The Iconic Chrome Seatbelt Buckle

After building our first run of bags in the mid-90’s, we got tired of pulling heavy bags over our heads and decided to find a better way. We visited a local auto scrapyard, started cutting seatbelts out of old cars and an icon was born. Tough enough to stay buckled in any kind of situation but easy to release when you need to get out of your gear – Chrome’s signature messenger sling closure.

  • These bags look even cooler in person than they do on my TV!

    I first saw this bag in the movie "A interview with God". I thought the bag in the movie looked really cool and sturdy. After purchasing one for myself I was really impressed with the quality. The bag looks even cooler in person. I'm Glad to see companies like Chrome are still making quality products and giving people what they pay their hard earned money for. Thanks again to the people at Chrome, and keep up the good work. All the best, Brian from NYC.

    Well worth the money.

    I used the new bag for the first time today on a scout for a commercial I'm working on. The bag performed flawlessly. The construction is perfect. I was able to carry everything needed with room to spare.

    Fits all the stuff I want to haul and easy to carry!

    I've been wanting one of these for awhile and I finally got one! I had a few questions about the inner dimensions which were answered quickly and accurately, and it's big enough for me to haul all my music stuff (sampler, ear buds, and other stuff) and it's easier to carry than an over-the-shoulder messenger bag.

    Solid, Simple, Quality, but perhaps too simple..

    It's a great, simple, good quality bag. I use it while commuting on my motorcycle. There are many features that competitors have that this one is lacking. The inside waterproof liner on mine is quite bulky and stiff. This causes the bag the crease in odd, sometimes uncomfortable ways. I'm hoping it'll loosen up with time/use. One review I read before purchasing described cutting the liner out. I now understand. The integrated bottle opener is pressed into service every Friday when I hit the garage fridge after parking my bike.

    Gets the job done and looks good doing it.

    Bag looks great and functions well. The strap feels a little flimsy and connects to the massive buckle in an awkward manner and the bag should make provisions to securely hold a water bottle and it doesn't. Other than that it's a very good bag and I'd buy it again.
