Ever wish you had the right bag to carry your board? Say no more. Go from board to bike with a few of our fan favorite Chrome bags that carry your board so you don't have to.

Barrage Cargo Backpack makes a great skate bag

Barrage Cargo - One of our most iconic, durable, and best selling backpacks - also part of our Heritage Collection -  the Chrome Barrage Cargo is made for any occasion - especially strapping your board to the cargo net. This bag is built twice with an abrasion-resistant shell on the outside and welded-waterproof tarp liner on the inside. Fun fact - you can throw a bag of ice and beverages in any of our Barrage bags and turn it into a portable cooler thanks to the welded seams. Inside the liner is a separate sleeve to hold a laptop - we recommend having it in a laptop case - just in case. Watch our video on the Barrage Cargo to see for yourself how rad this bag is.
