I have seen these on a few of my kids bags and they are utter crap and keep falling off. Just a heads up

i mean this one. i used them a lot in some mountain and bike backpacks and i rezlly like them because it is really easy to adjust it and also because you can put it on the sides of the shoulder straps without using to much space.

I've got a metric shit tonne in black if you are interested and don't want to go through WooJin directly.

Thanks Dave, i forgot to answer back. Actually i need only some pieces for prototypes, i'll contact you if i cannot find a source near me. Thanks a lot for the availability. I have a question for you, are there any motivations that you don't use this buckle in your backpacks? Second question, i can't find the 'tube' part on the Woojin site.

Thanks

Contact PKSupply for the hardware (they will sell individually) as for the piping, search " awning material suppliers " as its a standard item for clean, screw-less awnings and skirts.

From a user point of view, I hate that type of sternum strap. They never seem to stay where I position them. They'll always ride up to the closest point between the two shoulder straps. Then, one side or the other eventually pulls off the piping and can't be field repaired easily.

agreed.

On a side note, I can remember having many packs with that system but I honestly can not remember adjusting them. Go with vert pals and a buckle-T or similar if you really want/need the adjust ability.
