Everybodys making those cheap-looking plastic ones these days. I couldn't find metal ones, but you could rig up some rectangle or d-rings to do the job, too http://www.allcraftsupplies.com/c-4745/buckles-rings.html

Figures there's a website called "strapworks" that didn't show up in my search for "bag strap hardware". Sheesh!
