    Needs to be longer for broad and fat folks

    I got the gatekeeper belt along with a Side Effect and in anticipation of ordering a Bantam. While the straps *do* go over my shoulder, they are not long enough to have the attached bag go past a certain point on my chest. I have a larger chest and am also fat, this means that most slings do not fit me. I want to use my Side Effects and future bags as slings, I can't be the only one who feels this way. Please TB, this belt would be brilliant if the straps were longer

    Hi Amy, Thanks for taking a few minutes to leave this review! I'm sorry this Padded Waist Belt isn't working for you! There are a couple of options to make this work better for you and I'll follow up this message with an email directly to you. We are able to make longer waist straps pretty easily and will happily do that if you need it. Just emailus@tombihn.com to set that up!

    Aeronaut 45 hip belts

    These hip belts are great! I got them for my Aeronaut 45 before a trip to Yosemite and they helped tremendously to make the bag feel right at home on my hips. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants the max comfort when carrying a heavy bag.

    Novel designs deserve recognition.

    I can’t really report on the comfort of this item yet as my wife has yet to use it, but we are both optimistic that it will help limit the amount of back pain she may receive from her Side Kick, though the risk for that is already small considering its size. However, we both appreciate the thoughtfulness that brought about this strap’s creation and its potential for usage. Since we both used proper messenger bags in college, we are both familiar with cross body style carry and appreciate the greater stability from that carry method. The modularity of the bag design to allow for the use of this strap or a regular shoulder strap is quite novel and appreciated.

    Discreet hip belt for side effect

    I love that I have the option to use the side effect as a fanny pack and the hip belt is discreet enough so that I can wear it under my jacket.

    Slippery slope

    I couldn’t get this tight enough when bag was full. Kept slipping looser and sliding down. Maybe a thicker belt would help. LOVE the bag though

Sewn in Seattle

Our bags are designed and sewn right here in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

That allows us to be control freaks in the best way possible; we have direct control and oversight of the quality of our materials, our products, and the jobs and working environment that we help create. It also offers us a unique spontaneity: when we have an idea for a new product or accessory, we can design it, figure out how to build it, add it to our website and be ready to ship it out our front door all within just a few weeks. How cool is that?

Intrigued? You can find out more about the unusual way we do business on our Company Philosophy page.

THE BIHN Guarantee

Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business since 1972 and we stand behind what we make.

If something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll fix it for free. Repairs due to normal wear and tear or due to other things that are not our fault will be performed, when possible, at a reasonable charge right here in our Seattle factory where your bag was made. Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and almost always evident while the product is still new. Keep in mind that bags and packs are often subject to extreme wear in everyday use: do not expect them to last forever. Only true love lasts forever! You can expect a TOM BIHN product to give years and years of hard service.
