ITW Nexus came out with some new buckles a while ago and I finally got around to ordering some samples. My favorite of the bunch are the one-inch buckles in the Jet series. They're on the right. On the left are the buckles I currently use on all my bags...a member of the Trovato family, also from ITW.

The Jet buckles are a little easier to release than the others and they feed a little better, too, due to their curved mouths. I still think the Trovatos look better, though. The Jets are a little too fancy for me. Ha. But we'll see, I might order 'em anyway...they feel so nice.

To get your mitts on some, vist ITW's website at

Happy trails.
