New! Super Mini Ghost Whale, Nik's Wallet #5, and new bags in 210d ballistic


Packing Cube Backpack + Spiff Kit + Travel Stuff Sack + #5 Minimalist Wallet in 210d ballistic.

We've got a few new-ish items available for order today. Have questions or feedback? Post here in our Forums or emailus@tombihn.com

Super Mini Ghost Whale Organizer Pouch

We die-cut the fabric to make our various organizer pouches using a die press and that means we order a specific size of die for every organizer pouch. When we ordered the die for our Mini Ghost Whale Pouch, our die maker goofed and sent us a die that was smaller than the Mini -- lucky us (and perhaps you as well). This is probably the smallest size of Ghost Whale we can ever make.

Nik's Minimalist Wallet #5

Nik's Minimalist Wallet #5 | TOM BIHN

The top requested variation on Nik's original minimalist wallets was: make a #3 wallet but replace its urethane clear plastic pocket with a fabric pocket. Done. And here it is...

A note on the various hands of our 210d ballistic nylon
"Hand" in fabric refers to the feel of the fabric as you handle the item – most folks would relate to hand as a "soft vs. stiff" thing. Variances in weaving, and ever-progressing changes in treatments and coating due to evolving new, more environmentally friendly processes, can result in different colors or batches of fabric having slightly different hands. We've experienced a somewhat greater than usual variance in our 210 ballistic fabric, so here's a quick guide to the hand of each color of our current batches of 210d ballistic nylon:

Most structured hand: Black
Medium structure: Dawn, Viridian, Cloud, Grass, Island
Least structured/most similar to 200d Halcyon: Coyote

So many colors and options!
There's now even more colors from which to choose: makes color-coded organizational packing even easier.

    Thank you so much
    ballistic looks to me as better looking outdoors fabric (and I want to bring them outdoors)
