    So this is kind of weird, but I know some of you regs are pretty imaginative, which I sadly am not
    For my birthday, my sister got me this Portal sling bag:

    Which I love, it's pretty big and can fit a ton of stuff, but unfortunately I've used it less than a month and the straps that hold it closed have already fallen off.

    Does anyone know of a fix I could use to keep it closed? It has magnets, but they are not strong enough to keep it shut when I have a bunch of class stuff in there

    Here's another picture

    So the straps just plain came off? Are the strap clips intact? You still have them?

    I don't see why you can't try resewing it back on.

    I'd have to take it to a seamstress or someone with those skills, and there's no guarantee it wouldn't just break again
    They pretty much came off at the base, and the ends of the straps are pretty messed up

    I expected Zebra to rate this dumb, anything that doesn't have to do with TF2 or ly_dee he rates dumb

    Could you try replacing the magnets with stronger ones?

    Well, the strap seems fucked. Maddo might have the right idea with velcro, if you can stand the sound of it. You might have to stitch the velcro in, but it shouldn't take an expert.

    I always carry either my laptop or tablet, I think stronger magnets might fuck it up

    Velcro actually seems like the best idea, I'll for some online! Thanks :D
