    Does anyone know if anyone still manufactures rollers for the waist portion of the harness on a BP/W set up? If so, who.

    thanks

    where the harness goes thru the bp and becomes the waist strap, rollers to make for easier cinching...

    I think this may work. I used a SS Rectangular ring and made my own, for the first BP/w that I owned before even using it one time. It is such an obvious modification, I was amazed that it was not common... then Halcyon started doing it too not too long ago.

    I used these D-Rings, doubled up and then used a piece of fuel line hose to resure the ends of the ring behind the back plated

    I would be curious to see a picture of this setup. Is this for tightening BOTH the shoulder and waist?

    Here's another option Backplate Acc.

    I'd like to be able to try these out myself.

    this looks to be a very logical way to go, who has them in the US or Canada?
