Backpack hardware

patricia_mendenhall's picture

I'm looking for metal adjusting slides for the straps on a backpack and some end caps to finish the ends of the drawcord. I've only been able to find black plastic slides in my fabric stores. Does anyone have an idea where I could buy these?

There is a place called The Rainshed in Oregon(? maybe) with great people and they specialize in outdoor fabrics and hardware, including equestrian gear. I think they advertise in Threads, I don't know if they have a web site, but I do know that they are knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with.
