STERNUM BACKPACK STRAP
THIS ITEM WAS EXACTLY AS I HAD HOPED. MADE OF VERY STRONG MATERIAL AND PLENTY OF LENGTH. ONLY WISH IT CAME IN OTHER COLORS. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.

Keeps It Together
This strap was purchased for my old Moor & Mountain external frame pack (1972), which I still use. The pack straps were not built for a sternum strap, but the O.R. strap fit nicely with lots of length for adjustment. Fit and finish are typical Outdoor Research (excellent). Will work well as a new addition or as a replacement. If you need a sternum strap, this one is highly recommended.

Add it to your strapless UL backpack
I find that a sternum strap is far more important to the stability and carriabilty of a BP than a hip belt, yet many UL BP's do not include them. I was able to wrap the ends around the shoulder straps without sewing, making the strap adjustable on the fly. Good product, well constructed and thought out.

just what the doctor ordered
This strap is a perfect replacement to my broken one on an old pack. It is easy to attach and adjusts nicely.
