    Nicely keeping the excess straps in control

    How do you wrap up the excess straps when not in use? I almost never use the waist strap on my SuperEgo (but don't want to remove it) so there is quite a bit of strap hanging down.

    Yes, you can use big paperclips, rubber bands and cable ties to manage the extra strap ends but that isn't very elegant.

    Has anyone used a Guardian light to keep the strap ends in check? A hydration clip?

    TB - please provide an elegant solution for those loose straps.
    When in trouble, obfuscate.

    I use Web Dominator Clips. They are available online from several suppliers.

    I don't recall who initially posted the link to this YouTube video, but this is the method I use:

    You're in luck - Strapeez - Unruly cables are no match for these handy straps - TOM BIHN

    There was also a recent thread about this where people shared some good ideas - I'll have a dig for it. Edit: Found it! Corralling (Sp?) Backpack Straps

    I use Web Dominators too. Got them from Supply Captain, they were least expensive I could find. Wonder about durability? I slammed one in the car door last week. Expected to find it in pieces. Not a mark on it.
