The pack fancier will note lots of little webbing “barbs” or “arrowheads” sticking through metal rings here and there on our packs.
These are our patented LA fasteners. They take the place of SR buckles as fasteners in many applications, saving much weight, bulk and wear and tear.
To open just crush the barb flat between finger and thumb and pull out of the ring. To fasten just stick the barb back through the ring.
Another small work of genius from Mr Maley.
