The ultra-durable bags look great on the saddle and in the office.
Stylish, functional bike commuter gear can be hard to come by. But, whether it be a pair of bike shoes that feel good while clipped in and while walking the streets, or a versatile backpack that doesn’t clash with your business clothes, Chrome Industries pulls through.
Now, they’ve introduced a new line of super-lightweight commuter bags - aptly named after the Welterweight boxing class. The Welterweight collection brings the same durability of our favorite Chrome bags into a lighter package. And, they’ve got both backpacks and messengers (they know every bike commuter has a passionate opinion about which is the better option).
What can you expect from these new bags? They’re made from a new, super lightweight, weather-resistant nylon material featuring ultra-reflective detailing, custom metal fasteners, smart organizational compartments, and comfortable designs.
The Welterweight Bravo roll top backpack, for example, keeps your back from getting sweaty with an EVA foam back panel, and it keeps your stuff in place with a designated laptop compartment and an external front pocket. The Welterweight Citizen messenger bag features mounting loops for blinking lights and a quick release buckle with a built in bottle cap for your post-ride hops.
Of course, they’ve also made a also a tiny messenger bag called the Welterweight Kadet for smaller hauls, a small messenger bag, the Welterweight Mini Metro, with a designated U-Lock compartment, an ultra stylish, sleek Welterweight Hondo backpack, and a laptop-specific messenger called the Conway.
