Product Review (submitted on January 14, 2012):
I was given this bag for the holidays. I got rid of it due to the plastic/nylon. Why can't you switch to leather and brass already? The plastic and nylon looks tacky and completely out of place. Otherwise, it was a fine looking pack I'd loved to have owned.
DULUTH PACK RESPONSE:
Thank you for your feedback! The reason we opted for nylon side cinch straps is because with the nylon, you can get a nice tight fit, significantly more so than using a leather strap with a roller buckle. If you'd like, we can custom make our Bushcrafter Pack with the leather cinch straps on the side. Please call our Customer Service Department if you are interested (1-800-777-4439).
