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.
Our masks are satisfaction guaranteed. Please firstname.lastname@example.org if you're happy with your mask *or* there's something that doesn't work for you. We want to hear from you!
Cut and Sewn in Seattle
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?

The logo ball cap is certainly ubiquitous, if not downright rampant. Of course, there’s a reason for that—it can provide protection from both sun and cold, and are (for better or worse) pretty much acceptable attire in almost any milieu these days. Easily packed inside your backpack or luggage, you can take a cloth cap with you everywhere.
When we decided to have our own caps made, we found a manufacturer who can make what’s got to be one of the best cloth caps in the solar system. It’s lightly structured through the front two panels with a thin buckram, so it’s not a totally schlumpy cap, but it's not that stiff “trucker” style either. Far from a schwag giveaway, our cap has the quality and gravitas you’d expect from us.
Ours is a traditional six-panel ball cap style with a moderate brim that's lined with the same fabric from which the cap is made; the button on the top is self-fabric covered as well.
It's available in either organic cotton twill (Slate) or wool melton (Grey) —think summer hat and winter hat. The cotton version requires little explaining, as most cap people have at least one around that’s more or less similar. The melton wool version is more unique, and has the look and feel of an old-school baseball cap. If you live near the equator or anyplace without much of a winter, you might want to forego the wool version. But if you live or travel to somewhere that gets cold or even just damp or windy, you might find you love the wool one. Eventually you might want both.
A simplified variation on our Farman Jabiru airplane logo is embroidered on the left front (right side as you’re looking at it from the front). And around the arch of the back closure we’ve embroidered our tagline, “The Going Is Good.” Both are done in color-matched thread: the embroidery doesn’t scream, but does show up nicely.
This is a one-size-fits-most cap: the back adjustment is a self-fabric strap with an elegant gunmetal buckle.
