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?

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

THE BIHN Guarantee

Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business since 1972 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!

    I really like this little bag - even when I have it loaded down heavy it doesn't feel heavy on my shoulder, and it has exactly the right amount of organization. I don't like TOO much organization and this is just right.

    My new fav satchel

    My teenager and I needed a satchel for an upcoming trip. I needed something that would be durable, practical and keep masks, wipes, and all the rest readily available. The small cafe bag was PERFECT!!

    Now we take it with us when hiking with our dogs, to kick around town, and the teen uses it as an overnight carry.

    Wonderful

    Excellent quality materials and construction. I've always had small bags, not wanting a big purse. This is the prefect medium-size. Easily fits my tiny wallet, iPhone, and mask. I can also stuff in a hat and/or gloves, 3 pairs of sunglasses, a bar, lip gloss, etc.

    My Go To Bag

    I am loving my new Small Cafe Bag! It is extremely well made and totally practical and functional. Just the right size for what I need to carry around while looking very elegant. I got the umber brown color with a grey interior and it goes with absolutely everything in every season. I was concerned it might be too floppy, but not so. The stitching is impeccable and the bag is plenty sturdy. One of the main reasons I chose this bag is for its small size, it has a nice thick, strong strap. Meets all my requirements and is my new go to bag. Keep up the fabulous work, TB!
