Last year US Army Vehicle Commander Jared Morford of Watertown, South Dakota reached out to Chrome to make a Custom Salvage bag with the duffle he carried to Iraq. Chrome’s Custom Salvage Citizen was born.
In honor of Memorial Day, Chrome is launching a Custom Military Salvage Program for U.S. Military veterans & their families. If they bring in their military duffles or fatigues to one of Chrome’s four HUBs (SF, NY, CHI, or PDX), we’ll use the material to create a custom Citizen Messenger bag.
Chrome has four new shoe models hitting the shelves of your local bike shop this summer. The Kursk, The Southside and two colorways of the new women’s sneaker, the Dolores. Check out more information below.
“On a summer day, Chrome Familia member John Cardiel and a couple of friends rode from his home in Sacramento 100 miles north to the Chrome Bag factory in Chico, CA. The intent was to see his new Fortnight travel bag being made. It just so happened that the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company is two blocks away from the Chrome bags factory. Here is what ensued.”
Squid was one of the first “OG messengers” in NYC who reached out to me. Still to this day, I have the utmost respect for the man. He embodies the hardworking NYC hustle but is never to busy to stop and chat for a minute. He’s split off from his old courier crew, now named Street Kings NYC and continues to push advocacy through Cyclehawk, Velo City and is the rep from Chrome in NYC. I caught up with Kevin last week in NYC and shot some photos of his work bike, a custom Squarebuilt track bike.

Chrome put together a behind the scenes look at the Grime‘s recent trip to LA while they filmed for the highly anticipated Shredwell 2. I’ve watched this multiple times now and am blown away at how impressive some of these lines are. Well done guys.
Here’s the third episode from Chrome’s Cardiel Travel Series bags. As someone who’s on the road all the time, I can appreciate each of these bags and their functionality. This film (I can actually say that here) features the Fortnight.
If you grew up skateboarding in the 90′s, this man needs no introduction. Cards is one of the Chrome family members and here’s the first video promoting his new bag line, the Cardiel Travel Series. Check out more at Chrome!
