How many times have you been all packed up and ready to go when you remember that one last thing? You scramble, trying to find a spot in a bag or pocket, only to wind up cramming it somewhere it really didn't fit. Busted zippers, ripped pockets and worse—gear falling out when you least realize it—all of this happens when you're in a hurry and trying to grab that last thing.
TacShield's new TAC Straps can help with that. These waterproof and UV resistant bands stretch to twice their size, can hold up to 30 pounds and have a no-twist hook on a swivel so the bands always lay flat. The straps have integral holes that the hooks fit into, so they can loop onto themselves if you only have a single attachment point on your gear.
Even if the forgotten item is something as simple (and basic) as a water bottle, the TAC Strap will be able to keep your gear all in one spot with a minimum of fuss. For the price, too, they're quite handy to have around for last minute camping items, backpacking gear, motorcycling tours or simply any time you need to keep stuff together.
MSRP: $4.50 for either the 8-inch or 12-inch straps. Available in black, forest green and tan.
