Backpack Webbing Ends

Ride a motorbike or pushbike and sick of webbing slapping you in the face? Ever wondered why we put hook-and-loop tabs on the ends of our shoulder strap adjustment webbing? If you answered yes to either of the above then watch up and learn!

01:08 – Option 2: Wrapping it back on itself

All of our backpack main adjustable straps have a hook-and-loop strap on the end. This is “T” shaped and is to stop the straps being so long, dangling and flapping around, or getting in the way.

When the strap is open you can see that it is “T” shaped; with loop on one side and hook on the other. The way this is designed to work is you set the shoulder strap length to something you are comfortable with and then you roll the “T” up to shorten it to stop it flapping around. Once you get it to the right length you then do up the tab, wrapping the hook onto the loop, which creates a roll of webbing (and lump at the end) instead of having a long piece of webbing flapping around. This results in less to flap around and annoy you.

The other way you can use this Strap End is to undo the roll, and instead of rolling it up, you can do it back up on itself. Again, you set the shoulder strap length to something you are comfortable with, and then you do the tab back up onto the webbing. Wrap it around, and once closed up the ends of the webbing are not able to flap around. Using this method you can still adjust the strap length to get it to the right fit; so this system still has a little bit of adjustability but you know it is not going to flap around.

Our Anti-Flap Webbing Ends are standard on all our backpack shoulder straps in the entire range.
