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.

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?

Intrigued? You can find out more about the unusual way we do business on our Company Philosophy page.

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. Keep in mind that bags and packs are often subject to extreme wear in everyday use: do not expect them to last forever. Only true love lasts forever! You can expect a TOM BIHN product to give years and years of hard service.

Perfect Size!

Such a beautifully designed fanny pack with great pockets. The belt makes it very comfortable to wear with nice support. It’s a wonderful bird watching pack.

Love the size

Being a petite person, the original Le Grand Derrière was too big for me as a hip pack. This bag on the other hand is perfect for me size-wise. Functionality-wise, it’s great. The inner pocket is spacious enough for my needs (Wallet, packable rain jacket, masks, with plenty of room for more). The front pockets give me different options to stuff I like to have readily available (meds, snacks, keys, phone). I use this bag as both a sling and hip pack. Thanks!

Nice “little” bag

This thing is great to hold a few things when I’m out and about. I use it with the straps as a sling or just the handle to keep everything together. Really enjoy that it fits my iPad mini and a few accessories.
