Thanks for sharing. I think i'll hold off on the quick releases for now. The point is that the adjustable loops i have right now don't allow for easy repositioning, so if i were to try to take my harness off it doesen't make it any easier - compared to if i didn't have the adjustable loops installed, because the harness just stays put. I'm hoping with these new plastic ones that's going to change. I will update on this thread once iv'e tested them out.Quick releases on backplate harnesses are certainly not the norm but conforming is not in my nature but they are certainly not for everyone. I just used the standard plastic quick releases availability most everywhere.
The T sliders I used are a bit different and completely change the routing of the harness significantly enlarging the shoulder area.
If you are using sliders that allow the webbing to reposition I wonder if that might be part of the problem and allowing your webbing to tighten when it’s not wanted.
Straight after i ordered them i saw i could have got a metal set of the design from a place called Kent Tooling in the UK, oh well.
They were twice the price anyway and probably heavier than the plastic ones, and i want to keep my rig as light as possible for travel, so i think i made the best choice.
