Chrome Citizen Messenger Bag

The Citizen is a messenger bag that’s been offered by Chrome since 1995. From the iconic seatbelt buckle chest strap to the thoughtful layout, the Citizen is very much the same bag today as it was over 15 years ago. Like most messenger bags, the Citizen is worn over one shoulder and features a stabilizing strap to keep the bag from sliding around on your back while you’re navigating your way through city traffic. The Chrome Citizen bag is comprised of a large main compartment and plenty of smaller (some zippered) pockets that will perfectly suite all your load-bearing needs. A clip and Velcro closure ensures the contents of your bag remain in the bag and not on the street.

The outer shell of the Citizen is constructed of weatherproof 1000-denier CORDURA® Brand grade nylon that, in and of itself, would do a fine job at protecting the contents of your bag from the elements. By combining this tough CORDURA® outer shell with an independently suspended, waterproof, military grade truck-tarpaulin liner and you can rest assured that the contents of your bag will remain safe and dry.

As with all Chrome bags, the Barrage is Guaranteed for Life.

    Comments about Chrome Citizen Messenger Bag:

    I've been admiring these bags, and this company for almost 2 years now, a freind of mine introduced me to them and showed me his citizen that has lasted for over 6 years with hardly a scratch. I knew then that I had to have one as soon as a I could. I finally got one almost a year later when my girlfriend bought one for me. I have never had a bag that I use more, or that is better suited for biking. I comute to and from school in chico daily, rain or shine. This bag is almost always holding my computer, my textbooks, a jacket, and usually a large water bottle. It hasn't even begun to feel like it has been to max weight capacity. Even when I go home for weekends and I stuff it to the brink with clothes on top of everything else, it still performs just as well. So all of this, combined with a lifetime warranty, equals a bag that very quickly pays for itself.


    Great bag, insanely fast shipping

    Comments about Chrome Citizen Messenger Bag:

    I love my Chrome bag its been fantastic for my Train/Bike comutes to work and back. Its been through pooring rain and everything stayed dry. I would like to get the bigger bag that Chrome has when $ allows. I have no complaints about this bag and am glad that Jenson carries them, just wish that they had the whole line.
