Yeah, when I tried the hip that I sold you I used my wb backpack straps and they did not match at all but they worked. All you need is a set of padded backpack straps and a the short set piece strap to feed thru the crumb drains at the bottom to hook the bottom of the backpack straps to. I have the midnight eclipse strap that I was using. It is not vety noticeable since it is fed through the crumb drain. I could mail that to you if you want it. :biggrin: LMK

I don't know, like 5$? It is the midnight eclipse pattern, but not alot of it hangs out and it is kinda hidden by your back I think. I never noticed that it was a different pattern really.

Oh yeah no problem at all. The short brown strap I sent with the hip, I used as a grab handle. I noticed that the shipping at ldd was cheaper than shop jjb by a couple bucks on the backpack straps, just a heads up :D

I'm liking this idea so much I'm having Anna put swivel clips on my Mini Hip so I can use it as a back pack PB-style. Seems like the perfect addition.

Hopefully it will work, I think it will with a longer grab handle through the crumb drains. I'll post pics in the mini-hip thread when its done.

Someone suggested the snaps may not be strong enough to stay closed if u make it a back pack

Interesting. My Mini Hip is now a backpack, PB-style. We'll have to post pics in the Mini Hip thread when it arrives. Apparently it is very light and wearable, but the Mini has less weight than a regular Hip, so that may help. I stuff my Hip pretty full and the magnet snap stays shut, so i'd be surprised if its not strong enough to stay closed as a backpack.
