Chrome’s New Niko Camera Bags & “Streets of Chrome” Photo Contest

Bags Contests News

If standard black nylon camera bags aren’t your style, check out Chrome’s new Niko camera bag line. Chrome is mostly known for messenger bags and other bike messenger street gear like knickers, jackets, hats, belts, shoes, etc. But they recently launched a line of camera bags, as well. Even if you’re not a tattooed, skinny jeans-wearing fixie bike rider, Chrome’s Niko camera bags might be just what you’re looking for. In keeping with Chrome’s street ethos, the Niko bags are designed for street photographers, offering quick access, tough weather-proof designs, and customizable padded interiors. And for readers familiar with Chrome’s products – the two messenger-style camera bags sport Chrome’s iconic seatbelt buckle and strap, which has an integrated bottle opener.

There are currently three Chrome Niko camera bags – the Niko Messenger bag ($120), which can accommodate a pro DSLR with grip along with an extra telephoto zoom lens. It also has a top compartment for personal items like keys, wallet, phone and a light jacket. The smaller Niko Camera Sling bag ($80) is designed for compact system cameras like the Olympus OM-D, Fujifilm X-Pro1, or Sony’s NEX cameras, as well as small DSLRs. It can carry a camera and lens as well as an extra lens or flash. Finally, there’s the Niko Camera Pack ($180), Chrome’s largest camera bag. It’s built for a day of shooting or traveling with a pro digital SLR, cables, chargers, an extra lens, tripod and laptop. Because of Chrome’s messenger background, the Niko bags are made to be abused. They’re built from tough weatherproof denier nylon with a customizable military grade truck tarpaulin interior. Obviously, Chrome is pretty confident in the durability of the bags because they give them all a lifetime guarantee.
