Sick of the same old "back to school" jumpsuits, jeggings and tie-dye pencil cases? Us too. Chrome's new laptop bags, tech packs like the Buran and Krakow and All City shoe line offer a fresh weatherproof, city-proof alternative to your mom-bought backpack and duct taped slip-ons.
Chrome's "back to school" gear protects you and your goods from the harsh demands of, well...a young adventurous lifestyle. Carry everything you need to get through days full of classes and college parties without looking like you're in hell. Plus, the versatility and lifetime guarantee of Chrome products will get you through more than your fair share of bond fires, keg runs and spontaneous over-nighters (wink, wink).
Anybody who makes a "back to school purchase at Chrome's new Wicker Park store starting August 1st will receive a free gift with purchase.
