I just got my cafe bag and it exceeds my expectations, which were pretty high after all the nice things I've heard about Tom Bihn's bags. What I really like a lot is that the fabric the bag is made of is relatively soft to the touch -- much more so than most ballistic bags. It also seems sturdy.
One question and this is probably a stupid question but I'm going to ask it anyway Holding the bag with the buckle facing me, on the outside of the bag along the right seam is a small loop. What's it for? How do people use it as a practical matter.
The bag is just the right size for trips to Starbucks with a book, cell phone and small digicam and even an iPod.
And it doesn't look like a purse, which was important to me.
I have other bags on order and hope they are as nice as this little bag. This bag really fits with 21st century needs.
