  • 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.

    Face Masks
    Our masks are satisfaction guaranteed. Please 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?

An original Le Grande Derriere waist pack

Le Grand Derriere (LGD) is (you guessed it) a hip pack. Its padded hip belt tucks away so you can carry it sling-style or over-the-shoulder with a strap, if you'd prefer. 

The LGD is generously sized and somewhat boxy: back in the day it was a favorite everyday bag for many of my customers and friends — what folks now call an EDC. The front panel sports two pockets: one zips shut and the other closes with a flap with a buckle (note the asymmetrical flap — an aesthetic nod to our Cafe bags). I designed and made the LGD back in the mid 1990’s — when Birkenstocks, patchouli oil, and fanny packs were de rigueur in Santa Cruz (the location of my original one-man shop.) Seeing some of those various accoutrements back in fashion gave me the deja-vu that inspired the LGD redux. 

The LGD is the next vintage reissue after the Paragon. It'll will be offered as part of our March pre-order.
