    Attach extra o-rings

    I have some extra o-rings I'd like to attach, but I want to make sure I get the right loop material or as close of an approximation as the ones included on the Tom Bihn bags. Does anyone know the type of material used for the o-ring attachments?

    I used some webbing from an extra strap that came with a small camera case and it has held up perfectly. Unless you are going to hold barbells in a pouch attached to the O-ring, I think you are fine with any webbing you can find that is the right width The biggest problem I found was to find something that thin.

    Also, with webbing, make sure you melt the ends so they do not fray before sewing them onto your bag. I use a regular hot clothes iron to get a straight melt - just press the end of the webbing on the hot iron for a few seconds at a time until the nylon just melts - and watch your fingers - hold the webbing with a wrench or something if you are concerned!. I have a few pictures of how I attached extra O-Rings to my BB in this post:
