Getting new pack straps made.

I've got a much loved K2 Hunter pack, it carries(d) a load beautifully & although I Know there're lighter packs out there I still rate it, but, the straps have got a bit tired, especially the right hand one I've always picked it up by to swing it on, so, I'd like to replace the straps with something more like modern packs have, but I need to know they'll be the goods, a lash up job on something like this would be a disaster, so  I'm asking, does anyone have someone they could recommend to do this? I'm in Nelson.
Steve.

Twin Needle here in CHCH will be the place I'd be going.

Thanks for that feedback guys, I actually thought that K2 were defunct so I'll follow up on that, if that leads nowhere, then Twinneedle will get a call.

K2 is still operating out of Tapawera so you won't have any trouble getting them to sort you something (and for any other outdoor repairs or builds Twinneedle will definitely see you right.)
