When building my Dacron Sailcloth Drop Liner Backpack, I consulted Luke for his ideas on buckles. He suggested that I swap the standard Duraflex Stealth Warrior buckle for a Fidlock. I took Luke's suggestion and I am so glad that I did. Granted that the Fidlock is a tiny bit heavier but it is so much easier to operate that it more than justifies both the additional weight and the nominal $14 Truce upgrade charge. If you have any doubt when ordering your own Truce bag, I recommend paying the modest upcharge and getting the Fidlock.
