    Yes! When researching some of the other ideas shared here, I ran across the velcro solution and decided that this is the way to go. Next trip to town, I'll purchase double sided velcro and take care of this asap. Thanks for your input!

    The below link is a thread specifically about ideas people had to answer your question - so lots of great ideas there.

    Corralling (Sp?) Backpack Straps


    Though more complicated, I did this solution (post #12 in the above thread) as I wanted to be able to easily adjust the straps on the fly:



    Here is how to do this (need a triglide and D-Ring for each side):



    @terryon had a good solution too that was put in a TB bag hack video (see link below and go to 35 seconds in to see it - "No more dangles"). Note - I believe that this is the video @JohnDel wrote earlier about:

    Hope this helps

    Cheers!

    tpnl - So your solution looks great. i like the ease of the velcro idea, but I don't like the weird wad of strap that results from that technique. The video showing how the tri-glides work was extremely helpful as were the rest of the bag hacks that that video shared. I'll have to toss about these ideas and possibly try a few, so I appreciate your input!

    Or you can use Zeke's idea (30 days in Italy). Use a black hair band and wrap the excess strap around it and tie it off after. Cheap, reversible and elegant solution.
