i contacted PB and asked. They said the silver and the mossy oak 12 packs have the rings/buckles/whatever. i also sent pics of the BMW GS Adventure bags and explained there are a bunch of bikes and manufacturers of bags that have similar attachment points for strapping stuff to them and if a cooler with velcro attachment straps could be had they would be a hot item. Something like the RKA pannier top bags only a cooler. He responded positively to the suggestion, we'll see. Thanks for the response, i'll get a silver 12 and try it.
