The snaps are not functional on one side. This is a reason that I needed a replacement on a newly purchased pack.

    The products are top quality and come to your exactly the way you would expect! Timely, properly packaged(not overly packaged), perfect condition!

    Thank you guys, although the bag I carry daily on my 220 mile commute will never go bad, I will be purchasing products from you in the near future!

          Comments about Sternum Straps for Backpacks:

          My backpack did not come with a chest strap (ALL backpacks should!!!) and I carry a LOT of weight in it. Needless to say I needed additional support to keep my back from hurting and this strap does the trick. I really like that these particular straps have snap buttons that really keep the strap snug on the backpack and don't get loose.

          As a sidenote, I want to give kudos to the Timbuk2 customer service team. I ordered the strap in black but received it in grey. I emailed them about the mixup on a Saturday, got a response on Sunday (yes, SUNDAY!), and they shipped out the correct black the next day on Monday, no questions asked. Didn't even have to send the first strap back! Awesome!!!

            Comments about Sternum Straps for Backpacks:

            I own a number of Navigator duffels and by adding sternum straps, they are more comfortable and stable when I use the back pack feature. While there are no specific features on the back pack straps to keep them in a set place on the straps, the elastic in the sternum straps allows me to just move them up into place when needed. It works for me.

                Comments about Sternum Straps for Backpacks:

                We had to purchase a sternum strap for our four year old who refused to wear his backpack. Kids backpacks with a strap were very pricey and not great quality. This strap with shipping was around $10 and we were able to let him have his paw patrol themed bag that he picked out. Only con was the straps did slip down but a quick whip stitch fixed the problem quickly.

                  Comments about Sternum Straps for Backpacks:

                  I use the strap to reduce shoulder straining when I am commuting to school as I frequently carry at least 15lb worth of books/electronic devices. There are times when I have to stand in a train for up an hour and this strap reduces shoulder strain to almost negligible. Definitely required for daily commuting!
