    Darcy I like the stickers, mainly because I get a kick out of seeing which color I got this time. I wouldn't mind getting something else instead (maybe a bookmark from an eco-friendly material?) but...

    I suspect with taller bags you can get away with shorter straps because you have the extra height of the bag itself working in your favor. (IOW, less distance for them to cover in order to connect to...

    Anyone else down for a slim but non-minimalist wallet? Meaning something that's not bulky, but holds/organizes a lot (including coins)?

    Have you tried a small shop bag? 16.5 liters, light weight, and similar internal organization as the truck totes. I've got both sizes and they're great :).

    shoplarry, Mind if I ask how this turned out? I just got a BB and agree that it definitely needs a frame sheet (at least for me, at 5'2).
