    Question Empire Builder and Q-AM SHOULDER STRAP ?

    Is it possible to use the Q-AM SHOULDER STRAP with the Empire Builder? and if not - could Tom Bihn please make one for the Empire Builder bags?

    It's possible to use a Q-AM Shoulder Strap *without* the Messenger Stabilizer part with the Empire Builder. The Messenger Stabilizer connects to the waist strap on a bag; the Empire Builder doesn't have a waist strap.

    The end of the Q-AM Shoulder Strap is webbing and is designed to attach to our messenger bags that have a toothed slide shoulder strap attachment point; the Empire Builder has d-ring shoulder strap attachment points to accept shoulder straps, such as the Absolute Shoulder Strap, that have snaphooks. So, in order to use the Q-AM with the EB, you'd need to add snaphooks to the strap.

    If you'd like to try that, place an order for Q-AM Strap and put this in the comments box during the checkout process:
    "Instead of including the Messenger Stabilizer, please include two Absolute Strap snaphooks and sliders for my Q-AM Strap."

    That said, the Q-AM wasn't exactly designed for use with the Empire Builder. If you decide to try it, let us know how it works.
