    Medium Cafe Bag

    The Medium is the original size of Cafe Bag, one of our most enduring designs.

    The Medium Café Bag is designed to help you carry and organize your everyday gear. Wear it cross-body or over the shoulder.

    The main, open-top compartment and front, zippered pocket of the Medium Café Bag are covered by an asymmetrical flap that closes with our distinctive offset Duraflex® Warrior buckle. The zippered pocket, which has one O-ring, spans the width of the bag. It's ideal for securing your wallet, checkbook, or other small items. It closes with a #8 YKK zipper. The back of the Medium Café Bag has a slanted, open-top pocket. It's great for storing papers, files, a magazine, or a newspaper.

    Inside the main compartment of the Medium Café Bag, you'll find four organizer pockets. Two of the pockets are sized for your cell phone/iPod or a small wallet, and two are sized for pens. The main compartment also has two O-rings, with an 8" Key Strap attached to one. (Additional and extended-length Black and Color Key Straps can be purchased separately.) The Key Strap is useful for keeping track of your keys (many folks leave their keys attached to the Key Strap).

    The Medium Café Bag rides on your shoulder with a 1-1/2" shoulder strap made of high quality nylon webbing. It features a low-profile shoulder pad with a grippy underside.

    The Medium Café Bag can also be carried by a webbing handle that is on the top/back of the bag. Available as an optional accessory is a removable waist strap so you can wear the Medium Café Bag bike-messenger style.

    Think the Medium Café Bag is too big or too small? You're in luck! The Café Bag is also available in sizes Small and Large. And if you're wondering which size is "the one", here's our guide to choosing the right size of Cafe bag.
