As the owner of an “Air Rescue” bag for around 10 years I continue to be impressed by its design and durability. I recently replaced the original plastic buckle after it broke with the new magnetic buckle. If it’s possible, this is now an even better bag. The convenience and strength of this buckle convince me that I will be getting many more years of use from this bag. Bravo!
This buckle is of such a great value that you definitely get it in your next bag. You will enjoy it’s fabulous effectiveness and the solid feeling it provides. An absolute no brainer.
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.
