  • 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?

Memory foam. Ballistic nylon. Soft sherpa fleece topper. It's the ultimate dog bed.

Designed to be the ultimate dog bed. U.S. 1050d HT Ballistic Nylon covers four interlocking bolsters, providing plenty of support for a tired dog's chin. In the middle of the ring of bolsters is a synthetic sheepskin / sherpa fleece, zip-in topper: easy to remove for washing or replacement. The fleece is warm and cozy — expect your dog to nest on in. Trail-weary bones will find comfort on a thick layer of 1-1/2" memory foam.

Fits dogs up to about 90 pounds.

Design Notes

— When we set off to make the Summit Bed, we decided early on that we wanted to build the no-holds-barred, realized ultimate reality dog bed: indeed, we went for the gold, and we gave it everything we had.

— Since all of us in the design team hang out with dogs, we all had some ideas about what our dogs really wanted in a dog bed. We realized that, especially in the winter, a dog wants a nest as much as they want a bed.

— After some sketches and the fabrication of some 2:10 scale models, we landed on a basic shape and aesthetic we liked: we realized that more than leashes or collars, a dog bed is a piece of furniture too and the thing had to look good on top of everything else.

— We brainstormed about features: we wanted a zip-out fleece top to make it easy to wash; we wanted memory foam to comfort and cushion trail-weary old dog bones; we wanted big cushy bolsters to create a warm and cozy space.

— We made a prototype and tested it: there was no question that all the dogs not only knew what the Summit Bed was for, but quickly were vying for a turn to snooze in the thing. In fact, the thing is so damn cozy, we all find ourselves drawn to it as well: Tom has been found napping in a Summit Bed on more than one occasion.
