  • 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.

    Bags
    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 emailus@tombihn.com 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?

Our original personal carry-on travel bag. Works great as an destination briefcase.

The Co-Pilot is a small, personal carry-on travel bag designed to fit the essentials — the items you want close at hand and easily accessible during your flight or at the airport. It's a natural complement to our larger Aeronaut, Tri-Star, and Western Flyer carry-on travel bags. (Like the Co-Pilot but need something just a little bigger for more stuff or to hold a 13" laptop? See the Pilot.)

The front of the Co-Pilot features piping to help it keep its shape and smart looks — no matter how full or empty it is. The Co-Pilot features #8 YKK Aquaguard® water-repellent zippers with metal pulls. Included with the bag are five Cord Zipper Pulls, allowing you to add them to the metal zipper pulls or replace the metal zipper pulls entirely. We made a video all about installing/using Cord Zipper Pulls: watch it here.

The Co-Pilot has three front pockets and one main, back compartment. The front left compartment has an small organizational pocket and the compartment is sized to fit a toiletry kit (such as our 3D Clear Organizer Cube, designed to serve as a 3-1-1 bag) or similar-size item. It has one O-ring. There are seven total O-rings in the Co-Pilot. Some customers may find it convenient to clip, via a long Key Strap, a 3D Clear Organizer Cube to the Co-Pilot — at the security checkpoint, you can unzip the front pocket of your Co-Pilot and remove the 3D Clear Organizer Cube but leave it tethered to the Co-Pilot, ensuring that you know exactly where it is.

The middle front pocket of the Co-Pilot is designed to fit a small water bottle or compact folding umbrella. The bottom of this pocket has an eyelet so any condensation, spills, or leaks won't puddle in the bag.

The right side front pocket of the Co-Pilot has four pen pockets and one O-ring (to which is affixed one 8" Black Webbing Key Strap — a handy strap that keeps your keys securely tethered to the Co-Pilot) and is the same size as the left side front pocket — perfect for things like a digital camera, snacks, or even a very light wind shell or down vest.

The main compartment of the Co-Pilot is wide, open, and ready to accept larger items, like more clothes and your iPad, ereader, or book. Inside, two open-top pouches of equal size aid organization.

The back of the Co-Pilot features a wide, open-top pocket for a magazine or newspaper. The bottom of this pocket zips open so you can slide the Co-Pilot over the handle of rolling luggage.

The Co-Pilot has a comfortable handle padded with PORON® foam, centered above the center of gravity. Shoulder Strap attachment points are on the left and right sides of the Co-Pilot. Our Standard Shoulder Strap is included with the Co-Pilot. You have the option of upgrading to our Absolute Shoulder Strap for an extra $20.

Not just a great travel bag, the Co-Pilot will assist you once you reach your destination — it's the perfect day bag to carry your map or guidebook, water bottle, jacket, and umbrella, with room leftover to collect small souvenirs on your trip.

Choosing an Exterior Fabric

You like choices and we like to give you choices! That's why the Co-Pilot is typically available* in two different exterior fabrics. Our Materials Glossary explains each fabric in great detail, but here are some quick facts that may help you decide which to choose. And we're always here if you have questions: emailus@tombihn.com

400d Halcyon
Weave: plain weave with 1/4” / 6mm ripstop
Fibers: 400 denier type 6 filament nylon (base fabric); 420 denier ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene ripstop grid
Coating: light urethane
Made in: Japan

Choose this fabric if:
  • You want a lighter weight alternative to traditional nylon fabrics that has remarkable tear strength and good abrasion resistance.
  • You're looking for a fabric with a modern, "technical" appearance.
  • You have pets: 400d Halcyon doesn't collect pet hair, reducing your monthly lint roller costs.

525d High Tenacity Ballistic Nylon
Weave: 2x2 “ballistic” weave
Fibers: 525 denier type 6,6 (high tenacity) filament nylon, twisted
Coating: heavy urethane
Made in: South Korea with Canadian yarn

Choose this fabric if:
  • You want your bag to be soft and supple yet tough as nails.
  • You want a fabric that's stately enough to be at home at work, the mountains, or a nice hotel.
  • You don't want your bag to collect pet hair or abrade your clothing.

*There may be times when one of the exterior fabrics mentioned here isn't available. Even with our best efforts, the demand for our bags occasionally outpaces our production capabilities: at times, some products, color combinations, or fabrics might be temporarily unavailable or "In Production." See the In Production color combinations as a guide to what our factory crew is making and what will be available next.
