    Reviving this thread with a question @tpnl about the cross-body attachment on the SK.

    Will the 1" single gatekeeper clips work for this cross-body attachment to the SK? I have an Op-tech USA mini SOS strap that is a 1" wide strap. Doesn't look like there are any 1.5" single gatekeeper clips (to try with my Absolute Strap) in the TB parts section.

    I had a SK in deep blue/dawn sitting in my closet (with tags still), but I never had the courage to wear it and pull it off (as a guy) - until NOW. This totally works with the cross-body, but IMO it looks better with the gatekeeper clip attachment that you showed rather than using the metal swivel clip hooks from a strap.

    Thanks so much!

    ETA: Or maybe the double gatekeeper clips would work better??

All straps were connected to the loops at the side of the SK using gatekeeper clips except for the last one (2" strap) - you could use either the loops or the standard clip shoulder strap. I just like using the gatekeeper clips:

    1" strap (Field Journal Shoulder Strap):
    Attachment 17013

    1.5" strap (TB Absolute Shoulder Strap):
    Attachment 17012

    2" strap (Mission Workshop Messenger Bag Strap)
    Attachment 17014

    Hope this helps
    Cheers!

    In case anyone else follows this thread for the future, I will add what I ended up doing with my SK (deep blue). I am comfortable pulling it off now as I really love this bag for its organizational greatness.

    I ordered both the 1" single gate keeper and 1" double gatekeeper pairs from the TB Parts section. I just experimented what might work, how to best position the straps on the bag. I chose the single gate keeper. I'm using a 1" strap I had gotten from another company - it works well. YMMV what strap works for you. I did try the Mini SOS Op-Tech strap (1") that is the Absolute Strap's little brother. But I didn't need the Op-tech's wider shoulder padding.

    I wanted to keep the swivels attachment as part of the strap attachment so things wouldn't get all twisty on me.

    Here are the pics:
