TOM BIHN crew back at work at our Seattle Factory

We're back at work

One last (for now) lowland snow snowshoe hike with the Smart Alec. We're here at the Seattle factory shipping orders received over the last two days while we were stuck at home due to the winter storm. There shouldn't be any more delays shipping orders as the snow is supposed to melt today through this weekend. Thanks again for your patience and understanding. We're glad to be back at work. (Special thanks to Katy, Eliam, and Brian for their great work today getting here.) As always, you're welcome to email or call us (1-800-729-9607) with any questions.

Until then, we're answering your emails and phone calls (make sure to leave us a voicemail if we don’t pick up so we can return your call) from home but are unable to ship orders until we’re back at our Seattle headquarters. Everyone who placed an order due to...

Questions? Email us. Staff photos of the...

Riley, Tom Bihn's dog, in the snow

Finally: snow

Riley, Tom's dog. This weekend saw the first snow event in the lowlands of Western Washington. Up high, that means plenty of snow for snowshoeing and other fun stuff. The Synapse is a great daypack for many outings, though when you need to carry a lot of extra winter gear to be prepared, you might want to (because we do) use the Smart Alec or Brain Bag. All three backpacks have hydration tube clips on the front shoulder strap (useful for those of you who use a Camelbak or similar hydration system) which we'll take some in-use photos of soon....
