    i was wondering if there is any way other than buying another bag to get a hold of a set of the backpack straps for a bag i have already called head (who makes the bag i have) and they looked around to see if they had any but did not have any that had been taken off a bag and i also called tennis warehouse as head said to try some retailers to see if they had any but i had no luck with them either if anyone has any ideas to help me out that would be great

    the reason i am looking for just straps is because my girlfriend bought me a head olympic bag as a gift which is awesome but it did not come with the straps and the seller does not have them either

    sorry ill try a bit harder to properly format my messages/make then easier to read

    to clear things up what i am looking for is a complete set of straps for a head bag (metal clips, strap, and shoulder pads) i figured it would be a hard thing to find but i didnt know if someone here would be able to help me out a bit so i just figured i would ask

    from what you are thinking the straps are sewn on the bag however that is not the case the straps i need have what looks like carabiners that clip onto the bag so it is possible to find a set of straps but i think it will be a tough order to do so

    Hit a marine supply store for 1" webbing with pads.

    Thanks for the suggestion i was thinking id either snag a pretty beat up bag off the b/s/t section with straps that are still in good condition or id make them

    the 1" webbing looks like a great cheap material to try and make some straps from if i do make them do you have any ideas as to what i could use to attach the webbing other than knotting the it around the metal ring on the bag

    ignore that last question i had in my last post after looking online at marine webbing and attachments i found that there are a couple of things i could use to make the attachment clips

    thanks again for the suggestion hopefully i can find somewhere local to get this stuff as i live in the ******* so marine supplies are not readily available

    Yeah, most outdoors stores will have either straps you can buy, or will have the webbing that you can buy per the foot, as well as all the pieces you'll need. Or just go on eb@y or @mazon and look up shoulder straps in the sporting goods section. There are definitely straps available that will work. But before you buy any straps, make sure the minimum and maximum lengths will work for your current bag.

    Cool, hope it works out.
    Just prior to reading this latest post, I was going to reply that REI has them in stock at the local store here in Berkeley.
