OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2013

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2013

Buckles are a critical component for adjustability and performance of a variety of outdoor and travel gear. Many buckles are permanently sown or fixed into place and a broken or malfunctioning buckle can render an important equipment useless in the field. A broken buckle which is captive and fixed to the equipment cannot be replaced easily, quickly and cleanly without access to a sewing machine and tools. This can be a serious discomfort in many travel and outdoor situations.

Design Brief
To design a buckle which can easily replace captive damaged buckles simply, quickly and cleanly without complicated repair procedure.
