Citizen Rules, Here's Why
Quick Release Iconic Buckle
We’ve gotta start with the iconic buckle - unique to Chrome, it’s a badge of honor that can be spotted from a ways away. Not only is it resourceful, but it’s also quick release and functions as a bottle opener to boot.
Water Resistance with Wet-Dry Separation
Next up - water resistance. The Citizen is built twice with a DWR coated, PU backed nylon plus a floating tarp liner meaning your gear inside is protected even on gnarly commutes. We're committed to keeping you going.
Padded Shoulder Strap with Stabilizer
Rounding out with our built in padded shoulder strap carries the weight high up on your bag and the crossbody stabilizer means your bag won’t flop around while you do. Reflective compression straps securely carry extra cargo and keep you seen while at it. We’ve even designed built-in hook & loop straps to attach accessories like a phone pouch or laptop sleeve.
Great aesthetic, storage, and durable design
Love the design & functionality. Great performance while fitting everything I need.
Strong and dependable. This messenger bag keeps my items dry during the wet weather and holds a large amount of items.
