The Guide’s Pack Padded Hip Belt is a simple padded hip belt that attaches to The Guide’s Pack. It allows you to transfer a surprising amount of the Guide’s Pack weight to your hips while hiking, and is great if you’re going to use the Guide’s Pack for heavier loads (think winter or climbing gear) or if you plan to use it as an overnight pack.
There's two versions of the Guide's Pack Padded Hip Belt available:
Guides Pack Padded Waist Strap, (for Guide’s Packs purchased before 09/2019)
Choose this version of the belt if you ordered your Guide's Pack before September 2019. This version of the Padded Hip Belt attached to The Guide's Pack via four 1" Gatekeeper clips.
Guides Pack Padded Waist Strap (for Guide’s Packs purchased after 09/2019)
Choose this version of the belt if you ordered your Guide's Pack after September 2019. This version of the Padded Hip Belt secures to The Guide's Pack via two 1-1/2" Gatekeeper clips.
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?

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.
