Description

Customize your zipper pulls with color or your own custom knot pulls.

Most of our bags come with a packet (or two) of Cord Zipper Pulls (the Aeronaut 30Tri-StarBrain Bag, and Synapse 25 among many others). There are three advantages a cord pull can offer over a metal pull: the cord pull can extend the range of a metal zipper, it can wrap around the zipper and mitigate the jingle of the metal pull (you won't get as much of that "I'm being followed by a golden retriever" sound with cord pulls) and it can make the zipper easier to grab and use. This can be a significant difference with a bag like the Aeronaut, which has numerous zippers.

We also offer the option of buying extra Cord Zipper Pulls in various colors to use with—or instead of—the standard included Black or Coyote pulls.

There are three choices when it comes to the zipper pulls: The first option is a set of 8 pre-cut 5¾-inch cords with a 1-inch plastic pull tab assembly. The second option is a set of pre-cut 8-inch long cords only (great if you prefer a knot to a plastic pull). The last option is a 5-yard length of cord you can cut to any length you choose.

On clipping the metal zipper pull tabs:

Clipping the metal zipper pull tabs from the sliders and replacing them with cord pulls is even quieter than simply wrapping the cord around the metal pull tabs. It's important to make sure you've decided you never want metal zipper pulls again before you cut them off. First of all, you can't put them back on. Second, if the metal zipper pulls are cut off, that part of the bag is no longer covered under our Lifetime Guarantee, which means that you won't be able to have the zipper replaced because you want the metal pulls back (the rest of the bag is still covered by our guarantee). Third, if the metal pulls have been removed from a bag, we cannot accept the bag back for exchange or refund. Another disadvantage of removing the metal pulls altogether arises if you want to use a luggage lock: unless the sliders have locking rings through which you can thread your lock, you'll need to lock the cords together, which isn't as secure as locking metal pulls. Finally, while cutting through the metal pulls to remove them isn't as dangerous as some of the things we do every day, please make sure to be careful and know that you are proceeding at your own risk.

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.

    Great look

    I picked these up when ordering my Techonaut 30 not realizing that the bag came with black pulls already. No biggie, I love the look! My techonaut is all black so the yellow/greenish color gives it a nice pop. Very easy to put on after watching the helpful video from the Tom Bihn website. Would buy again for future bags.

    Love the zipper pulls!

    I love these zipper pulls because I’m allergic to nickel & I can use these instead of using the zipper tab. Makes it very easy to find the zipper pull too. Very easy to install & I love that there are different ways to attach them.

    Zipper Pulls = Thumbs-Up

    For those of us who don't know how to do the paracord zipper pulls all fancy yet, these are for you. Colors are more limited (come on TB get some ORANGE!!) than if you crafted your own and bought from paracord specialty retailers. But these are offered in good colors for most bags, come with the little TB end clips (hard for me to close sometimes but I manage with the help of a table to push against as I have weak hands), and don't require too much extra effort.

    One day I will learn how to make fancy zipper pulls and grab handle padding out of paracord, but for now I will stick to these from TB.
