Last night, CBS 5 (KPIX TV Channel 5 in San Francisco) broadcast a short news segment on Chrome Bags and their Made in the USA messenger bags.

Cool. I like Chrome, so it is good to see them getting some exposure on the news
Timbuktu is also out of SF.http://www.timbuk2.com/wordpress_cms/customer-s…I remember when they brought their production facility to Interbike – you could go up to the booth, pick your size (this is when they had just S/M/L) and colors, and they would sew it for you right there.
Actually, I think Chrome is pretty explicit about their products NOT being made in the US. Their factory is in Guangzhou, China, and this is mentioned in the specs of every product I’ve looked at on their site.
I am looking at my Chrome Metropolis bag right now, and it has a “Made in USA” tag sewn inside.
Chrome’s shoes are made in China; the bags are made in the USA. The higher end apparel (pants, hoodies) are made in USA, t-shirts are from overseas.
Chrome did custom orders this year @ Interbike. They also had a tattoo artist at their booth giving real tattoos.
