SEATTLE — It doesn’t matter who you are or if you’re going to work or school, having your items stored and protected until you get to your final destination is important.

For the staff at Chrome, it’s critical.

Chrome makes the ultimate Messenger Bag and is a leader in Urban Riding Gear. They’ve built their Messenger Bags to withstand rain, snow, sleet, hail and have various sizes to accommodate everyone.

The Metropolis is 2000 cu inches, has a 1000 Denier Cordura outer shell, integrated reflective webbing, 18oz weatherproof truck tarp liner and a unbreakable seatbelt buckle closure that secures the bag over your shoulder.

As a journalist, I’m always on the move and need something that can keep up with my lifestyle and handle the abuse that I’m going to put it through and still look good in the process.

The Metropolis holds my laptop, tape recorder, camera, mp3 player, media guide, boarding pass, candy bar, batteries and my autograph Magic Johnson Rookie card with plenty of room to spare. I haven’t had any problems putting it under my seat on the plane or in the overhead compartment.

Chrome Messenger Bags are designed in San Francisco, made in the USA and built to last but most importantly it will safely protect whatever items that you put inside.

Visit and select the size and color that best fits your lifestyle.
