These straps do their job. They are easy to use and give no hassle.


  • Easy to use
  • Metal buckles
  • Durable


  • Long

These straps seem to be very durable and seem like they will last a very long time. I went back and forth whether to buy these for $10 or buy cheap ones at Walmart and I'm glad I went with these.

The metal buckle gives me peace of mind that they're not going to snap. The hook on the buckle is great because you don't have to thread the end through the buckles every time you want to unstrap something. You just loosen the strap a little and unhook it. Great design! 

The straps are kind of long for my liking, but I will probably get them trimmed down with a heat knife.

Version reviewed: 3/4"

Metal hook cannot withstand rated load.


  • Metal hook makes attachment easy.


  • Metal hook is too weak for load

I purchased a set of the 3/4" version of these straps to attach a bear canister to my external frame backpack. These straps are supposed to be rated in excess of 440 pounds according to the packaging. My bear canister with a week's supply of food weighed approximately 15 pounds. The metal hooks on the straps have slowly started to spread, so it is just a matter of time before failure occurs.
