The itty bitty Take a Trip Baby Stem Bag looks just like a regular-sized stem bag but is sized fit to things like chapstick, candy, and other ride essentials. Take a closer look here…

If there’s one thing I’ve always struggled with while bikepacking, it’s where I should stash small but essential items like chapstick, lighters, and a gummy worm or two. That’s no longer an issue with the new Take a Trip Baby Stem Bag, which brings all the usefulness of a full-sized stem bag but almost none of the carrying capacity.

The Baby Stem Bag is the first product from Michael at Take a Trip Bags that isn’t made in the US. Here’s the story behind them: “I had this idea last year, but I didn’t have the desire or ability to sew it in-house. Then it occurred to me that a doll clothing manufacturer would be well-equipped to sew tiny bags. After a few months of searching, I found a factory in Taiwan that used to manufacture American Girl Doll clothes. They were happy to take it on, and their results exceeded my expectations.”

The Take a Trip Baby Stem Bag is made from 400d Packcloth with a 200d Gridstop cinchable closure and comes with a Plastic mitten hook as standard but can be upgraded to an aluminum Wetool Clip. They are made in Taiwan and come in pink and black. They cost just $20 and ship in two business days.
