    ALL TOM BIHN bags - with the exception of the Side Effect - that have waist straps have removable waist straps.

    Here's a link to the Waist Strap retrofit kit page.

    It's not quite done yet, but you are welcome to go ahead and order it!

    sorry i didn't respond to this earlier.

    i checked the waist strap on my medium cafe bag. i would estimate that it would fit a 40" or a 42" waist.

    Any ideas on when the retrofit waist straps will be shipping? I am leaving on a trip May 23 and would like to add them to my order, but I don't want to hold up everything else if it's going to be longer.

    You know, if you look at pictures z and z1 of the Tri-Star and k of the Western Flyer, it does appear that they are connected by gatekeeper clips. I wonder how they are designing the retrofit?

    yes! the waist strap can easily be removed and stored. for a demonstration, see this video on how the gatekeeper clips make it easy to remove and reattach the waist strap.

    Regarding the new waist straps...if we order a bag with one, but decide, on occasion, not to use them, can they be stored or removed, or is the only option to let them dangle down.

    Thanks.

    P.S...I'm a big guy....what's the max waist it will fit?

    Not sure on the new bags with the waist straps, but you could always order a bag without them, then add on the retrofit waist straps. They're guaranteed to come off!
