this is great stuff. I wish there was more metal but free is hard to argue with.
So i'm looking through and I will need buckles clearly, but how to make the shoulder strap adjustable?
I see the plastic cam buckles that look like was TimBuk2 uses but I have not been pleased with my experiences with that.

I think i have heard about a "D-ring" setup. How do those work? how many do you need? how big should they be?
