Description

The Small Café Bag is designed to help you carry and organize your everyday gear. Wear it cross-body or over the shoulder.

The main, open-top compartment and front, zippered pocket of the Small Café Bag are covered by a distinctive asymmetrical flap that closes with an offset Duraflex® Warrior buckle. The zippered pocket, which has one O-ring, spans the width of the bag. It's ideal for securing your wallet, checkbook, or other small items. It closes with a #8 YKK zipper. The back of the Small Café Bag has a slanted, open-top pocket. It's ideal — easy storage, quick access — for anything that's relatively flat.

Inside the main compartment of the Small Café Bag, you'll find four organizer pockets. One of the pockets is sized for your iPhone or a small wallet and three are sized for pens. There's room for a couple of hardbacks in this main compartment.

The main compartment has two O-rings, with an 8" Key Strap attached to one. (Additional and extended-length Black or Color Key Straps can be purchased separately.) The Key Strap is useful for keeping track of your keys (many folks leave their keys attached to the Key Strap) and can also be used to clip a pocket watch or Swiss Army knife to the bag.

The Small Café Bag rides on your shoulder with a 1-1/2" shoulder strap made of high quality U.S. webbing produced specifically for us. It features a low-profile shoulder pad with a grippy underside. On the top back of the bag is a webbing grab handle. Small, unobtrusive webbing loops on the right and left of the bag allow you to add an optional removable waist strap to the Small Café Bag, to stabilize the bag against your body while you're riding a bike.

Think the Small Café Bag is too small for you? You're in luck! The Café Bag is also available in size Medium. And if you're wondering which size is "the one", here's our guide to choosing the right size of Cafe bag.

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?

Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business for over 30 years and we stand behind what we make.

If something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll fix it for free. Repairs due to normal wear and tear or due to other things that are not our fault will be performed, when possible, at a reasonable charge right here in our Seattle factory where your bag was made. Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and almost always evident while the product is still new.

Perfect size for EDC!

I can fit so many things into this small, little bag! I carry daily with me the following: iPad Pro 11”, iPad mini, Anker power bank in Ghost Whale pouch, case for eye glasses, mini emergency kit in Ghost Whale pouch, DJI action 2 and Beats Fit Pro in Ghost Whale pouch, random cables in Ghost Whale pouch, keys, wallet, and random protein bars for on the go eats. I’m amazed at how well everything just fits!

Great small messenger-style bag that carries a ton of stuff

I have been using the small cafe bag as a purse for a few weeks now, and it's pretty great. I'm thrilled with the quality and it's really comfortable. I have a couple of ghost pouches attached inside that remove the need for any additional pockets. My only complaint about this bag is that it is actually larger than I want. I would love, love, love it to be a couple of inches *shorter* (but the same in every other way). I can fit WAY more in here than I need to. For fun, I have put in my 16 oz stainless steel thermos (in addition to what I normally carry in there) and that's kind of handy, but not one of the use cases I got this for :). Overall, I absolutely love the quality and materials and design -- I just wish it was available in a shorter style (not smaller in the other dimensions, it's the perfect width). Still, 5 stars for being such a great, great bag.

Perfect small bag

I’ve used a medium café bag for years, but decided to try the small one for when I don’t need as much stuff. Great organization—pen slots, pocket that fits my large iPhone, zippered pocket in front and open pocket on the outside. I can carry my wallet, Kindle, notepad, and random small items. Love the color (aubergine). It’s light and unobtrusive but carries everything I need.
