Travel bags, laptop bags, and backpacks. Tom Bihn has been designing and making bags since 1972. The best materials and innovative construction.
Buzz - Internal All


    Tom Bihn bags are proudly made in the USA
    This design has been retired: that means we don’t make it anymore. While it was once much appreciated, it has decided to step aside so that there’s room for the new designs that we are continually developing. Stay tuned…


    Some say we've taken the idea of a "sling bag" and perfected it. We like to think the Buzz simply elevates the sling bag to an art form. Practical, graceful, and subtle, the Buzz is as easy on your eyes as it is on your back. While it's not a large bag, the Buzz has room and a place for all your everyday carry gear. If everything you carry doesn't fit inside the Buzz, then maybe you carry too much.

    The main compartment of the Buzz zips open with a #10 YKK® Aquaguard® water-repellent zipper. Inside, the Buzz's built-in padded sleeve protects your laptop. The sleeve is made of a three-layer, 1/4" (6 mm) foam laminate and is designed to fit the 15.4" MacBook Pro. The sleeve also fits many thin 15" PC laptops and thin 13" laptops; consult our Laptop Bag Fit Guide to find out if your laptop fits in the Buzz. As always, if you can't find your laptop in our fit list, email us. We'd be glad to help you figure out if your laptop will fit inside the Buzz.

    Even with a 15.4" MBP already inside, the main compartment of the Buzz also has room for a couple of books or an e-reader, sketchbooks, a magazine, power supplies, and a light lunch or snacks. In front of the main compartment is a #8 YKK® Aquaguard® water-repellent zipper that opens the Buzz's front pocket, which contains an organizer with places for your pens, wallet, business cards, and an included 8" Key Strap for your keys.

    A water bottle pocket on the exterior side holds most common water bottles up to 750ml (when there's a shortage of water) or a small umbrella (when there isn't). The cell phone pocket on the shoulder strap fits most cell phones (including the iPhone), or an iPod or MP3 player, or sunglasses.

    The front of the Buzz features bright, reflective trim for nighttime visibility, though the solid black version has no reflective trim, for those of you who like to stay under the radar.

    The Buzz rides exclusively on the right shoulder, and the wide, padded strap made of 10 mm thick closed-cell foam crosses the front of the body. A side-release buckle frees you from its loving embrace faster than a Vegas divorce. The strap is adjustable, so all good people (between about 5'2" and 6'3") can wear the Buzz. When you need quick access, you needn't take the bag off: unlike a backpack, the Buzz swings around to your front and allows you to rummage through either the pocket or the main compartment. A removable 1" waist strap is included with the Buzz.

    The Buzz's construction and materials are what you've come to expect from TOM BIHN: the best U.S. made fabrics, heavy-duty YKK® Aquaguard® water-repellent zippers, testosterone-tested buckles and components, and completely finished seams, with all manufacturing done in our own Seattle, Washington, factory. Overkill? You bet!
