  • 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?

Our Mask Head Strap is compatible with all of our Face Mask designs — it allows you to transform our face masks into dual-function masks that can secure behind the head or behind the ears. It’s a reusable, comfortable, and high-quality solution that won’t slip off.

Worth noting: we use a soft, comfortable ear loop material for our Face Masks that won't cause ear discomfort like scratchy elastic will. If ear comfort is your primary reason for wanting to wear a mask behind the head instead, we'd recommend giving the ear loops of our Face Masks a try — you may find you don't need the Mask Head Strap!

Our Mask Head Strap is made with soft, comfortable, high-quality synthetic suede. It’s available in one size that fits all. It has snaps on either side — simply open the snaps, tuck the ear loop of your mask between the suede and the snap, and close the snap. Repeat on the other side with the other ear loop. The ear loops should now be secured in the Mask Head Strap. Place the mask on your face and use your hands to place the Mask Head Strap behind your head; make sure that the lanyard of the mask is behind your head instead of around your neck. To care for your Mask Head Strap, machine wash in a mesh laundry bag or hand wash and line dry.

Will our Mask Head Strap work with masks made by other manufacturers? It’s possible. Here’s a photo of a friend of ours who is a nurse who is wearing it with a surgical mask — she was one of the first folks to test the Mask Head Strap and reports: “It’s a game changer because I have to wear eye protection all day and that can interfere with the ear loops of the surgical masks I wear. It’s amazing and everyone I work with wants one! Also, the red marks behind my ears from the painful elastic are going away.”
