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.

    Perfect for daily use without being too bulky or cumbersome. I had a huge Chrome bag a long time ago when I was a long-distance daily bike commuter and next to my bike it was one of my most valued possessions, so when I came back to get a smaller version of my old bag I had high expectations. This bag has exceeded my expectations. It's light, it's easy to carry; and I can fit all of my work stuff in it and still have room for a water bottle, lunch and an extra layer. Also, it's PNW downpour proof, which is huge.

    I use this for daily commuting. I am a chronic bag buyer who is never satisfied. However, this is the best bag I have ever owned!! It is so comfortable that my back actually feels better with it on.
