Plastic Buckles and Hardware, Webbing, Binding Tape, Velcro


1/2" (10 mm) Side Release Buckles



These high quality buckles have a slim profile but are much stronger than the generic half inch buckles you may find elsewhere. They can handle being tensioned down tight whereas other small buckles will snap. We use them on our pack's top strap and sternum strap. The male side adjusts, and the female side does not.

These buckles have a wide mouth and narrow prongs so they are easier to snap together. That results in less fidgeting when clipping your sternum strap for example.

The webbing channel on these metric buckles is 10 mm wide, which is smaller than the normal 12.7 mm (1/2 inch) buckles more commonly found in the US. These work great with our 11 mm polyester webbing, but they are snug on true 12.7 mm (1/2 inch) webbing. If you would like to use these stronger buckles, pair them with our narrower polyester webbing.

1/2" binding tape works well for sewing these to your gear.

3/4" and 1" Dual Adjust Side Release Buckles



Our side release buckles are slimmer, lighter, and stronger than the competition. These are adjustable on both sides and are commonly used for backpack belt buckles.

They have a wide mouth and narrow prongs so they are easier to snap together without fidgeting.

They fit our 3/4" and 1" nylon webbing.

3/4" (20 mm) Center Release Flat Clip



This slim buckle works with 3/4" (20 mm) binding tape. They will break under high tension so they are best in applications where they aren't under a lot of stress. We use this to clip the neck of our sleeping bag, and on some clothing items where a protruding buckle would be in the way. The male side adjusts, and the female side does not.

1/2" and 3/4" Ladder Loc Buckles



These allow you to adjust webbing, such as for shoulder straps, top straps, load lifter straps, side straps etc. Our ladder locs have a low profile and are at least twice as strong as the run-of-the-mill variety. The 1/2" buckles can hold 60 lbs (27 kg) of weight without bending or snapping.

These can be used with binding tape for lighter duty applications, but it doesn't hold as secure as webbing.

This toggle is useful for closing tent doors or for any quick attachment points. We suggest using 3/16" nylon flat cord to sew this to your gear, and for making a loop to connect it to. The holes will fit our flat cord, or shock cord or other cord up to about 3 mm.

1/2" (11 mm) Polyester Webbing



Polyester stretches less than nylon, especially when it gets wet. This is useful for projects where your webbing will be under tension. Polyester has good abrasion and UV resistance. This webbing is good for backpack shoulder straps, top straps, side straps, sternum straps, load lifters and so on.

This particular webbing is a little narrower than usual at 11 mm wide, and it is the sweet spot to fit well with our 10 mm side release buckles and our 12 mm ladder loc buckles. It will hold well in any "1/2 inch" size buckles.

Width: 1/2" (11 mm)

Weight: .27 ounces per yard (8.4 grams per meter)

Price: $.95 per yard

1/2" One Wrap Velcro



This Velcro has "Hook" on one side and "Loop" on the other side, allowing it to stick to itself.  It is stiffer and has a much nicer feel than normal Velcro. The hook side does not catch on your clothing or collect lint as much.

If you want to seal 1 yard of length, you would need to order 2 yards of One Wrap.

Weight: .27 ounces per yard / 8.37 grams per meter

Price: $1.20 per yard
