    Rocket Pack Waist Strap Belt Buckle Discussion

    I know that most believe the belt used was the U.S. Divers KAM 'EZ' PAK Belt Buckle, but I've been looking at reference pictures, and I haven't really found any good shots of the belt buckle at all to make a comparison. Seems to be hidden. Does anyone have a good reference picture for the belt?

    I have a buckle and some belt material, but unsure on how to attach it. There is not enough material to just wrap it around my body. I was thinking of cutting it and attaching one side each to the rear edge of the pack and buckling it in front. Any suggestions?

    you got it brother!! i would attach it more towards the middle bottom of the pack, and then it comes around your waist and meets at the buckle..

    Can you not just get some more material that is long enough?

    Depending on your harness you can just wear the belt and buckle and not attach it to your pack at all.
