A clever riff on our usual Organizer Pouch; has depth to fit bulkier items.
One day, Kieu (our Bartack Operator — see her work) surprised June and Darcy with two of these small pouches. Its shape is reminiscent of the Kit, a retired design, but the Q-Kit is much smaller. June and Darcy liked their Q-Kits so much that they thought we should make more and let you guys give 'em a try. Clever and awesome (just like Kieu!), the Q-Kit is great for keeping track of very small stuff: coins, keys, phone adapters, as well as charms, hair things, and gewgaws of all kinds.
Just like our Organizer Pouches, the Q-Kit has a small-but-tough plastic snaphook, which allows you to attach it to any of the O-rings inside our travel bags, backpacks, briefcases, shoulder bags, laptop bags, and knitting bags. We know as well as you do that some folks are going to snap it on to their keyring, and we're OK with that. If you have a non-TOM BIHN bag, that's ok — you'll likely find another use for the little plastic snaphook on the pouch, or you can break it off.
The Q-Kit zips with a #3 YKK coil zipper with a plastic slider, which is less likely to damage sensitive electronic gizmos.

I knew the Q-Kit's look & feel would be top-notch like my other Tom Bihn bags, but I've been pleasantly surprised by its utility, too! What I love most is the flat-bottom shape which stands upright on its own and makes it easy to find tiny items inside, even when it's nearly full.
I use my small Q-Kit to carry things like nail clippers, floss, earplugs, bandaids, and wet wipes—stuff I like to have with me anytime I'm carrying a larger bag—and just toss it in whatever backpack or bag I'm using at the time. The fact that it clips into the O-rings on other Tom Bihn bags is convenient, but it's a great size for stuffing into smaller pockets/pouches in other bags, too.
The Q-Kit definitely started me on the road to becoming a "pouches" person :)

I bought this to go inside my Swift Knitting Bag. It’s the perfect size to hold my knitting notions and the flat bottom allows for easy access.

Picked up a bunch of these and filled them with candy for a holiday gift for my coworkers. Great construction and a simple but useful design.

Tom Bihn obviously puts a ton of thought into each of their bags, but what is less obvious, at least at first glance, is the thought that they put into their entire bag ecosystem. All of the organization pouches, straps, and o-rings you can buy give almost limitless possibilities for modifying your pack or bag, especially how you need it. The Q-Kit epitomizes all of this extra thought and effort. I use one in my Snake Charmer to organize all of my little cables and adapters so that I can keep the main compartment clean and organized. It's a perfect size and fits into the Snake Charmer like they were meant for each other.

These Q-Kits are fantastic. The material is high-quality, the colors are great, and TB's signature clip is super handy (I recommend the handle attachment). Burnt Orange Ballistic is my favorite colorway, it's not hideously bright but adds a little extra visibility to the contents. The Size Small is fantastic for power adapters (even bulky ones) + several cords; a few toiletries (though not a Quip toothbrush); an ounce of bagged herb; etc. TB products historically have had decidedly "dad" aesthetic, but these are fairly neutral in that regard and go well with bags I have from other brands like Aer and DSPTCH. I highly recommend the Q-Kit, whether you use Tom Bihn's larger bags or not!
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?
