Ever since I got my first Chrome bag, the Bravo Night, I’ve been very impressed at what I’ve seen from them. Everything from the materials and craftsmanship to the unique designs they present, Chrome makes some of the most interesting looking bags that I’ve seen in recent memory. I’m not alone in thinking this as Japanese skate crew T19 has teamed up with Chrome to produce a limited edition Cardiel ORP, designed by famed skate legend, John Cardiel. This limited edition bag features T19’s signature blue and a custom T19 patch designed by pro skater & graffiti artist Hirotaka Sasao, a.k.a. “Chaka”. The ORP (Operation Readiness Pack)is lightweight and water-resistant. It can be used as a daypack or rolled up and stowed in another bag for travel ease.
The Cardiel ORP by T19 is available in very limited quantities and can be purchased on their website for $110 here. Like most Chrome bags, this one will surely turn some heads.
We partnered with Japanese skate/fixed crew T19 to create a limited edition ORP, our lightweight rolltop daypack designed with skate legend and track bike savant John Cardiel. T19 was one of the initial startup skate companies in Tokyo and has been shaping the skate culture in Japan since 1984. They’ve worked with Stussy, New Era, and Fragment. We’re stoked to work with them.
The T19 ORP features T19’s signature blue and a custom T19 patch designed by pro skater & graffiti artist Hirotaka Sasao, a.k.a. “Chaka”. Originally developed in collaboration with John Cardiel, the Operation Readiness Pack (ORP) is lightweight and water-resistant. It can be used as a daypack or rolled up and stowed in another bag for travel ease. Features include 100% taped seams for increased water resistance, a rolltop closure to accommodate a range of cargo sizes with side compression straps for improved packability, and an internal laptop pocket that fits up to 13″ laptop (Chrome Laptop Sleeve or Tactical Sleeve recommended).
