    second, the interior of it is ultraviolet, and it is a gorgeous color combination! although, the ultraviolet looks great with just about anything as well as by itself!
    Haha! You are a gracious father, indeed. With the cafe bag closed and snapped shut does it prevent small items from falling out or is it pretty loose? How well does exterior Dyneema handle rain, is it fairly resistant or does it get wet quickly?

    Hi Jeff A!

    We've never lost anything we've carried in the cafe bags. However, we're monkeys, so we make sure that lego minifigures and other small items end up either in an organizer pouch or in the zippered compartment of the cafe bags.

    Rain hasn't been a problem for the dyneema fabric, but if you expect to be in downpours, I would opt to carry the Co-Pilot or Pilot - they make for a great EDC just like the cafe bags, but they have aquaguard zippers all around.

    Thanks, maverick! Have you ever used the waist strap with the MCB while riding a bike? If so, how secure is it while biking? I would think it wouldn't move around a lot.

    On a related note, before I got into Tom Bihn I purchased a Bed|Stu Trapper John messenger bag. Currently I'm placing my Side Effect, iPad mini, other TB pouches, etc. in this bag when I don't need the bigger Synapse 25. The MCB would effectively replace the Bed|Stu. The Trapper John is more horizontal, while the MCB is more vertical.

    Yes - the waist strap keeps the cafe bag on your back rather than swinging around. The same is true for the ristretto.
