    Worth it!

    I just put this on my Synik 22. At first I thought it might be overkill for a small pack. But it really helps distribute the weight better, without adding too much more weight or bulk.

    Unworkable

    I had high hopes for being able to easily convert my Side Kick bag into a fanny pack for a hiking trip. Unfortunately, the clips on this Gatekeeper hip belt are way too difficult to use. I complained to Customer Service and their response was that, if I keep using the clips then over time, the clips become less stiff – or I could return the $12 item for a refund, minus the $10 processing fee (since it was more than 60 days since I placed the order). So much for the satisfaction guarantee! I am not going to keep using the clips because I can't even remove them from my bag without help from someone stronger than I am , or with a tool. So, that was a waste of $12. The conversion belt was a great idea, but poor execution.

    Hi Emily! Sorry to hear that your having trouble with the Gatekeeper Clips! Often times using a two handed method can make removing them easier. What we recommend is use one hand to push the silver loop forward so it clears the black hook at the top of the clip. Once the silver loop is pushed out of the way, it should be easier to press the black hook down with your other hand. Once pushed down, the silver loop can pass over the top of the black hook, which will open the clip.

    Does the job.

    This gatekeeper belt enables me to carry my water bottle sling as a waist pack. I can also wear it with my Small Cafe Bag. I am satisfied with this purchase.

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.
