Giant Loop Pronghorn Luggage Straps
Is it possible to have too many tie-down straps? Nahhhh. And perhaps one of the lesser-known options is Giant Loop’s line of Pronghorn Straps.
Like many riders, I don’t like or use bungee cords (for any reason) because they stretch while in use and wear out rather quickly over time. If you’ve ever lost or damaged your luggage due to those things coming loose, you’ll know what I mean. For larger cargo items, I use ROK Straps. But there are other needs where they don’t cut it: bed rolls, loose jackets, camera tripods, and other incidentals that either don’t fit in dry bags (or panniers) or which I prefer to keep accessible on top of the other luggage.
Giant Loop’s Pronghorn Straps offer an alternative solution: stretchy, water/ weatherproof, almost indestructible belts. They come in five sizes, and they’re handy for reliably lashing down all kinds of items. I like them because they also attach to dry bag loops or D-rings, extending their capacities. And I carry a few spare Pronghorn Straps in my tank bag for times when I need to carry firewood to the campsite, extra water, or a lighter jacket and/or rain suit for easy accessibility.
As the Pronghorns are belt-like, they’re one piece and suited to tie down objects where a complete loop around and through some kind of retainer is practical. Another one of those gadgets where the more you use them, the more uses you find.
