    Small-ish Horizontal Messenger Bag

    I would love to see a horizontal messenger bag - something smaller than the Imago. I'm thinking along the lines of a large or medium cafe bag, but horizontal instead of vertical. I love my cafe bags (I have a small and a medium), but as I usually find is the case with vertical bags, there is a lot of wasted space if I am not carrying something tall like a book or a magazine (I don't carry a computer around with me.) If that height went sideways instead, it would give the bag lots more space at the bottom for holding things!

    I did order an Imago once, but had to return it because it was just too large for me to use as a large purse/small tote on a day-to-day basis.

    Any chance that something like this might be in the works?

    Hi Darcy! You never answered this one - it probably got lost in the pack - so I just wanted to refresh it on your screen and hopefully get your thoughts ! Thanks!

    Hi Heidi Jill!

    I've seen several prototypes of bags similar to what you're describing, but I can't say when such a bag will be available....

    Bummer! What do you do with the prototypes? Do you ever have a prototype sale? Hey...that would be a cool summer event to get people into the shop! I would make the trip for that!

    Yes, sized like a medium cafe bag, but horizontal.

    We don't ever sell prototypes: sorry! Tom usually makes them, tears them apart, reconstructs them, tears them apart again, changes something, reconstructs them....

    I will promise keep you updated on any progress on a Small-ish Horizontal Messenger Bag, though. :)
