  • Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business for over 30 years 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.

    Face Masks
    Our masks are satisfaction guaranteed. Please if you're happy with your mask *or* there's something that doesn't work for you. We want to hear from you!

  • Our bags and face masks are designed and cut & 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?

You have the option to attach zero, one or two Hero's Journey Side Pockets on to your Hero's Journey travel backpack – to add more volume and more places for quick-access items like water bottle, snacks and first aid kit.

To comply with carry-on size restrictions, you'll likely want to carry the side pockets inside your Hero's Journey as you fly/train/bus your way to the trailhead. Once arrived at your jumping-off point, you'll transition your Hero's Journey from Travel Mode to Hike Mode and attach the pockets to the sides of the Main Bag. The pockets securely attach on top of the side compression straps with four 1" / 25mm Gatekeepers; the compression straps are still usable when you are using the side pockets, though you'll need to slide a hand under the pockets to tighten or loosen the straps. The pockets are symmetrical: there's no left or right, but rather one pocket you can attach to either side. We sell them separately in case you want just one: some of you may opt to use the compression straps to lash a sleeping pad or tripod on one side and then only really need one side pocket.

Inside each pocket are two O-rings so you can tether your keys, multi-tool, accessory pouches, what-have-you; each pocket has a volume of 150 cubic in / 2.5 liters and can easily accommodate a one liter Nalgene water bottle, or one of our First or Second Aid Pouches.
