    Managing excess Absolute Shoulder Strap

    Any ideas on how to manage excess Absolute shoulder Strap after adjusting length? I’ve seen threads focused on managing the thinner backpack straps but can’t find anything on the wider shoulder straps (sorry if I missed it, as new to forum)

    Welcome to the Forums acousticbiker

    I don't use the AS enough to be bothered but hopefully folks will chime in.

    TB does have strap keepers but I haven't tried them on the AS
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

      Would this approach help? https://forums.tombihn.com/forum/tom...rap-loose-ends

        Thanks! Looks like the TB keepers are for 1” and the absolute Strap is 1.5”.

        I may try something like this

            Well, I tried these clips from Amazon and while they do a great job holding the excess strap in place in a minimalist way, their location along the strap is such that it digs into my chest when I wear cross-shoulder. May have to try these soft straps next.

              Tried the soft strap but it was too long (smallest size available) so I had to loop it around a couple of times which made it bulky. I also have too much excess for the rethreading idea. So I'm going to stay with the clips unless anyone has any other ideas.
