Easily the most valuable piece of gear you could pack for any type of trip, but excels particularly for bikepacking or touring activities. They are durable, versatile, light, and killer for the price. I pack these on every trip - even when not needed. Thank you S2S, it's often the little things that make the difference.
These are quite good. The hook buckle is easy to engage, and unlike plastic buckles, is unlikely to break. Adjusting the straps is equally simple, and it's possible to put a lot of force into them to really cinch them down. They release easily when you want them to, even when wet, but hold tight otherwise. I've started using them to replace strap systems on other things.
Don't let Mark's "weighty" opinion keep you from these straps. The guy hasn't even touched them! I agree that the weight should be provided by the manufacturer, so I'll give Mark's review two stars.
