Velcro or Buckles (1 Viewer)

I'm trying to think of a way to attach my day pack (just a regular messenger bag) to my travel pack. My travel pack has a external frame with a bar that sticks out about half a foot up and I was thanking that would be the perfect spot. I originally thought the buckles from shopping carts to clip it there. Then my uncle told me he thought Velcro would work better. Opinions?

i don't know if velcro would be strong enough to hold your day pack in place. i guess if it was empty and attched to your travel pack then it might be alright. My only issue with velcro is that its easy to get pulled apart. i'd worry my bag might get caught on somthing and get ripped off, or maybe someone would pull it off. I dunno just my opinion.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
