    Wonderful design

    An excellent hip belt for larger backpacks with a heavy load. Padding is in all the right places without adding extra bulk so it can be easily stashed in a backpack pocket without adding unnecessary bulk. Quick and easy to attach and detach.

    Hip belt - could not use

    This was a nice idea, however I was not able to use it. I could not get it hooked onto the bag. So this was very disappointing.

    Very comfortable

    These hip belts are very comfortable. They're easy to attach or detach from the Synik 30.

    A must for the synik

    If you lack your bag to the gils like I do, you need these straps. They tighten more than the included belt , and thus make the bag bounce less and keep your weight distributed to your hips and not just your shoulders.

    side effect waistpack

    This allows me to wear my side effect around my waist or as a sling. Love that all these accessories allow my bags to be multipurpose.

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.
