Traffic Cone Bag (TM) - "Happy Hour" Security feature
Here's another cool feature of the minimalist TCB design: SECURITY.
MOVIE: Lindsay Lauder talks about the TCB security feature in the Escape New York Movie (at about 1:55 min in)
By unclipping one or both of the snaphooks, you can secure the bag to the leg or arm of your chair, so prevent swipe-and-grabs in bars or restaurants. Or, perhaps it enables you to keep the bag off the ground rather than swimming in spilled tequila and peanut shells (but at least it's washable). The same snaphooks are what enable you to sling it to the handlebars or elsewhere of your bike, stroller, wheelchair ...
Speaking of security, remember you can wear the bag with the black pocket against your back, thus protecting your stuff.
STRAPS TOO SHORT? The bag is designed to be minimal, one size fits most - with no unnecessary clips or adjustments. If you're big across the chest and you find the straps a bit short, you can add an extender like a carabiner or two between the snap hook an the D-ring. One size fits most, but easily modified by readily available fittings - is the key to simplicity.
Comment on your TCB please!
