One Bag, One World Review: the Cadet
“I so hoped this bag would finally be the first poorly designed Tom Bihn bag. The one I could tear apart. The one I would find fault with. The one that would allow me to belittle a Tom Bihn creation.
But that didnâ€™t happen. In fact, just the opposite. The faults I found with some of his other bagsâ€”flaps, lack of zippersâ€”werenâ€™t there.
Then they sent me one for review. I opened the box. I gave the Cadet a once over. I quickly realized that my hoped for creative, harsh, critical review would have to wait. This was a nice bag.
Darn you, Tom Bihn.”
First User Review of the Citizen Canine
“Awesome! The front zippered pocket held my 3-year-old Samsung phone (so smaller than a smart phone, but in a faux leather case with a broken belt clip attachment on the back that sticks out), my driverâ€™s license, health insurance card, $5, and lip balm. The treat section held a ziplock bag with Charlie Bears and two small Zukeâ€™s treat bags. It sat nicely and comfortably on the waist strap on my hips, with the drawstring was partially open so that the treats wouldnâ€™t fall out. Dang if that Dudley didnâ€™t poop and didnâ€™t give me chance to try the poop bag dispenser.
The only thing I couldnâ€™t find room for were some tissues, and I think I just need to rearrange the DL and stuff to the smaller pocket in the back (body side) and put them in the larger pocket up front.
Iâ€™ve tried other bags, even one handmade for me by a nice woman in an obedience class many years ago, and none have worked as well as the Citizen Canine. I am completely gobsmacked by the bag–itâ€™s so well designed and thought out, itâ€™s clear Tom is a dog lover.”

“Bought the Brain Bag for a two month trip to Finland, one I’m currently on. It is my fourth, no fifth, TB bag. (Not counting the shopping bag which is getting a workout here in Finland as well.) And it has performed superlatively. From schlepping multiple laptops for work on the train to navigating the streets of Tallinn as a camera/souvenir tote, it’s been great and comfortable. Needless to say I continue to be very pleased with your products.”
DIY Logo Gift Wrap
This year we are offering a DIY Logo Gift Wrap Kit consisting of a 36″ x 48″ sheet of natural Kraft paper with our logo Farman F-121 Jabiru airplane printed in black. Also included is a small roll of clear tape. You can order the DIY Logo Gift Wrap Kit here, or add it to your order on most product pages. $2.
Why are we offering a DIY Gift Wrap Kit instead of offering to wrap your package for you? First of all, we suggest that you wrap the box in which your TOM BIHN order arrives, after removing the extra items you ordered for yourself and/or adding whatever surprises you want to further personalize your gift box. Second, we’re really good at making bags but wrapping gifts isn’t our strong suit — and we are almost positive that our customers can do a better job than we can. Lastly, if we wrap your package, we then need to consume even more resources to then box the wrapped package. You wrapping your own TOM BIHN box saves about 33% in packaging, which at least Tom thinks is pretty cool.
