I'm not sure if this should count as a review or a product suggestion. I just opened the box to inspect my eagerly-anticipated Medium Café Bag, and was alarmed more by what I heard than saw. The bag is noisy.
There's a zipper that runs across the front of the bag under the hanging flap. The zipper is made of a metal in dark gray finish. That's a nice touch, but the zipper pull makes a tinkling sound when it bounces against the ring that holds it to the slider. It sounds like a little bell ringing, more rickety than pleasant.
I have 3-year-old ID bag that doesn't have this problem, or at least I've never noticed any sound coming from its various zippers. Is this a known issue?
As for the product suggestion angle, there have been discussions here about avoiding velcro to enable discreet bag operation in, say, a meeting. The noisy zipper pull violates that principle, so I suggest investigating whether some other finish on the zipper hardware will make it less noisy, at least during normal movement of the bag.
