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 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.

Great with the side effect

Works well with my side effect. Just wish the straps were easier to manage as they do hang when it’s tight

Well-made, but too easy to adjust

The additional utility it gives to my Side Effect is well appreciated. The materials and construction are excellent; I don't see them wearing out for a very long time.

However, it is too easy to adjust. If I try to adjust the position of my bag or even bump my hand into the strap, the strap has a chance of loosening up, creating the minor inconvenience of having to tighten the strap again.

Difficult to attach and remove

I have such a difficult time attaching and then removing this from my side kick. I always have to have someone do it for me.

works well as a sling strap

I'm using this as a sling strap across one shoulder and around my chest for a Side Effect on my back, working pretty well for running. Needed a stabilizer strap as well, and I happened to be at REI when I was researching what to get, and found this there: https://www.rei.com/product/162155 - REI Co-op Packmod Accessory Straps - Package of 2. This worked out well - can get by with just one of those.

Should mention the fit is perfect for my bulky 42" chest. Might be too tight for larger folks, but I'm sure some kind of matching extension would work.
