View Full Version : Zephyr/EB for lefties?

10-10-2007, 06:07 PM
I searched through the forums but didn't see this directly addressed. Given the asymmetric positioning of the strap rings on the Zephyr and Empire Builder, have any left-handed owners had difficulty wearing/using them?

I ordinarily wear a bag with the shoulder strap over my right shoulder, across my chest and back, and the bag at my left side or on my back (with its front away from my body). Would this be difficult to manage with these Bihn bags and shoulder strap?

Thanks for any info!

I'm not a leftie but that is how I carry my EB. I'm not aware of any problem.

I'm a proud leftie owner of the Empire Builder. Use it daily for work, and wear the strap exactly as you typically do: over my right shoulder, slung to either my left side or my back. The asymmetrical strap hooks pose no problem for me. Highly recommended, especially with the Absolute shoulder strap.

Just to close the circle, I ended up purchasing a Zephyr, and left-handed operation poses no problems. Very well-constructed bag.
