The GT-COBRA™ Sling strap uses THE world-renowned ITW / AustriAlpin GT-COBRA™ buckle that's non-metallic, crush-proof, and rated to hold 500-pounds of tension before failure.
The 2018 redesigned GT-COBRA™ Sling strap turns your Vanquest messenger/VPacker bags (ENVOY 3.0, SKITCH-12, SKITCH-15, MOBIUS 2.0, TOLCAT 2.0) into an ambidextrous bike-messenger-style bag that rides comfortably on your back.
Upgraded EVA foam provides exceptional shoulder comfort as your bag rides high on your back away from your waistline. The shoulder pad features a single row of vertical PALS which runs the length and dual horizontal Hypalon MOLLE webbing allows you to weave cords and wires and attach pouches to the strap.
Durable metal hardware anchors the strap onto your pack. The sling strap can be easily adjusted for length with an Acetal loop by Duraflex and an elastic band managing the slack. Now available in Black, Coyote Tan and Wolf Gray colors to match your bag.

I have had the Envoy 3 for acouple of years now and thought the stock strap was fine: durable and it worked. But it was never quite comfortable carrying the bag for very long and would never position the bag completely out of the way when walking. I finally bought this upgraded strap when I started riding my bike more and needed the bag positioned more securely on my back. Thays when i realized how much better this strap was even for normal everyday carry. I wish i hadnt waited so long to get this. It is a noticeable improvement in comfort and still tough as nails durable.
An excellent addition to my Skitch-12 (that I picked up from Vanquest's Fire Sale. I wish this strap came standard as combining it with the Skitch-12's load stabilizer makes it an excellent bike messenger. The additional MOLLE on the strap helps me secure my flashlight with shock cord when riding at night.
Even when carried on one shoulder the wide strap is quite comfortable (as long as the cobra buckle is not in contact with any bony part of my body).
