Back in the mid 1970’s, I made a firewood carrier for my father and a couple extras for friends. The design was nothing new or revolutionary, but it did its job: schlepping 3-5 firewood logs from the woodshed to the hearth. 

When my father passed away in 2016, I inherited the original carrier I had made all those years before. Now, over 40 years later, I use the thing almost daily in the winter months. It’s stood the test of time thanks in part to its simplicity: it’s a simple wrap with no ends so it can accommodate longer sticks of wood; definitely not a tote bag, there’s no zippers, there's no phone pockets, no overthinking. Yes, you can put your 15" MacBook Pro in the Firewood Carrier, but we guarantee it’ll fall out, plus you might forget and toss it in the wood stove.

Darcy posted a photo of the original firewood carrier on Instagram and a few people asked us if we’d offer it someday — so here it is. Just like the original version it’s made of heavy cotton canvas — a material I’ve been re-learning recently. Cotton canvas isn’t as durable and doesn’t wear as well as the ballistic nylon and other fabrics we use, but it’s got a rustic “cabin” aesthetic and is perfect for a firewood carrier. 

You may be wondering: is this Firewood Carrier useful for carrying anything other than firewood? Answer: no.... unless what you carry in it can hold on for the ride.

Lifetime Guarantee

You can expect your TOM BIHN bag to give you years of hard service. Our bags are guaranteed to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for the life of the bag. That means if something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll fix it at no charge.

Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and are most often evident while your bag is still new. Keep in mind that daypacks and briefcases are often subject to serious wear in everyday use. We often see TOM BIHN bags that are still solid and in use after five, ten, fifteen, even twenty or twenty-five years, with minor repairs needed here or there. But remember: only true love lasts forever.
