Shopper  Does the Axis have an adjustable cumber bun or just the clip strap for waist?
WILLIAM M  All of the straps and clips on mine can be adjusted.there are two of them, one at the chest, on at the waist. I would not consider this a strap a cumber bun. But again, both can be adjusted for chest size and waist size. I have never had a problem with this BC, it is very comfortable. I have used it 2 dozen times since I bought it.
