      Comments about Sternum Straps for Backpacks:

      These Sternum Straps are a good value. I had looked into making my own, but found that the materials alone would cost about the same or more than buying the Timbuk2 pair. And even then, I couldn't make them to the quality the Timbuk2 folks do.

      They don't mention it in the description, but if you look closely at the images, you can see that one of the straps has an elastic piece that provides a little 'give' to the straps which helps make them more comfortable. Just another detail that shows the care they put into the product.

          Comments about Sternum Straps for Backpacks:

          My Osprey day pack, which I use for carrying laptops, didn't come with a sternum- or chest-strap. Which meant it often slid off one shoulder. The timbuk2 strap is perfect -- fits just right, easy to adjust, does the job.

                    Comments about Sternum Straps for Backpacks:

                    I liked this simple design so I bought two. One for my son and one for myself. The strap is still going strong on my sons bag but for me, it's another story.

                    The first time I used it, I took my bag on a business trip and one of them kept coming off. I should have recognized this red flag but I kept using it. On my return flight, I noticed that my bag only had one of the straps after the x-Ray machine and recounting my trip, I don't believe I did anything out of the normal for the strap to come off.

                    Two stars because it's still on my sons bag but one came off the first time I used it. Still on the fence if I would recommend it to a friend.

                      I have a day pack that I love that did not have a sternum strap. Timbuk2's add on strap works perfectly and will make using this day pack more enjoyable.

                              The product is good for what you pay. I would pay more to have better/more secure/stronger snaps that fasten the sternum straps to the backpack straps. They come undone fairly easily.
