The Original Small Shop Bag is super light, super durable, and super comfortable to carry. Constructed from our ultralight, Japanese-made 200 denier Halcyon ripstop fabric, it's easy to carry around with you just in case you need to do some shopping in the course of your day. At the same time, it's sturdy enough to handle carrying bottles of beer, cartons of milk, canned food, and other heavy stuff. Because Halcyon fabric lacks the stiffness of our heavier-weight fabrics, we've piped the seams with the same stiff plastic material used on hat brims (we cover it with 400 denier pack cloth). This piping gives the Shop Bag enough structure to stand up while you're filling it and keeps the bag looking smart.
The inside of the Original Small Shop Bag has two deep, open-top pockets you can use for items like wine or water bottles. Additionally, you can fold the bag into one of the pockets if you want to save space when storing it or packing it into your larger bag.
In addition to its good looks and organization, you'll notice that the Original Small Shop Bag's PORON®-padded handles make it comfortable to carry, even when it's laden quite heavily. Designed to be an ideal length that will allow most folks to carry the bag in their hand or wear it over their shoulder, these handles successfully prevent that awful hand-slicing or shoulder-tugging experience of lugging traditional non-padded fabric handles. The PORON® will never break down or wear thin, no matter how many trips you make to the store.
The Original Small Shop Bag is easy to clean: its fabric repels dirt and water rolls right off. On the rare occasion you need to wash it, simply pop it it in the kitchen sink with a little bit of mild dish soap. Rinse it out, shake off the excess water, and hang dry.
All of these features have made the Original Small Shop Bag a much-loved design. That's why—after we announced in February 2018 we'd be retiring it—we decided to offer a last production run. Use our new (and experimental) pre-order option to reserve one, whether for yourself or for anyone who wants to carry groceries or other things in comfort.

Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and are most often evident while your bag is still new. Keep in mind that daypacks and briefcases are often subject to serious wear in everyday use. We often see TOM BIHN bags that are still solid and in use after five, ten, fifteen, even twenty or twenty-five years, with minor repairs needed here or there. But remember: only true love lasts forever.
