I’ve wanted Chrome to make some bags like this for quite a while! It’s awesome seeing them tap into the touring and urban commuting market with their latest line of Chrome Knurled Welded Waterproof Rolltops. Their latest release includes the Excursion Rolltop 37, Urban EX Rolltop 18, the Saddle Bag Rolltop 20 and the Front Rack Duffle 40; all brilliant options. Though, I think I’m most excited about the Front Rack Duffel and the Saddle Bag Rolltop – pictured above.
Chrome created Knurled Welded™ Waterproof Rolltops for bike camping, adventure biking, and all weather commuting – when weight matters and getting wet is not an option. Knurled Welded™ Rolltops are made with our proprietary welding technology that combines RF welding with a mechanical interlock to create the toughest, lightest 100% waterproof bags. Each bag has a watertight rolltop closure for submersible water protection, a Hypalon® Molle loop system for expandability, and five-bar webbing haul straps for hand carrying. Go Farther. Stay Dryer. Guaranteed for Life.
The Knurled Welded line consists of Saddle Bag and Front Rack Duffle Rolltop. Knurled Welded Rolldtop Duffle and Saddle Bag Rolltop work on the bike and off. Both bags leave the hardware on the bike where it should be. The Result is a saddle bag and front rack duffle you can carry around.
