Help a brother out?

The quick release on one of my ALICE pack straps is busted and I'm having a bitch of a time finding a replacement set. My local surplus store had them - until I needed them. Lane Luck, you know?
My Git Kit is in a civilian pack, but I use my ALICE for my coyote gear - calls, ghillie, ammo, small survival kit, etc.
If one of y'all run across a link that sells new or used straps, would you please forward it to me?
Thanks, I appreciate it.

Supply Captain.com has a bunch of stuff, but it appears to be plastic.

Here are some replacement quick-release buckles.

I'm not sure either of those links will help, though. Also, I can't vouch for these companies because I've never shopped with them.

Hope they have what you need.

P.S. I visit your site every day. Gotta love it..

Thanks, Sarah. I saved that link to favorites - I do a lot of online shopping.
By the way, I love your blog.

Al - that was what I needed. I'm ordering a couple sets in a minute. I don't know why I was having such a hard time finding complete sets.
Thanks much.

Good links; I've had stuff repaired at Narain's in Berkeley.
They do good work though they're getting a bit pricey.

I replaced my ALICE straps with MOLLE ones. Soooo much more comfortable. Tou can replace the waist belt with the MOLLE one also.
