The Nite Ize 12in Loopable Twist Gear Ties, Black (Pack of 2) make 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 loop at one end to either thread the long end through after wrapping it around your cables, tarps or any gear and secure it, 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. They are ideal for camping, backpacking, traveling and sports adventures as well as for just about everything at home too.
