If you're a professional or amateur photographer, you're going to need durable gear to carry your camera essentials. We designed our Chrome camera bags with purpose, function, and most importantly - durability - because camera gear ain't cheap. Made for those on the go who need a no B.S. camera bag.
Niko Camera Backpack - A camera pack that doesn’t look like one. The Chrome Niko Camera Backpack was specifically designed for street photographers by street photographers. The way to get into this bag is through the back panel, which has a full zip entry to get to your gear. Once inside, you’ll see the removable padded modular dividers to organize your camera bodies, lenses and other gear combos - just the way you like it. There’s a top pocket for additional storage and easy access to get to your SD cards, camera, phone, wallet, extra batteries, and other smaller essentials. The front pocket has a low-key side zipper that reveals a plush padded compartment for your 13” Macbook Pro or tablet. Have no fear, the 1050d ballistic nylon on the outside helps keep the bag weather and abrasion resistant with a 400d tarp liner interior for reinforcement. The front of the camera bag has adjustable - and reflective - velcro straps that can hold tripods, a skateboard, or other bulky stuff. We have to give an honorable mention to the water bottle side pocket, because everyone gets thirsty after a long day of shooting.
Niko Camera Sling 2.0 - Sometimes you don’t need a whole bag to carry your camera essentials. The Chrome Niko Camera Sling 2.0 was made to ride, point, and shoot - all at the same time. How? The quick-access and water-resistant zipper located at the top of the sling makes it super convenient to zip open and pull out your camera. The inside has a soft tricot liner that protects and can hold one body, two lenses and other small gear. The outside of the sling is made of our infamous tarp material to keep moisture off. The best part is you can wear this camera sling cross-body or around your waist - giving you easy access to your gear either way. Not convinced?

BLCKRM 22X Kadet Sling - If you don’t know, now you know. The Chrome Kadet Sling is a fan favorite and part of our Chrome Heritage Collection - it also makes for a great makeshift camera bag. We specifically wanted to call out the BLCKCHRM 22X version of the Kadet because of the lightweight, weather and tear resistant 22X nylon shell, and the water-resistant zippers. The cross-body sling comes with our iconic aluminum seat belt buckle - that also doubles as a bottle opener. For those of you who like to shoot and ride, there’s a removable stabilizer strap that’s ideal to use when you don’t want the bag to move around while you’re on the go. There’s a padded U-lock holster located on the back of the sling so you can ride and not worry about it crushing your stuff. The inside of the Kadet doesn’t have the all around padded protection compared to our camera bags, but wrapping with a sweater can provide an extra cushion. Deep dive with our gear fitter video on the Kadet Sling to see more for yourself.
Niko Camera Insert Case - A cube to keep your camera in. The Chrome Niko Camera Insert Case is designed as a convenient and portable cube that has loop attachments in the back that can be secured to our Chrome Citizen Messenger, Mini Metro Messenger, Buran III, Warsaw 2.0 Messenger Backpack, and Civvy Tote. The ripstop drawstring closure on the top makes it easy to get into your gear and keep it protected from the elements. Inside the case has a soft tricot liner with adjustable padded dividers to fit your digital or analog camera gear. The front pocket has a coated zipper liner to keep wet stuff out and your stuff protected - like SD cards, cables, and a batteries. The Chrome Niko Camera Insert Case can turn any bag into a camera bag.
