Rainy Day Bag

So, it’s storm watch 2014 in LA today. Which means it was a perfect rainy, wet day to try out the water proof-ness of Chrome Excursion Rolltop 37. Color me impressed, the inside of the bag was bone dry after getting poured on during the prommute to work and once inside, the outside of the bag dried instantly. It was also cool to watch water just running off of it at stops (yes is raining that hard in LA, go outside, instant shower). OH, and those straps I bitched about? No issues under load, they work great, good stuff Chrome! I can’t wait to ride home in the rain we are having! Stay tuned for more on this bag.

Chrome Industries | Knurled Welded

I saw Chrome’s Knurled Welded line at Interbike last year and was quite impressed by the details put into each of these bags or was it the display of the little fountain guy peeing out water to show how waterproof these bag are, that made them stick in my head?. I’m also digging that Chrome is stepping into the on bike rack bag game, nice work. In any case this line will be a hot item and don’t sleep. Peep the details on each bag after the jump.
