Holi Grail™ Bungee Straps

    • Hold things together, strap stuff to your pack
    • So simple, so useful
    • Seven sizes hold from 1 to 10 in. diameter
    • Bright colors, hard to lose
    • Reflective tracers help you find them in the dark


    After rolling up an inflatable sleeping pad, we used to rely on a rubber band to hold it together. But the rubber band deteriorated and broke in the middle of a trip. We knew there had to be a better way. Holi Grail™ Bungee Straps are simple, yet effective at holding things together. And they’re also great for strapping light stuff to your pack.

    To keep a rolled item together, wrap the Holi Grail Strap around the roll and push the cord lock through the loop. Grab the end of the strap, squeeze the cord lock, pull the strap to tighten, and release the cord lock. That’s it. To attach something to your pack, just loop a Holi Grail Strap behind the webbing or around the shoulder or sternum strap. Wrap the Holi Grail Strap around the item you want to hold and push the cord lock through the loop, then tighten using the cord lock. Simple. While the item is being used, the Holi Grail Strap can be cinched up to the pack to keep from losing it.

    Holi Grail Bungee Straps are available in seven different sizes – 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24, or 32 in. – to hold things from 1 to 10 in. in diameter. They are available in five colors – neon yellow, neon orange, blue, red, and black. You can choose a different color for each size if you wish. The bright colors make them hard to lose and reflective tracers will shine light back so you can find them in the dark.

    So many uses:

    • Holding rolled items together, like sleeping pads
    • Keeping the lids on cooking pots for packing
    • Strapping trekking poles to the back of your pack
    • Attaching a knife to your shoulder strap
    • Holding a Ridgerest on the top of your pack

    1. 5 Stars if They Hold Up  star rating

      Posted by MNron on 4th Aug 2019

      We've used a variety of sizes over the last year: 6" to secure the twisted ends of Nylofume bags inside Ursacks, 9" to secure the legs of a Chair Zero when packing it up and also to fasten the bottom corners of a pack cover to a hip belt, 12" (I think) to fasten a Chair Zero to a backpack's daisy chain, unknown sizes to connect a bear spray holster to a pack shoulder strap, and several taken along "just in case". So far these have all worked admirably, but their durability is unknown, hence only 4 stars. I expect to buy more of these. Give them a try.

    2. Secure cord lock  star rating

      Posted by Abraham Friedman on 17th Dec 2016

      I was intrigued by these so I bought a short set and long set so I would have a bunch of different sizes to try since I don't have a specific use for these yet.

      The smaller straps are less stretchy than the longer ones because the smaller ones are thinner. The 3" ones stretch about 1" while the 12" ones stretch about 3-4". The 18" stretch about 9" and the 32" stretch about 18".

      I only mention about the stretchyness of the bands because I first tried the 3" one first and was surprised that it didn't stretch a huge amount but after thinking about it it makes sense. In any case, the way you use these, it isn't the stretch that's important -- it's the cord lock. The cord locks are very tiny but seem to hold well. The ends are securely attached in a plastic tab so you won't pull the cord lock off when loosening them.

      Great little straps. Sturdy with enough elasticity to secure my cook kit and other gear with no problems. I'm probably gonna need more of these.

    4. Finally  star rating

      At last someone has started making these available...And now I can quit using store bought hair ties! Great Quality! Get Some!

    5. Super Duper!  star rating

      Posted by Don Amundson (Still Lookin') on 12th Mar 2016

      A great and innovative product. I've used shock cord ties for years and have managed to lose many of them too. I think these will be much harder to lose in the field. A well made product with attention to detail.

    6. Simple yet brilliant concept  star rating

      Posted by Eidson on 2nd Mar 2016

      Such a simple idea but ever so useful. The shockcord in these is very firm and durable, yet it has a great balance with the amount of elasticity.
      I didn't see an immediate use for these in my gear but now have incorporated a number of them into my pack. My tarp poles are now secured by these and water filter lines and accessories or nicely bundled. These will likely continue To take over my pack to help with organization.
