Description

The Le Petit Derriere (LPD) is, as you probably guessed, the smaller version of our waist/sling/shoulder pack, Le Grand Derriere (LGD). 

After we debuted the LGD, a few folks asked if we’d someday offer a smaller version. That request made sense to us, and so we got to work.

The challenge was to make the LPD as small as possible without losing any features, squeezing all the pockets down to their minimum functional size. 

The resulting size of the LPD is about 80% the length of the LGD on any given edge, and about 60% the total volume. (If you were absent that day in geometry class, you're not alone.) Side-by-side, the LPD and LGD don’t seem all that radically different in size. In profile, the difference is quite a bit more noticeable. 

Time to choose your own adventure. Do the features and style of the LGD / LPD speak to you? If not, perhaps choose the path that takes you back to our collection of shoulder bags and waist packs or travel on to a new universe entirely. 

Feeling spoken to? Your next quest is to determine which is the right size for you. And that comes down to a matter of capacity. Do you need the 6.2” depth / 8 liters of the LGD, or will the 4.7” depth and 4.6 liters of the LPD do the job? One way of thinking about it is: the LGD can fit a light jacket, whereas the LPD doesn’t. 

Other than that, the LPD has all the same features as the LGD. Knock yourself out.

Our bags are designed and sewn right here in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

That allows us to be control freaks in the best way possible; we have direct control and oversight of the quality of our materials, our products, and the jobs and working environment that we help create. It also offers us a unique spontaneity: when we have an idea for a new product or accessory, we can design it, figure out how to build it, add it to our website and be ready to ship it out our front door all within just a few weeks. How cool is that?

The Little Tush that Could

I grabbed the LPD because I felt my LGD was just too much bag for my use. Mainly sling it when going for a long walk / shopping.

At times I feel like I can stuff just as much into it as I did the LGD.

Versatile bag

I am mom of 14 and believe me when I say versatility, quality and function are paramount in my world. I have had this bag for almost a month now. I like the outside pockets for easy access to my phone and then I put all my keys on the O ring in the zippered pocket. I have easy access to those without ever opening the main bag. The bag itself has more structure and form than the Sidekick. I like the large inner compartment and I can fit so much into it. Wearing it as a fanny pack is comfortable and I feel that this will be helpful on those zoo trips with the grand kids so that I am unencumbered by a bag. Overall, great travel and everyday bag.

Practical little bag

I waited and waited for it to come back in stock and so glad I did. I bought a shoulder strap to go with it and find it super versatile that way. It has become my everyday bag crossbody or over the shoulder as well as my waist pack.

I love the flap pocket in front for my cell phone.

It’s a little bulky in the back with the waist pack straps tucked in, but those straps make wearing it as a waist pack so comfortable and secure. I appreciate the included zipper pulls that can be added—I did so for the top zipper.

Would have liked a pocket on the back, but overall, I am really happy with it.
