Our Seattle store is open tomorrow from 12:00pm – 5:00pm. Our store is on the second floor of the building, and our passenger elevator is out of service for the next ten days. In order to visit the store, you will need to call us at 1-800-729-9607 to tell us you’re here and we can come down the side stairs to escort you up. Please call if you have any questions! We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this causes. See you tomorrow!

“I have had my Tom Bihn backpack since about 1990, and it has been through 4 years of high school, 5 years of college, 6 years of commuting to work, and now almost 4 years as a baby gear bag. Thanks for making such a quality product!” – Cori
“I commented on my ID when I first got it back in February and I just wanted to tell you that I still love it. I’ve put it through some rough times (I pretty much carry my work life in it every day all day) and its held up perfectly! I’ve even slogged it through some snowstorms, rainstorms, and any other type of storm you can think of and its kept everything super dry. I never worry about anything in it. Now, I keep drooling over other bags on the website and I’m hoping to get one as soon as possible! Thanks so much for making a bag that can hold up to the craziness that is my worklife!!” - Jeanie
“Thank you for getting the aeronaut out to me just in time for my trip.
The Aeronaut has exceeded all of my expectations and has since logged
The aeronaut has none of the ergonomic problems my other bags have and
the construction is rock solid (but you knew that!). The shoulder
straps, backpack straps and handles don’t tug at or contort the bag in
unnatural ways. I fit two weeks of vacation and business clothes in
there (disclaimer: I did laundry) with no bulge.” – Bill
“Oh, and the Checkpoint Flyer handles rain like you’d expect from a bag out of Seattle. For reasons that do not here bear examination, I ended up taking a very long walk through empty parts of Haifa for much of one Saturday night, during which time it mostly alternated between drizzle and downpour. Even for someone used to living in Seattle, this was a wet night to walk. And though the Checkpoint flyer was in no way protected from the rain, all it did in that ongoing rain was get very wet — on the outside. The fabric is tight enough that most of the water just rolled off; none of the paper, food, or clothing I had stuffed in there at the time saw a drop of rain, and after an hour or so in my hotel room I couldn’t tell it had ever been wet. So I had zero worries about walking in milder rain over the weeks that followed.”
tombihn.com was down for over 4 hours today due to massive amounts of traffic directed to our site from this review of the Checkpoint Flyer over at Slashdot. (More on the review tomorrow.)
We’re now back up and running. Pages may load slowly here or there, but they will load!
Thanks for your patience and offers of help. We have the best customers in the world.
We’re working on getting it back up ASAP. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please feel free to call us at 1-800-729-9607 – we would be glad to answer any questions you may have. And because you cannot make it through to our site to actually see pictures of our bags, perhaps we can describe them to you over the phone.
