View Full Version : question about the top lid strap attachment point

I love the new line mel, just had one question/concern. I notice the two buckles that attach the straps to the top lid mount on the tipi fabric and do not extend all the way to the cordura armored bottom.. is there a reason for this, I just know I really tend to stress those points and often throw jackets and other gear under them and would like to see some more reinforcement there. but I am sure you can rest my mind on this subject.. and yes I will buy one. (at least one)

Hey Anton, no worries there. If you'll notice in the pack photos, there is a horizontal webbing strip that the buckles for the top lid and common loops are sewn under for reinforcement. Hope this helps relieve your concern.
