I've been using City Lights Bags for several years. I have worn them daily to work, slung cross-body while riding my scooter, on my bicycle, hiking, geo-caching while climbing rock, and just out and about. I have yet to wear a bag out (or even make it look worn, despite scraping it on rocks). I have the bag in black (going on a decade now), brown, and just ordered purple (I love purple!). The bag easily holds my tiny wallet (it's really a business card holder that I use as a wallet), keys, handkerchief, lip balm, individually packaged hand wipes, a pen, emergency cards (I'm a teacher- must carry these while at work), and a couple fold-up bus schedules. In the front zip pocket, I keep my iPhone and my bus card. The size means I don't get carried away and try to take more than my shoulder can handle. It also means that it doesn't get in the way during active adventures. I'm 5'10" and the strap is long enough for me to wear this cross-body style. Can't wait to receive my purple bag!!!
