    Some quick observations:
    Eliminating all padding in the build, but for the absolute strap makes the fully loaded Cafe bag the lightest bag I own!
    The absolute strap is an absolute must as it lets the bag float on my shoulder.
    My only possible want was for a small 8oz flask pouch on one outer side.
    But honestly, it's perfect like it is, besides- Pubs & Cafe's are where the drinks are kept, right?
    When I have time, I'll do a tutorial on how I built a custom Flip Video Kit insert for this lovely bag.

    As if I didn't own enough Tom Bihn luggage already, I just added to my arsenal- the Large Cafe bag (with absolute strap) as my Run n Gun iReport kit.
    It will contain:
    - Custom insert for holding my Flip Mino HD + accessories
    - Samson Zoom H4N recorder plus acessories
    - Small reporter's spiral notepad
    - ID's
    - Pocket umbrella
    - Litepanels Pro light
    Pics to follow. I might even do the shower test on this one.

    Have you used the SIGG fizzy cleaner tablets and the SIGG brush? That's what I use with mine, and it works well. I clean mine everyday with soap/water and then every other day with the fizzy tablets and brush. I have to admit I haven't tried a Klean Kanteen yet.

    yes, the klean kanteen bottles are great. i didn't have one that was sized 1 liter for the picture, however .

    the sigg 1 liter is approximately 10" tall with a 3" diameter and fits very comfortably inside both the large and medium cafe bags.

    does someone have the dimensions for the klean kanteen 1 liter bottle?

    hi MsMoon,

    yes, i've carried 1 liter water bottles in my large cafe bag very comfortably.

    this worked out very nicely when i was in india last march and went on lots of walks on hot, sunny afternoons!

    in fact, let me see if i can take a picture...

    here are two:

    the first is of a 1 liter sigg bottle inside of a large cafe bag. accompanying it are a size 6 soft cell holding an apple macbook, an apple, a black camera case, a notepad, an iphone, and two pens.

    the second has the same 1 liter sigg bottle but inside of a medium cafe bag. accompanying it are a key strap, apple, camera case, notepad, iphone, and two pens.
