San Francisco based utility bag manufacturer Chrome and Krooked Skateboards partnered to come out with a limited edition of Chrome’s “Citizen” bag. The Citizen bag will feature graphic designs by Krooked’s founder Mark Gonzales. The Citizen bags with Gonzales’ artwork will hit stores on July 1st.
Chrome’s marketing director Matt Sharkey shares how this collaboration came to be: “Mark’s instantly recognizable artistic style has graced everything from skateboard decks to works of art in boutiques and museums all over the world. We are truly honored to have the rare opportunity to work with such a legend and have his artwork on this line.”
Chrome chose “Citizen” because it appeals mostly to cycling enthusiasts, both professional and recreational riders. Their collaboration bag has a 1,050 denier nylon outer shell with a weatherproof truck tarp liner. It also features a metal seatbelt latch that can be used as a bottle opener, a cross-chest load stabilizer, and a velcro accessory mounting strap.
Retail price for Chrome’s Citizen Messenger Bag will be $140.00.
