True that the buckles are mostly for looks and we generally use the hidden clips underneath to secure the bags shut. But... there were also a couple of times when I've needed to carry something that stuck up too much and it was nice to have the extra holes to loosen up the buckles a notch or two. I could still shut the bag tight when it didn't quite want to go down all the way.
