Great Straps

If you're anything like me, this is what your backseat, floorboards or trunk look like during your paddling/fishing season. Every year I start off with the good intentions that I'm going to keep my tie downs neat and orderly - but a short while later the rubber bands have been broken or lost, and I'm back to tossing them in the back seat where my kids will whine about having no place to put their feet.

When I was contacted by Sea to Summit to test out some of their equipment, their “Bomber Tie Down” was one of the first things I asked for. It arrived just in time to make the 1200+ mile journey down and back to the to Virginia Beach Boondoggle. I never like trying out new equipment on big or long trips, especially critical equipment like tie downs, but I could tell by the by the feel they were well made and solid. After the initial snug-up fifteen minutes down the road (I do this on all trips), I never needed to tighten them again.

The well made zinc-plated alloy buckle is painted to help prevent corrosion, and it grabs securely onto the sturdy 1” wide strap. The webbing has a UV coating to help it last many seasons, and even when my knot came loose on the way back from the Boondoggle the strap end didn’t show any signs of fraying. In addition, the buckle has a rubber protector pad to help keep the buckle from rubbing on your kayak. Finally, the part of the Bomber Tie Down that sets it apart from other tie downs I have seen or used is the attached elasticized webbing retainer to keep your tie down neatly wrapped up wherever you choose to toss them in your car. They are available in 6.5’, 10’, and 13’ color coded lengths.
