Grab Bag

Boreal 1000 Texturized Nylon

DESCRIPTION

Note: when limited quantity colors sell out, they're gone for good. Read the description below for more on that!

Think of The Grab Bag as “Snake Charmer meets 3D Cube”. It can be used as an organizer inside of a larger bag and/or you can clip a shoulder strap to its d-rings and use it as a mini shoulder bag. We're certain you'll find plenty of other uses for it as well; we can confirm it’ll fit a large burrito. And, of course, it has grab handles. 
 
That might all be enough fun, but we decided to up our game a bit.  Around the factory we have small rolls of rare, retired, or never-before-released colors and fabrics (sample rolls from our suppliers, mostly) sitting on a couple of shelves. These are handsome (and often pricey) fabrics — it seemed a shame to let them languish and never become bags. How about we die-cut the side panels of this new pouch from these rare fabrics? More labor intensive than our usual cutting process, but better than letting these HTF (hard to find) fabrics go to waste!

We high-graded the shelves, putting aside anything we didn’t think would be worthy of your attention, and looked at what we had left. Some of the rolls of fabrics are very small — perhaps only yielding as few as 4-6 Grab Bags total — and others are large enough that we’d be able to keep the Grab Bag stocked for a while at least. Our plan is to release a new set of Grab Bag fabrics/colors each month, until the shelves are bare. It’s going to be a real team effort: the production floor will decide which color of center piece (the part with the zipper) is paired with which die-cut, rare fabric, side panels, and the customer service crew will take and upload photos of all these crazy color combination Grab Bags.

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?

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.

    Deceptively practical

    Beautiful bag! I love my plum and olive color combo. This bag is holds way more than I was expecting it to. I added a shoulder strap and will be using it as my personal item on the plane for an upcoming trip and then will use it as a crossbody purse during the days out exploring.

    GREAT “Multi-Purpose” SIZE

    I own dozens of Tom Bihn products and this

    “Grab Bag” is another great addition to the collection. I put all my (extra’s) the small stuff…

    (I.E; charger block, cords, chapstick, AirPods etc.) it’s the perfect size, not to big and not to small, just the right size to drop into any bag, it’s simplicity is what makes this “Grab Bag” perfect!!!

    Mahalo to Tom Bihn and your entire TEAM

    for designing, organizing and simplifying our lives!!!

    Just what I needed

    The Grab Bag is the perfect size for my mobile phone accessories -- holds my wall charger & cord, power bank, USB drive, flexible phone stand, and over-the-ear comfort headphones. (some people are minimalists ;-) -- obviously I am not) When in my Maker's Bag, it gets tethered in by one of the shoulder strap rings. Handles on the top & ends so that whether it rides in a bag vertically or horizontally it's just as easy to pull out. Just enough structure to provide a bit of protection for the headphones. So much better than when the phone accessories were in bag pockets. Top handles can go over a doorknob, hook, etc. to keep things handy. The deep color looks sharp and blends in with my main bag colors. Love this purchase!

    Awesome little bags

    I bought two of these (boreal and parapack) not really knowing what I’d do with them, but I found that the size and shape is perfect for holding all the smaller tools I would usually keep in the “everything” drawer. I have a normal sized tool bag filled with hammers and wrenches and such, but that is usually overkill for little tasks around the house. The handles make all the difference! Really a great design.

    For a recent move, I used a parapack grab bag for holding a bunch of ropes for tying furniture down in the truck and afterwards filled it with snacks for the drive. The boreal stuff feels stiffer and better suited for tools, while the parapack feels more like a general purpose material that can be used for random stuff like food or clothes.

    Excellent All Around Organizer

    I am starting a collection of grab bags because I find them so darn useful! They are an excellent all-around organizer!

    I carry one in my every day bag that is filled with restaurant necessities for my toddler: fruit squeezes, fruit snacks, bibs, spoons, bendy straws (toddler parent pro-tip, carry these!), crayons… it’s amazing how much you can fit in these!

    I use one for my travel tech pouch.

    I use one for my toiletry bag.

    And I have others to assign uses to; they are so flexible it’s amazing!
