks in tons of situations
Great Bag, not only for biking. Use it as a city bag when on biz trips. Can fit a bunch of stuff in, including laptop (in my own sleeve) water bottle, papers, magazines etc. Love and recommend it.

All Black Everything
Chrome gear is known for being damn near indestructible and this bag is no exception. The Citizen bag is one of the go to bags for the messenger bag crowd for good reason. It fits excellent, is secure when riding, and has enough room for daily essentials along with a couple of nice stash spots for your flask and any other goodies you might be carrying. The BLCKCHRM colorway is just sick. Minimalist and industrial for the all black everything aesthetic. Dope bag from a dope company. Keep doing what you do!!

dope bag ;)
The black seat belt buckle paint starts to chips off after a while and will rust if out in the rain, outside scratches easily but other than expected wear and tear it's a great bag!

Metal Gear Solid
I've got a Citizen for every occasion and this one is reserved for when I need a bulletproof, sexy and stealthy solution - special ops version of an iconic classic, functionally as BADASS as it looks.

Making a perfect bag more perfect
By far the best bag Chrome makes - I have 3 other Citizens and commute daily - the quality, toughness and aesthetics of the BLCKCHRM exceeds all of their other bags. Drawbacks? It's all black and has no reflective material so it's hard to see at night... but I always have lights on my bags anyway so no problem. Buy!
