Urban cyclists are spoilt for apparel choice these days, with more and more gear on the scene that is both functional and fashionable. We’ve even managed to make fluorescent colours fashionable, something I’d never thought I’d see in my lifetime. Visibility is important, so is comfort, and the new Warm™ range from Chrome Industries has both in spades.
San Francisco’s Chrome Industries are intent on manufacturing rock-solid gear for the daily rider, from their famous bags and Rolltop Panniers to their Forged Rubber sneakers. The new Warm™ range consists of two versatile items of outerwear: the Work Shirt and the Vest. Just in time for the onslaught of a northern hemisphere winter season.
Both the Work Shirt and the Vest are designed to be worn on the bike and still look good once you’re off and have reached your destination – whether that’s work or to party.
From the press release:
Chrome WARM™ technology offers a unique combination of insulated performance, reversible high-visibility, and classic workwear looks. Chrome WARM pieces are made with lightweight poly-fill insulation (which keeps you warm even when wet), a water-resistant ripstop nylon shell, reflective details, a ventilated yoke, and more. Plus, they pack into a pillow for easy travel and naps.

We built the Chrome WARM™ Vest to be our most versatile urban cycling piece of clothing. It can be worn alone or layered under Chrome Strom™ and Wind™, and over our Chrome Merino™. The Chrome WARM™ Vest has a high visibility rust orange side and a low-key black diamond quilt pattern on the other. Both sides are made with water-resistant ripstop nylon and our lightweight poly fill packs tightly. Bike specific features include longer torso, ventilated yoke and reflective details.
The Chrome WARM™ Workshirt is the most versatile insulated jacket we can make. One side is high visibility rust orange, while the other is black diamond quilted. Both sides are made with water-resistant ripstop nylon. Bike specific details include longer torso and arms, reflective details, and ventilated yoke. The WARM™ Workshirt works on its own, or as an excellent mid-layer under our waterproof Storm™ Field Jacket and Storm™ Cobra.
