Chrome made their first messenger bag over 15 years ago. They needed a quick-release buckle for getting a fully loaded bag off quickly. They didn't have money to make our own buckle, so they salvaged a seatbelt buckle from the local auto yard and an icon was born. To maximize durability and weatherproofness, every Citizen is made twice. The inside liner is made with military-grade, 18-oz truck tarpaulin and as an indication of size, can hold 2 6-packs of beer side by side. The outside is made with abrasion-resistant, 1000-denier Cordura.

Check out this expert Chrome Citizen review on our blog.

Customer Reviews

  • “GREAT FOR TRAVELING ON MOTORBIKE. Outstanding quality, great style & very spacious - great for traveling on motorbike.”
    Kristina from Corinda, QLD, Australia
  • “great everyday bag. Haven't used it yet but the bag is well built.”
    Ashley from Bardwell Valley, NSW, Australia
  • “Great bag, strap a little short. This is a great bag and it works well for me, but i had to let the strap out entirely to fit it around my chest, so if you have a large chest be aware that you might have some trouble.”
    Rebecca from Robertson, NSW, Australia
  • “Amazing!! . .”
    niklas from rockdale, NSW, Australia
  • “Awesome bag! Very versatile and well made. . Possibly the best bag i\'ve ever bought! Does pretty much everything and does it well. Very easy to use and carries weight very well. Would have been nice to have a few more accessory pockets but its no big deal.”
    Ralph from Edgewater, WA, Australia
  • “Great Bag. Great Features. Smaller than I thought. The bag is all the things i expected from chrome. The size was a little deceiving and i would have opted for a lager version had i have known. The night series is seriously stealthy and sexy after dark.”
    Jarrod from Sydney, NSW, Australia
  • “Great way to get me to school each day. .”
    Jenine from CAMPBELL, ACT, Australia
  • “for motorcycles too! I had been looking for a waterproof bag for my commute for ages and finally found this! Really comfy both stacked full and half empty, doesn\'t move around at highway speeds. While i have not tested it in really heavy rain, so far so good with no drips being forced in by the wind. Fantastic!”
    Jeremy from MURARRIE, QLD, Australia
  • “Top bag. Have used this bag for a couple of weeks now. Handy, strong, comfy. Good number of pockets, good sized main compartment, takes the wet weather well. And... It doesn't look too shabby either :-).”
    Rod from Aranda, ACT, Australia
  • “Citizen. The best bag i have ever owned, tough and sleek.”
    Marcel from Joondalup, WA, Australia
