The Nite Ize 12in Clippable Twist Gear Tie, Black makes packing up and stowing away your gear and pretty much any item super easy. The strong wire inside means they hold their shape while the tough rubber outer provides inertia and grip. The ties have a strong plastic #2 S-Biner at one end to easily clip-tie your gear up and secure it, and/or to hang the entire bundle up by. No more fiddling with fussy ropes and trying to unpick that tight knot just after you cut your fingernails! These ties stay in place once twisted up, but bend loose again really easily. Re-use them over and over. They are ideal for camping, backpacking, traveling and sports adventures as well as for just about everything at home too.
