My xtrabags (from the 2006-2007 kit) have a strap that has fallen off (front left one). What is the best way to fix it so it doesn't fall off/tear again?

Yikes!

Sorry to hear this. We recommend bar tacking - a tight zig zag stitch that basically fuses the two materials.

Any insight into what caused the failure in the first place?

Bar tacking? ok. I will try that.

I am not sure what caused this. Overuse? On day, I went to load up and the strap torn off and dangling into the bag. I certainly need to do something as the bags are not fully functional without this strap working!
