    I have been serving on a jury for the past month. Today, we started deliberations. Although my normal everyday carry is the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag, I've been using my black Dyneema Daylight Briefcase because I've been carrying more things (like snacks, bottles of water, etc.).

    Here is my photo of my bag in the jury deliberation room.

    Thanks GoStanford. This is the first time I'm on a jury. It's been... interesting.

    The SSB and SE paired together are great touring EDC. It's not great if you're expecting moderate to heavy rain, but in hot climates where you need to carry important but non-essential stuff and have your essentials at hand, this is a great combo because it's very lightweight and the heat stays off your back. I had brought along my S25 with the intention of using it as a daybag, but ditched it after my first day. Wearing office clothing and walking around in the heat with a big and moderately heavy backpack on was extremely uncomfortable. When I got back to the hotel that night, I pared down my EDC further and busted out the SSB. Theft was not an issue because all my $ and other important stuff was in my SE, which was cross-body and always in front of me.

    Here is a pic of my SSB (complete with giant maroon furball of doom) and SE on the tour bus. My RB FJN is peeking out of the SSB.

    ETA: This is what my SSB holds at night-- dinner!

    SE and MOC attached with keystraps, really kickass 陳三鼎 bubble tea, 2 x lean meat gua bao (藍家割包), small serving of smelly tofu from this awesome place.

    Or if (like me) your wardrobe is mostly white, various shades of grey, black, or navy, there will always be bags that will go with any given outfit. I have some favourites, though-- Azure goes with anything dark blue, while I like carrying my Punch and Azalea bags with a black or dark grey top. (Really not a matchy person here)

    One area where the small Cafe Bag does come up short is in its number of zippers. There's just one, which doesn't do much for my obsession to tie cord pulls, but it does let you add a bit of color for complement. There's a little peek of it here.

    I found a scrap piece of orange and it was just long enough to make the pull. I really like orange and tan as a color combo and the cord does it a bit lessen to the jangly sound.

    And somewhere in here is the answer for carrying a water bottle on the outside of the bag. ;)

    jujigatame and I had thought my storrage area of TB/Bag parts and tweeking parts was kind of neat. This is a bit step up, but if you do not mind, I will "steal" the general idea.

    As for the first picture, where your orange zipper pull only just peaks out under the flap, I thought how cool it mirrored the bright color spot of red that the plain is.

    A couple more pickups of mine. One was a trade with rocks (hope yours gets there soon) and the wasabi shop bag was too good of a deal to pass up. I really wish I could take better pics haha

    It does look more red in some lights than others. Seems to be one of those shades that saturates too much on camera a lot of the time. As for organizing parts and whatnot, fishing tackle boxes are always a good place to start. I had to do it out of necessity because I could never find what I wanted when it was all just a big jumble in a shoebox.

    No, most of it is from outdoor or tactical gear retailers. I have a weakness for clips, buckles and the like.

    Definitely digging this color.

    My wife and I were stopping by at a Supermarket for a quick purchase of Fruits, Snacks and Drinks for a usual meetup with our friends. I forgot to bring my Small Shop Bag and we had to carry our purchases with our hands. Then I thought I could slip-in the Watermelon into my Small Cafe Bag. Not those big round shape Watermelon, but more like a small-medium size oval shape watermelon. And, I was kinda surprise to see the Watermelon slipped in well.

    In case you wonder why the Supermarket doesn't provide any Plastic Bag for our purchase. At here, we have "No Plastic Bag Day" every weekend - Friday to Sunday.

    It is a Canary Small Cafe Bag. We were walking towards our car.
    The Canary in the photo could be too bright, as my wife used Flash in capturing the photo and may had been overexposed the brightness. In real life, it isn't so much. For me, it is just the right bright Yellow.

    That looks like a killer combo with the canary outside and dark blue inside.

    I'm with you @jujigatuame. I really appreciate really well made buckles - no idea why. I currently like paraglide buckles - used in parachuting.

    I also have a stash of TB buckles, straps and hooks to try various carry options with my TB bags. Their metal shoulder strap hooks are my favorite as they are so heavy duty. I also love their gatekeeper clip accessories - very useful to link things together!

    Cheers!

    Some of those hardware pieces led me to this for carrying a water bottle on the outside of the Cafe bag,
