I consider myself half-way to being an expert on Dana Design packs, but I've never owned or used a Beavertail attachment accessory. I'm not ashamed to admit that this thing has me pretty well stumped. Luckily, I save a lot of photos of packs for a some-day blog I'll probably never start. I'm 95% sure I have the side straps connected correctly, but I'm a bit confused about how the bottom connects to the pack. I'm right around 75% sure I know how it works, and the other 25% might be from trying to connect a newer Beavertail to an older pack. It's unfortunate that Fastex changed part of its buckles several times, and then more confusion is added by all the propriety versions of the Fastex buckles. So, I either am not connecting this thing correctly at the bottom, or it is as simple as needing to finder an older version of a 1" Fastex buckle.
My request is: does anyone have the directions from the Beavertail scanned and available for sharing? It came clasped on a big wall card, and I've seen the directions on the back of it in a photo taken at a distance. Or, could someone take a picture or two of their Beavertail attached to their pack? And for the heck of it, how about a photo or two of it holding something, like a snowboard or a Monet?
Any help is much appreciated.
