Cross Bands

    • Keeps it all together
    • Long lasting, stretchy silicone
    • Four sizes for items 8 to 34 in. around
    • Bright colors, hard to lose


    Cross Bands are like having two bands in opposite directions to hold things together. Put it around the item(s) just like you would a rubber band, then separate the straps to form an X or plus. This spreads the holding power over a larger area. Super simple.

    They’re made of silicone, the same material used on the famous yellow wrist bands. While moderately stretchy, they don’t age and wear out like rubber bands or elastic. And silicone is heat resistant, offering insulation from a hot pot.


    Many trail uses:

    • Keeps the lid on a cooking pot for packing
    • Makes a bail for a small cooking pot/mug
    • Compresses clothes and gear

    Cross Bands are available in four different sizes – 4, 6, 9, 12 in. – to hold things from 8 to 34 in. circumference. They come in seven bright colors – yellow, orange, blue, red, green, purple, black – making them easy to find and hard to lose. You can choose a different color for each size if you wish.

    Which size should you use? Measure the circumference around the item(s) you want to hold together using a sewing tape measure, or use a string and measure the length of the string with a ruler. Refer to the chart below and select the size that best matches your measured circumference.

    1. Perfect for Snow Peak Trek 900  star rating

      Posted by Damien Hickey on 24th Apr 2019

      Anyone who owns a Trek 900 knows how useless the mesh carry bag is. The 6" cross band worked perfectly. I think I'm stretching it about an inch past its recommended usage but it still works. Now everything stays together just nicely. I even slap the windscreen on the bottom of everything.
