Chrome has taken its extensive experience designing bags to withstand the rigors of the urban environment and released a line of laptop bags that can hold their own on the mean streets of cities around the world.
The design by president Mark Falvai links together traditional features while providing innovative manufacturing techniques. Offering ballistic nylon or high tenacity Kevlar to create a completely different approach to laptop bags.
According to Falvai, “Chrome has remained an industry leader by offering customers an option to step outside the traditional stale laptop brief and into a unique personal style, without sacrificing durability and comfort.”
The laptop bags are constructed with carbon fiber and Kevlar reinforced composite materials as well as ballistics nylon, keeping your laptop safe and dry in any condition. The composite material was selected as a design element in the laptop bags for its high strength to weight ratio and innovative visual presence. Custom laser cut stainless steel hardware also adds to the unique character of the bags.
Features include internal divider pockets, pen slots, padded laptop compartment, front cargo pockets, carry handle and removable shoulder strap. Available in two sizes.
