  • 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?

We offer several comfortable shoulder straps to choose from.

The Absolute Shoulder Strap has a unique, patented, internal control-stretch system that's a lifesaver when carrying a heavy bag. It's the ideal strap for those who carry hefty loads or simply want the most comfortable strap available. The Absolute Shoulder Strap combines a nonslip, ergonomically curved pad — made of soft, durable neoprene — with comfortable stretch backing to make bags feel 50% lighter and 100% more comfortable. It's adjustable from 20" to 52".

Of course, at TOM BIHN, we're somewhat perfectionists: we make sure the webbing of our Absolute Shoulder Strap is our own top quality nylon webbing, which lasts and looks better longer than the standard polypropylene. And we go the extra mile and add heavy-duty, all-metal snaphooks. Made in U.S.A. to our specifications, our snaphooks are double-plated with a matte black finish to keep them sharp looking for years. The Absolute Shoulder Strap with Snaphooks is designed to work with any bags (ours that have D-rings or equivalent hardware.

Bags that accept the Absolute Shoulder Strap include the Aeronaut 45, Aeronaut 30, Tri-Star, Western Flyer, Empire Builder, Cadet, Maker's Bag and Yeoman Duffel.  

The Standard Shoulder Strap has a .25" / 6mm texturized rubber pad making it a good choice for those looking for some comfort but not needing the over-the-top comfort of the Absolute Strap. High quality U.S. nylon webbing and heavy-duty plastic snaphooks.

The Simple Shoulder Strap is, as the name suggests, a less heavy-duty strap for those who carry lighter loads. It has a flexible pad with a grippy underside to help it stay on your shoulder and is fully adjustable in length. It features heavy-duty plastic snaphooks. Made out of high quality U.S. nylon webbing, the Simple Shoulder Strap is 1-1/2" wide and extends to 46". The Simple Shoulder Strap can be clipped to our Packing Cube Shoulder Bag, Daylight Briefcase, or most light-in-weight bags with appropriate D-rings or equivalent hardware.

The 1" Shoulder Strap is a simple and light-duty shoulder strap made of 1" nylon webbing. It is adjustable and has plastic snaphooks at each end. It does not have a pad. It is most often used with our Packing Cube Shoulder Bag.

The Side Kick Shoulder Strap is a simple and light-duty shoulder strap made of 1" nylon webbing. It is adjustable and does not have a pad. It attaches via Gatekeeper clips at each end. This strap is included with the Side Kick, but we figured we'd offer it separately just in case someone loses theirs. 

The 5/8" Shoulder Strap is a simple and light-duty shoulder strap made of 5/8" nylon webbing. It is adjustable with plastic snaphooks at each end (no pad). This strap is most often used with our Side Effect, 3D Clear Organizer Cube, or 3D Fabric/Mesh Organizer Cube.
