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.

  • Great bag, even if you're a semi-small woman like me!

    I commute to and from the city on a regular basis, and I needed to upgrade from my chrome mini metro. I'm a 5'5" woman so I was looking for a bag that I could lug my 15" MacBook Pro and other EDC (e.g. water bottle, notebooks, books, etc) and would protect it all from the elements. The weather has been a bit frenetic lately (to put it lightly) and this bag has been great about protecting all of my belongings. The bag is also lightweight and stylish, and I don't worry about it getting scuffed by normal urban wear and tear.

    I LOVE this bag! I used to commute to work with a Chrome mini metro, but as I got more responsibilities in my work and life, I needed a bit more space to carry around my EDC (laptop, notebooks, books, water bottle, food, etc.) since my daily routine changed day-to-day. I also commute to and from the suburbs to the city on a regular basis, so I needed something that looked good and could also withstand the urban toughness. The Welterweight citizen messenger is a really attractive and tough as nails bag; I love the color, and the material is really amazing – it's light and still extremely durable. It has kept all of my stuff safe from the elements, especially since we've been getting crazy weather that changes on a whim lately. I am a 5'5", small-to-medium built woman, and this bag doesn't feel too big on me. It may get a little heavy if you're walking to and from your places, but I think if you're primarily biking around, it really is an amazing messenger bag – very much constructed with love for bike couriers :)

    I really love my recent purchase! This is honestly one of the best investments that I've made as a college student who bikes all throughout the city.

    This is the best bag I've ever owned.

    After 10+ years with my last Chrome bag, I wanted an update. This bag is even more spacious, lightweight and practical than my last, and perfect for riding or commuting.
