One day, Kieu (our Bartack Operator — see her work) surprised June and Darcy with two of these small pouches. Its shape is reminiscent of the Kit, a retired design, but the Q-Kit is much smaller. June and Darcy liked their Q-Kits so much that they thought we should make more and let you guys give 'em a try. Clever and awesome (just like Kieu!), the Q-Kit is great for keeping track of very small stuff: coins, keys, phone adapters, as well as charms, hair things, and gewgaws of all kinds.
Just like our Organizer Pouches, the Q-Kit has a small-but-tough plastic snaphook, which allows you to attach it to any of the O-rings inside our travel bags, backpacks, briefcases,shoulder bags, laptop bags, and knitting bags. We know as well as you do that some folks are going to snap it on to their keyring, and we're OK with that. If you have a non-TOM BIHN bag, that's ok — you'll likely find another use for the little plastic snaphook on the pouch, or you can break it off.
The Q-Kit zips with a #3 YKK coil zipper with a plastic slider, which is less likely to damage sensitive electronic gizmos.
The Q-Kit made of our 1050d HT ballistic nylon. Colors are "as available," which means we choose the colors for you. That's because Q-Kits are made out of pieces of fabric left over from cutting our larger bags (what would otherwise be discarded as scrap), so available colors vary. Think of it as an awesome surprise. Or, you can indicate your first, second, and third choice color preferences in the comments field on the Q-Kit page and we'll do our best to get one of those colors to you. If you don't indicate a preference, we will do our best to choose colors that would complement the other bags you're getting. And, hey, if you'd prefer we remove the Q-Kit from your order rather than send you a color you didn't ask for, you can tell us that too.
