    Quick question: is it possible to make the Q-AM strap easy to take off so you can quickly attach an Absolute Strap too?

      Yes - the parts and solution are the same for the Q-AM strap and Absolute Strap (described earlier in this thread) - a pair of 1.5" Metal Snaphooks and a pair of 1.5" tri-glides. Remember to get the 1.5" Triangle Hooks to make the Ego compatible with the Shoulder Strap Snaphooks.

      It is slightly harder to thread the short end of the Q-AM strap as the webbing is limited but is doable. Here is a picture of the Q-AM strap done this way and used on my Pilot:

      Hope this helps

        Over the past week, while I was away on a trip, the parts arrived from Tom Bihn.

        Now, I just have to figure out how to remove the standard shoulder strap from my Super Ego and install the parts and the "absolute" shoulder strap.

          Standard strap removed from Super Ego; triangles installed, "absolute" shoulder strap snapped on.

          Standard strap already recycled for other uses.

          Many thanks.

            Thanks for to great idea! I successfully added the triangles to the Ego and easily attached the Absolute strap's snap hooks to the triangles! I also added snap hooks to the Q-AM strap with the tri-glide part so I can easily go between the two straps.

            I think I'll be using the Absolute strap more than the Q-AM for now. I also removed the Ego's waist strap so there's less stuff dangling from the bag. Thanks again
