Zatchels - quick release clips

(6 Posts)

I have been looking at one of their larger satchels and am trying to decide if I should get the quick release clips or not. Has anyone tried them? I would like to know if they pop open if heavy folders and books are put into the bags. I've had his problem with another bag in the past and don't want to make an expensive mistake. If they work I think I'll order them as I'd like to avoid the buckles as they look as though they could be fiddly.

I've got the Executive - it's pretty massive - with the magnetic fastenings, if that's what you mean? They've never popped open. You can lengthen the little straps if you've got loads in there - I regularly have my laptop, a ringbinder and various notepads, wallet and food in there.

I got them on my zatchel and haven't had any trouble with them. Not the magnetic fastening.

Sorry. I should have said that I am interested in the magnetic fastenings. The buckles look nice but a bit fiddly.

The quick release aren't magnetic, I didn't know you could get magnetic. They're push through. I don't have the buckles.

The buckles are fiddly. Dd ends up not bothering to do hers up. Wish I had got the easy open ones.
