For more than 20 years, Chrome has been a leading cult label in urban biking. Renowned for their minimalistic, functional and robust bags designed with attention to detail and seriously stylish aesthetics, Chrome deliver indespensible and durable gear for people who live and ride in the city.
Made for people in need of a perfectly fitting partner they can rely on, Chrome products pack a serious punch, always adapting to the changing and unpredictable nature of the city.
Minimalistic design, streamlined aesthetics and intelligent and functional details make Chrome‘s robust, waterproof Barrage Cargo (£170) rolltop backpack, the ultimate tool for city life. Built to adapt to any environment or load, no matter how bulky or challenging, Chrome’s most rugged backpack to date, this premier all-conditions pack proves itself a true all-rounder for year round use.
With a 22l capacity, a rolltop closure with a convenient click buckle, allows a flexible packing height that can be extended by roughly 15 cm, with a generous main compartment designed to easily house an abundance of cargo. Constructed with a nylon abrasion resistant, tearproof outer shell, the Barrage features a handy additional interior sleeve pocket, thoughtfully designed to fit 15” laptops, so is ideal for commutes to work or studies. Welded seam engineering ensures the free-floating durable tarpaulin interior bag is 100% waterproof, and can easily be used as a wet compartment or to keep personal items bone dry in any weather.
The adjustable external 4-point cargo net system provides generous space for a helmet and more. Strong, 2.5 cm wide straps add to the robust good looks of this solid backpack, whilst easy access side pockets allow convenient storage for U-lock or water bottles. A zippered side compartment and compression straps to attach and stabilise additional loads on the outside, ensures this clever back offers the wearer versatile options to secure various cargo of all shapes and sizes securely.
Equipped with a padded EVA back panel, ventilation channels that ensure sufficient air circulation, and ergonomic, padded shoulder harnesses, the Barrage Cargo wears comfortably in all conditions and even when fully loaded. An additional stabilising chest strap, with Chrome’s patented quick-release buckle featuring the iconic griffon logo, ensures a secure hold. Large reflective straps on the harnesses provide better visibility from dusk till dawn, whilst a reinforced base constructed from waterproof tarpaulin offers additional protection against extreme weather and wet soil. Marrying indestructible construction with innovative functionality, the “Barrage Cargo” is an indispensable companion for all your adventures in and around the urban jungle.
