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.

Customer Reviews

  • “Amazing!! . .”
    niklas l 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 H 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 M from Sydney, NSW, Australia
  • “Great way to get me to school each day. .”
    Jenine A 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 P 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 L from Aranda, ACT, Australia
  • “Citizen. The best bag i have ever owned, tough and sleek.”
    Marcel D from Joondalup, WA, Australia
  • “Best Messenger Bags. I'm a long time chrome fan and can assure you these bags are the best. I actually bought a mini metro which is almost the same as this model, and it has endured years of use and abuse. These bags are stylish, unique, strong, waterproof, comfortable and can fit more items than you would expect. Another reviewer called these bags 'the clown car' because of the amazing number of things you can stuff into them..”
