The Guide's Pack Lead's Pocket is the same size as the Left and Right pockets, but it features extra, internal organization needed by the leader of any group: heavy webbing to clip multitools, flashlights, and knives; two zippered mesh pockets ideal for a space blanket or first aide supplies; three O-rings to tether car keys or pouches for even further organization; elastic loops for pens/pencils; and behind it all, a long, flat zipper pocket sized to accommodate a map or field guide. Unlike the Left and Right Side Pockets, the Lead's Pocket zips all the way around so you can open it like a clamshell, making it perhaps the ultimate "Admin Pocket".
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?
Intrigued? You can find out more about the unusual way we do business on our Company Philosophy page.
THE BIHN Guarantee
Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business since 1972 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.
