Better Hip Belt Buckle System?

Postby Grzldvt » Wed Jun 03, 2009 7:57 pm

I have a Dana Terraplane pack and like everything about it except the hip belt buckle system. I get it cinched up, and it seems to slowly loosen up. In some cases within ten minutes the belt has loosened and the pack has slipped down.
It is a simple click-in and tighten. Is anyone aware of any replacement belt buckle system that might work?

I had this problem on my Bora after several years of use. I found that scrubbing all the dirt out of the webbing helped some, but eventually I replaced the buckle, the old one was just worn down and didn't bite as well. Does your pack have a hip belt under the bonnet? If so and it fits try swapping out that buckle for the one on your main pack. Once I did that I contacted Arc' teryx and they sent me a new buckle sans $$
