    You can get the buckle from a fabric store -- the ones people go to buy cloth and other sewing and quilting supplies. That buckle is not hard to fund.

    Try this link and scroll down

    You may need to cut the fabric that holds the buckle and then re-stich it after you put in the new buckle.

    Or you can get a new bad gor around $25-42 US.

    Or get rid of the broken plastic buckle entirely (both "male" and "female" parts" and replace them with a carabiner (the hook like thingy used for mountain climbing).

    The quality of plastic buckles are usually very poor. I'm trying to find some powder-spray coated (always go for stainless steel, in case powder-coating wears of) metal buckles or carabiners to replace my plastics. I've got the same bag, 9624-6. However they aren't broken yet, I'm thinking of replacing them in advance. That way you won't have to face reality when they actually break during a tournament.

    Also, rei.com should sell the buckles.
    If you are in US, you can visit a REI store.
