Take a zip tie and hold it like a pencil. Roll the strap around the zip tie like you would the end of a tube of toothpaste, then hook the zip tie to keep it from unwinding. That's the way we fasten driver harnesses in cars when they are too long.

I'll go with tankbag too. I've got a cortech that doubles as tank bag or backpack - when I get home it gets stuck to the side of the refrigerator.

There has been an alarming increase in the number of things I know nothing about!!!

Short commutes, I wear the backpack. Long rides, it bugs the outta me! I strap it down with the cargo net. My commute to work is relatively short, so I wear the pack. I have a tank bag also, but I have to carry my work clothes, lunch, drinks, and the "purse" stuff. I would need a monster tank bag

I spend a lot of time on my bike commuting back and forth to school. So my backpack is kind of a mainstay.

Have you ever had a thin piece of cloth snap you on the at 75 mph??? PAINFUL!

anyway, things I've already tried:
1. tying the straps up on themselves to make them shorter - always come undone and wind up doing it again
2. tucking them into the backpack itself and zipping down on the straps - always work themselves out.

ANY help? stupid question I know but there has to be a way to knock this off!@!

Here you go:

I've got them on mine, good stuff!
