Nope. A few SHORT lengths, each no more than 6" long, of shock-cord on cord-locks --because we're campers -- or heavy elastic strap, on adjusters, takes care of the adjustability. Or, cut button-holes in the straps or tie small loops in the cord ends.
Or loop tabs sewn or glued to the hmmk body, and removable hook tabs at the ends of those short pieces of shock cord or strap.
But, I'm retro and old-skool fond for buttons. Levi 501s and all.
