Särmä TST day/combat packs are designed to enable attachment onto the Särmä TST RP80 recon pack for use as daypack lids. In this tutorial we present two ways to manufacture the necessary adapter straps, using a Särmä TST DP10 Roll-Top daypack as example. The same basic idea and adapters will also function with numerous other daypacks and rucksacks, feel free to experiment!
*Attention! The SR male buckles must be "US military style" to properly function with the QASM female buckle. The Classic SR male buckles are not compatible with the QASM buckles.
Upper strap made without sewing, the bottom one made using a sewing machine.
The actual use of the adapter straps is very self explanatory: clip the buckles from the straps onto those on the daypack and adjust for a proper, tight fit and you´re done!
Optionally you can add two SR female buckles (one on each of either the front or back straps) which allow for the adapter straps to clip together. This will enable you to secure any gear carried under the daypack lid to the main rucksack even after the pack is removed.
How you attach the QASM buckles to the daypack is up to you. If you attach them on the the rear side of the daypack you will achieve a compression effect when the adapter straps are tightened.
