    Looking for a field visit bag...

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a bag to be used for field visits ranging from urban to river environments. Just need something to hold a small camera, binox, field recorder, moleskine, snack and water. Seems to me that the medium cafe bag fits the bill. Can the shoulder strap be easily worn across the chest (strap from left shoulder to bag at right hip)? I'm 6'3" and 220lb.

    Any other suggestions are welcome.


    I own 2 Large and one Small Cafe bags, this is the way I wear them.

    I suggest that you add the waist strap to keep the bag even more securely in place if you bike or do a lot of bus hopping or need to bend down often to check something .

    The waist strap keep the bag nicely in the center of your back, a must under the circumstances described above.
