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.

      The rubber bands are the ticket for keeping your cookset together.
      Great Product

    2. The solution !  star rating

      Posted by baby bear on 30th May 2020

      I was seeking to replace the stuff sack that my cook kit came in. Had tried my own conversions with rubber bands and shock cord. These are super. Silicone is the perfect material to hold everything together securely come on. It takes away the clanging sounds and it doubles as a pot grabber.

      Of all the items I purchased, given the current state of Corona virus restrictions, this is the only one I've actually used...and it works just like advertised. Quite handy and easier, much easier to keep my cook kit together vs the mesh bag it came with!!

      Posted by Unknown on 17th Nov 2019

      Just what I needed to keep my cook set together. I was concerned about the quality of the rubber band material but since receiving it, and using it, it’s really great and durable. Also, it fits well

    9. Keeps jetboil together perfectly  star rating

      Posted by Mediocre Mountaineer on 6th Sep 2019

      Ever since I got my Jetboil Micromo, my only real complaint has been that the lid sucks and always comes off in my pack, spilling the contents inside my pack. I was stoked to see the 9" version perfectly holds together the Micromo in my pack, so I ordered one while ordering a few other things. Tested it out for 3 days on the Pemi Loop and it worked wonders.

    10. better than a bag  star rating
