Product description: A strap or strap system used to secure and bundle items together.
Alternate product names: securing strap, bundling strap, accessory strap
Common materials: Heavyweight polypropylene is by far the most common webbing used with hiking straps. Polypro has excellent UV protection, and does not absorb water, giving it a high resistance to rot & mildew. With those two qualities alone, it's the perfect webbing to use outdoors. Polyester is another great choice for outdoor use. Its our strongest and most abrasion resistant webbing we carry, and can be imprinted with custom patterns, logos or solid colors. Flat nylon Has a smooth feel and slightly shiny appearance. Our flat nylon is what is commonly referred to as "pet quality".
Several types of hardware can be used with this webbing to make a great hiking strap, however, the most commonly used is the strap adjuster. They are available in both metal and plastic, but the plastic is popular because it does not corrode and rust.
Common uses: The strap adjuster strap is used to wrap around various items to keep them securely in place, such as; sleeping bags, tents, kindling, extra clothes, first aid kits on bags, etc. They can also be used around the house to hold up heavy plant stalks, strap together books, secure lightweight tools against the wall, and whatever else you can think of. If you would like more information on uses or recommendations on these, please send an e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to use: Take the strap and wrap it around the item or items you wish to secure or bundle together. Then feed the webbing through the strap adjuster, and pull to tighten. You can see the pictures below on how to feed, as well as the technical specs on the strap adjusters we carry at Strapworks.com.
Similar products: Other straps can be used for hiking as well. A unique one is the daisy chain strap, most commonly used and known in the rafting/kayaking world. The daisy chain has 1-6 "pockets" sewn onto it, and is sometimes used as a belt. As seen in the picture below you can add mini carabineers to clip on water bottles, towels, etc. Not necessarily a hiking strap, but an accessory strap that most take with them! It's a simple sling used to hang hammocks with ease (also pictured below).
