      This strap fit perfectly on a non timbuk2 backpack I had bought it for but in the middle of a 2 week trip, I went to clip it together and half of it was just gone! Not sure if it was the snap or what?

      Comments about Sternum Straps for Backpacks:

      I bought this for a Gregory 2000 cubic inch climbing pack. It didn't come with a sternum strap and when fully loaded for a long day it wasn't that comfortable. I felt like a sternum strap would help a lot with this. There aren't many straps currently available and this one looked reasonable; I was somewhat concerned about the actual fitment to the shoulder straps, even before purchasing. It arrived fairly quick and I thought the webbing and snaps were high-quality. The problem I had was that the loops to attach the sternum strip to the shoulder straps was too big. My pack didn't have any bar tacks or D-rings to attach the sternum strap to, so I asked my wife to sew 1/2" wide velcro strips of about 2" length to the inside front and back of the attachment loops, male on one side and female on the other. This helps a lot, though it's not a perfect fix. The sternum strap still slides down the shoulder straps, but generally stay in place well enough to continue using. It's possible to put bar tacks through the loops to make them smaller, though that wouldn't allow them to be used on other packs with different sized pack straps. Overall I'm satisfied with the modified strap.

        This is great and sturdy! I tried to buy an additional one as a hip strap but it wasn't meant for that.

        Timbuk2 took TWO MONTHS before telling me they don't ship to Malaysia then promptly changed their minds and shipped it to me.

        Don't intend to order from here again.

          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.

              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.
