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.

    Perfect for day tripping in the city

    This bag is great for days in the city when I don’t want to carry a backpack with me.

    I can fit my wallet, large iphone, sunglasses and kindle easily. I really appreciate the phone pocket, as it allows me to pull my phone out without having to take the bag out.

    I strapped a swift industries sidekick bottle bag to it, which allows me carry a reusable mug.

    Finally, throwing in two stuffable chico bags allows me to carry groceries on the way home.

    I’d definitely buy the Tom Bihn bottle attachment if it was still available, but the swift industries one works great.

    Best day bag for men!

    My wife was getting tired of me almost leaving my wallet and sunglasses case on the table at restaurants while on vacation, so she insisted I get a day bag. So of course I looked here and found the perfect one. It’s comfortable and has a great design. Cheers!

    Top of the line Hip Pack

    The LPD hits all the right notes. From size, comfort while carrying, to versatility. Has it all. I highly recommend it!

    Great for bringing the essentials on a day out!

    It’s smaller than my usual bags making it quite easier to manage during longer outings. The material is very durable and the look is clean. The main compartment has only one separating pocket perfect for my iPad mini. Less organizing pockets means more flexibility in what I can keep with me, a necessity when keeping up with my toddler.

    I opted for the shoulder strap instead of the waist belt. The belt does tuck away smoothly in the back and works great as comfort padding.

    I keep a small first aid kit, charging cables, charging block, a pocket flashlight, wallet, two pens, and a multi tool. Right, and the iPad mini. I still manage to pack the kid’s fruit pouches in here.

    Highly recommend.

    Superior Quality, As Always

    I wanted a hip/derrière bag that was larger than the one I have. I love Tom Bihn products and this one is no exception. My only complaint is that I wish the strap was a bit longer so wearing it over the shoulder would place the bag a little lower when worn in the front.

    Not using it as my everyday bag because I bought it for travel. My everyday bag right now is my small messenger bag from Birds and Beans Coffee.

Sewn in Seattle

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?
