Trouble with Eberlestock pack

Getting ready for my trip to Wyoming. Tried my new J107 Eberlestock. Packed with only part of my gear on, including the super duffle, the tightening straps will not reach each other in order to attach and secure the load. I don't even have the duffle full or even close to full. It seems I need some extensions already and I'm not even carrying meat. Anyone have a quick solution to this problem? So far I'm not all that impressed with this pack. Why would you design an attachable duffle that can't be used to its fullest capacity.

    I have a similar one with the same problem. They are probably both made in China for a Chinaman to wear. I am going to cut one off a sleeping bag and have it sown on.

    You must have a big chest like me.

    I used my J107 just last weekend. Before the trip I wannted to see how the super spike duffle worked so I loaded er up and had enough room with the compression straps, but just barley. I would contact Eberlestock, I think that theye will set things right asap. Dont give up on the pack just yet, I really love mine, it just takes some figuring.

    Oh man, I got the J107M (wich is just the military version of that pack. it has a larger scabbard). I'd better to load it up and figure out if mine is the same before my hunting trip.

    I haven't had a chance to talk to Eberlestock yet but what I did was order some straps and buckles of the same size to make extension between the stock straps. This should work. I'm leaving in 2 days after work so I don't have much time to deal with this and I think my fix should work. I'll let you know when I get back from Wyoming.

    I didnt realize that the J107M had a larger scabbard. dang it. I was going to mention that I wish the scabard on mine was larger (barely fits a sporter rifle with a bipod and a Mark 4).

    gcamp54 - Let us know how your hunt turns out, and how the compression strap extensions work.
