    Handle Loops and Key Straps

    I just want to confim that there is no metal in any of the handle loops or key straps. I want to wear one on my belt through airport security and if there is no metal I should be fine.

    None that I know of, I have both key straps and the handle loop. I'll post you some pics when I get home.

    I have them I just wasn't sure if some of the components--especially where the hood is connected to the strap--wasn't metal.

    I haven't seen any sign of metal with mine, feels like it's pretty much just plastic, and trying a magnet near it I didn't feel any kind of attraction.

    Though, if you're going through a metal detector that you're allowed to wear your belt through, I would think those would have the sensitivity lowered enough (for example the Pre-Check ones) that even if there was a tiny bit of metal inside the plastic, it shouldn't set if off.
