    SCB on a Fall Day's walk to a latte

    Here's what fit in my SCB today as I headed out on a walk toward a latte and some reading/writing/picture taking... Two small organizer pouches, one pen/pencil organizer, organizer wallet, two 5.25x5.25 Rhodia LeCarre notebooks, one 304 page hardcover book from the library, a large Rhodia Webbie, small padded organizer with Canon Powershot, tub of Carmex, and two leftover Halloween bite-sized treats!

    I love my TB bags! Each one has its day and place...S, M, L, cafe bags and Imago...and a colorful assortment of organizer pouches! Also just got the strap-wrap and a large Dyneema--Awesome!

    Nice pic!

    What is the orange thing resting on the flap of the SCB?

      Oops! Forgot that! It's technically a Timbuk2 id holder but I use it to hold the keycard that gets me into my place of work!

        Wow! - awesome phito. Thanks. I had ordered & returned a SCB linen/steel. When it arrived, I put my wallet & 2 witz eyeglass cases in the main compartment and my phone inside in the zippered pocket. The bag seemed fat with that load. I have to carry the 2 eyeglass cases all the time - I wear prescription glasses & sunglasses.

        Each time I see a post of the SCB & the amount of stuff other folks put in it, I wonder if I just did not give the SCB a chance.

        I would love a Tom Bihn ID holder that will hold & fold out to display 4 IDs - driver's id, gym card, work id, key card.

          LiLin,

          Just to say, there was no wiggle room with those items in the SCB. They were not jammed in--I care too much about both books and the paper on which I write! But, there was no extra room. Sometimes I choose the larger bag simply so it doesn't feel quite so packed....which is to say, using a larger bag does not necessarily mean I carry more stuff...sometimes it just means there's room to spare...things are a bit looser, freer, without getting completely lost in the abyss--such is the marvel of the Cafe bags in particular, I find.

            That sounds like an absolutely wonderful activity. Thanks so much for sharing!

              Ooo I'd love to see what the linen color looks like!

              I've always been curious about the linen, because to me, it just SCREAMS "Hand-color me!!!!"

                @Lani, you can see Geocycle's linen Ristretto if you scroll to the bottom of this post.

                I also believe that FrankII has a pic of his linen café bag on the TB collection thread.

                  Lovely pics, KmK. Wish I could have a SCB, MCB, and LCB in every color! They seem so versatile and, as your pic demonstrates, can hold a surprising amount of stuff! And with a latte besides...heaven! Enjoy!

                    Thanks, KmK. I, too, do not like cramming my bags. I enjoy Maverick's videos of what can be packed inside a TB bag. I also find myself mentally making combination lists of the items I would load in the bag, definitely not all the items that Maverick use to demo loading possibilities.

                    I may yet buy a SCB in linen/olive. I did not much like the steel interior of the SCB linen/steel I bought & returned. It made returning easier.
