    Can I use ID waist strap with Tri-Star?

    Like so many others, I love the indigo/solar Tri-Star, and was trying to decide what I would need to order with it. I have an ID with both a waist strap and the Absolute shoulder strap. I don't think the Absolute shoulder strap from the ID is removable to use on the Tri-Star, as the ID version doesn't have those D-clips. But the waist strap simply unbuckles; could I re-use that on the Tri-Star?

    Thanks!

    While I can't answer your question directly, are you aware for an extra $5, TB will put a waist strap on your Tri-Star. It's connected to the backpack straps and hides-away with them when not in use.

    hi ncb4,

    if i'm not mistaken, the id has a 1" waist strap attached via gatekeeper clips. you should be able to use this with the tri-star.

    you can use your absolute shoulder strap that you purchased with your id with the tri-star. in order to do so, you will need the slides and snaphooks that are required to attach the absolute strap to the d-rings on the tri-star.

    darcy,

    do we offer the slides and snaphooks separately?

    thanks!

    Thanks so much!

    Hi maverick,

    And thank you so much for the information. I hadn't realized it might be possible to use my Absolute strap with a D-ring attachment. I hope Darcy will be able to tell us whether I can purchase the connectors you mentioned separately.

    And I hope everyone has a wonderful, and safe, holiday weekend.
