Description

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 features heavy-duty plastic snaphooks. Made out of high quality U.S. nylon webbing, the Simple Shoulder Strap is 1-1/2" wide, is fully adjustable, and extends to 46". The Simple Shoulder Strap can be clipped to our Packing Cube Shoulder BagDaylight 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 1" Gatekeeper 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 was included with a prior iteration of the Side Kick and can currently be used with the HLTs.

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 Effect3D Clear Organizer Cube, or 3D Fabric/Mesh Organizer Cube.

    Necessary Add-On

    I can't imagine enjoying my Packing Cube Shoulder Bag as much as I do without the handy 1" shoulder strap to go with it. And it's a bargain at just $7! This little strap has already been a lot of places as it's comfortable and adjustable to almost any length.

    A must have, very comfortable.

    These are a great addition to the bag. Very comfortable and makes it so much easier to carry when your hands are loaded.

    Very comfy

    One of the most comfortable strap I've ever used. Quite heavy but worth it. Anti-slip surface is also very helpful.

    Shoulder Strap

    This is different from the original strap that came with my bag. That one wore out after 12 years of almost daily use so I’m hoping this one has the same longevity. The new strap has less of a cushion but is stretchy and very comfortable.

    Adding these to all of my bags!

    I love the Tom Bihn shoulder strap so much that I have added them to my other bags as well. I love all of my Tom Bihn bags, but still have some staples in my bag hoard that I recently swapped out the basic straps that came with them for TB ones. My heaviest laptop bag now has the comfy cushy strap that makes is so much more comfortable to use while commuting. Walking on the street it bounces a bit, but the comfort and distribution of weight without digging into my shoulder makes it worth a bit of bounce.

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?
