A Bag Built for the City

Taking a cue from the toughest weight class in boxing we built the Welterweight Citizen with lighter materials for a leaner, meaner version of our classic messenger bag. Engineered to withstand both the elements and the daily rigors of the urban environment, the Welterweight Citizen is a streamlined version of our original seat belt buckle messenger.

Lightweight Fabrics

The Welterweight collection brings some of the most advanced fabrics in our collection to our classic bag styles. The 500d nylon exterior and 400d tarpaulin lining clock in at less than half the weight of the materials used in our everyday Chrome bags. The reflective TPE panels are crafted from some of the most lightweight retroreflective material available. Light as a feather, still packs a punch.

Buckle

The seatbelt buckle has been an icon of Chrome bags since the beginning. What started as a plastic buckle cut from a car at the scrap yard turned into our super-tough (but heavy) steel buckle. After extensive testing, we developed an aluminum version of the buckle that is almost half the weight of the steel buckle while still retaining serious tensile strength.

    After a decade bought this to replace my husband's original messenger bag. Same great quality with a better buckle!

    Very Good Bag - Get This One, NOT The Terrace Brief!

    4

    Overall a solid messenger bag - just be sure that's what you're after! I originally bought the new "Terrace Brief Sling" in the Modal Collection, but that is NOT a good move: you're far better off sticking with a traditional messenger bag. The strap is solid, wide, and the seatbelt-style buckle means no risk of it coming undone. I'm relatively tall (6'2") and the straps have to be loosened all the way, so don't get this if you're much taller than me! Another aspect to consider is the compartment: it's spacious, but is really only one large compartment, so make sure you can deal with that (maybe buy an organizer/insert to help out). Another thing: as others have pointed out, a serious oversight is the lack of a handle to pick the bag up like a briefcase/duffle: that's just plain dumb on the part of Chrome. Otherwise though this is a tough, solidly built bag. The flap is wide and the straps (plus velcro) can cinch it down tightly so you don't need to worry about rain / snow getting in. Finally, just be sure a messenger bag is what you're after! If you're hauling a bunch of heavy stuff, then get a backpack - but if you've just got a laptop and a book or 2 and want something different from the standard turtle lookalike backpacks, this is a great option.

    I would recommend this based on quality and design.

    I like the quality and the pockets seem thoughtful. The color and fit are great and I already get compliments on it! I was concerned about the size (too big) but I like it more than I thought. I had to buy a padded case for my laptop (this was recommended) and everything seems organized and secure!

    The most comfortable bag I have ever worn

    5

    This bag is heavy, but you won't feel it at all when it's on you, the strap system keeps the weight and balance of the bag feeling great for hours of wearing it, and yesterday I walked in the rain for a hour, and everything inside was dry, a super good buy, and something I would recommend to anyone

    Durable & Flexible Daily Laptop Bag

    4

    This is my primary messenger and laptop bag for my 15" MacBook Pro. Straps and clips are tough and the material is thick enough to withstand daily use. Features are well thought out and make it really easy to pack around my laptop, sketch books, water bottles and accessories. Love the matte black buckle and other small details that really make this bag feel special.
