Q: If I purchase the ProtectR, do I also need to get the Buck cover?
A: No. The ProtectR is designed to also cover the buckle on the straps that have one, like the Curve, Metro, Kick, DR1, and DR2. The ProtectR is a great way to add peace of mind while traveling in areas where theft is a potential problem. It comes in regular length and also a long version for our taller customers. It covers the length of the webbing that lays against the back with 1.5 cm steel cable and guards against someone trying to cut the webbing from behind and run off with your gear. It also covers the buckle on the back so that it cannot be opened unexpectedly.
