    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.

  • Chrome Barrage Cargo Rolltop Backpack

    The Chrome Barrage Cargo backpack is real gem. I’ve been running this back daily for the last three months and it’s really impressed me. Sure, Chrome has a huge variety of bags for all purposes, but the Barrage is one of the best all-arounders I’ve tried out. This bag isn’t for messin’, no. Instead it excels as a day pack, perfect for toting your daily sundries while leaving you plenty of room for whatever you may pick up along the way.

    On the exterior of this US-made backpack, you’ve got a webbed cargo net that is perfect for holding all sorts of items, including a helmet, a stinky pair of shoes, beer you don’t have room for in your bag, and even a skateboard. Well, especially a skateboard. Like I said, it’d the perfect day bag. Day-to-day I’d find myself carrying my 15″ Macbook pro, a pair of skate shoes, water bottle, tool roll, lock, deodorant, windbreaker and a few other items. Even with all this junk I carry, I’ve still got room for a sixer on the way home. Check out a few narrated detail shots below and if you’re interested in the Barrage Cargo Bag be sure to head over to your local bike shop, Chrome Hub, or Chrome Industries.

  • Chrome District Rolltop Backpack Review

    This right here is the perfect day bag. I’ve been running the Chrome District backpack for a little over a month now and couldn’t be happier; it’s just the right size for your daily essentials.  Plus, being that it’s a rolltop, you’ve always got spare room to squeeze those tall cans in on the way home.

    Since I haven’t had internet at my place for the past two weeks, I’ve been bringing my laptop everywhere and the separate laptop sleeve accommodates my 15” Macbook with ease. I’ll also keep a pair of shoes, rain jacket, water bottle, small tool roll, u-lock, lights and a few miscellaneous goods in the District on the daily.
