Request for slight Cafe Bag redesign
The release just a few days ago of five new bags/accessories was quite a feat! I am looking forward to receiving my spankin' new Aeronaut 30.
At the risk of diminishing the 'new bags' glow of accomplishment, I want to lobby (again; this has been previously mentioned) for a couple of modifications to the Cafe Bag. I have been looking at the cafe bags for a long time but have hesitated to make a purchase. I can see myself buying multiple MCB and LCBs if only they had two additional features: a pocket with diagonal zipper (I love the diagonal zipper style on other bags) on the front of the main flap and a zippered main compartment. I currently have a non-TB cross-body bag with the front flap pocket feature (it's slightly gusseted for expansion) and I use it constantly to hold my sunglasses, metro pass, a pen, and chapstick. The front pocket flap is such a useful feature that I would love to see it on the Cafe Bags (my old bag needs to be retired, hence my wish for this on the CBs asap!). The zippered main feature would be great, as well, for security on the metro and when traveling, and to keep stuff from falling out (I'm not the most careful with my bags!). The top flap zipper is my top priority but the presence of both features would really make this this best EDC/travel/every day for every body-bag!!
Curious to know if others also support the addition of these features!
