At some time in the past few months I somehow lost the right hip strap ("male" connection) for my Traverse 28 backpack. Is there a way that I can purchase a replacement strap?



@mwisley thanks so much for reaching out for help with your pack! A few questions to make sure we can get you the right answer - are you missing the entire strap or just the buckle? Would it be possible to upload a picture? Without being 100% sure, here are a few thoughts:

  • While we don't sell replacement straps, we do sell webbing and all sorts of buckles and can often use these parts to make what's needed.
  • If you live by a store, please come in with your pack and we'll see if we can help create a new strap for you.
  • If you don't live by a store, a picture would really help to see exactly what we're trying to fix!
