Cross-body or over the shoulder, this small messenger bag carries your everyday essentials.
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 sizes Medium and Large.
