Description

Straps that’ll last.

NRS custom-manufactures its 1in Tie-Down Straps to a tensile strength of 1500lb, then dips these straps in UV-blocking solution so the Tie-Downs won’t wither away and flake-out after a season of use. Die-cast aluminum buckles cinch down and apply pressure across the entire width of the strap when you secure your craft to roof racks or trailers.

Never leave home without them!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Awesome Heavy-Duty cam strap! polypropylene webbing has held up great through the years. Easy to tighten and release buckles lightweight aluminum die cast makes it as tough as nails. Easy to locate your length of the strap with it woven in the webbing. Always keep them on deck in the vehicle have come in handy in many situations not just for securing the kayak down.

Never leave home without them!

Are the NRS straps the same strength as the Thule 521?

Responded on

Ryan,

Yup! Most 1 inch cam straps are going to be made from virtually the same polypropylene. The only difference between an NRS 9 footer and the Thule is that the Thule straps come with a little rubber bumper to put over the buckle. (I've been using cam straps on my vehicle for years without the bumpers to no ill effect.)

Feel free to give me a shout if you have any other questions! 800.409.4502, ext 4456.

Tie it Down!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The NRS straps have been a mainstay for years for me personally. I love having different sizes. Super versatile. Any boaters out there, you all know these things are the bomb! :) Lots of gear, wood, etc, you need it tied down, look no further.

Great customer service

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

These are nice tie down straps but don't get excited by the stainless steel buckle claim. The buckles have a stainless steel spring, but the rest of the buckle is plated die cast metal that won't survive in saltwater any longer than your local big box store tie-downs. I know because I bought them and checked them out when they arrived. I checked with the live chat dude (favorite word - "awesome")and referred him to the webpage claim "100% stainless steel buckle". He had someone go look and confirmed my claim. The spring's the only stainless steel part on the buckle. That is probably a great idea for freshwater use, but for saltwater use you'll have to keep looking.

Fantastic

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I picked up a 4 ft strap and used it to strap down a pair of snowshoes to my hiking pack during a long weekend in the Eastern Sierras. While the strap -- particularly the buckle -- weighs quite a bit more than ounce-counting backpackers may be willing to bear, it is incredibly sturdy. The buckle is all metal and features a high-tension spring to hold the toothy bit to the strap. Since the teeth are at an angle you can feed and cinch the strap tight very easily even if (as I experienced) you only have an inch or two of strap fed through. Attempting to force the strap apart (simulating stress), I was unable to budge it. I would have zero reservations strapping something to the roof of my car with this strap and will almost certainly pick up a couple longer ones so I can do that. Although I've only used this on one outing, I'm confident I'll find many uses for it and it'll last me a long time.

Multi-Function Magic

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these for everything. Great for strapping stuff to the top of my Pathfinder, superb for attaching to field specimens and hauling them out, wonderful for securing dry bags to rafts. These straps come everywhere with me and are indispensable to any trip.

Just picked up some 9s for my friend as a thank you gift, he's using them to strap his bouldering crash pads together. Multi-function!

Where are these straps made?

Where are these straps made?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Lenny P,

These are made of a material called polypropylene ((C3H6)n). It's a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of outdoor and indoor textiles.

Fun fact: polypropylene is recyclable!

NRS 1in Tie-Down Straps

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Really great straps. I do a lot of car-topping, hauling stuff in my trailer, etc. and these are ideal for keeping loads securely tied. I only ordered a couple so I could see them "up close and personal" but having now seen and used them, I'll be ordering more. You can never have too many straps! If anyone thinks these are expensive, just buy cheapie straps from your local "discount" auto store and when they fail you'll know the meaning of "when you buy quality, you only cry once".

Strap it down

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great for everything that needs a strap. It's always nessasary to keep some in your car for activities that involve straps.12 footers will happily go around two kayaks! The cam buckles are tip top solid goods :) just remember to put them through the safety loops on your boat just incase ;)

When you describe the loops straps as being 6' long, can I assume that is the total length of the two parts of the strap system together?

Best Answer Responded on

It's not a two part system, just a single strap and a cam buckle. In your case, 6' long. Strong and easy to use straps though.

Great for strapping stuff to cars

These straps are perfect for strapping a kayak, dog cage, paddles, pretty much whatever, to your roof rack.

Best straps out there

It's hard to add much to this review that hasn't been said before regarding quality of these straps. Just a few of observations: These non color-coded NRS straps are superior to the NRS color-coded straps. I've never had a problem with the straps fraying, but that has not been my experience with the color coded straps, which appear to be made of an inferior material - or maybe the color coded aren't UV blocked. I don't know. But I highly recommend you stick with the non color-coded. Also, pay attention to the way the straps are wound when you buy them (at least some of them come wound in a self-securing way - some don't). This is a great way to store straps without having a tangled mess in a bag. In case you whipped them out in total excitement upon delivery and didn't pay attention to how they were wound, or if they just came folded - here's the scoop in the video below. Lastly, make sure and mark them - with your name on the tag - or I use a permanent Sharpie on the buckle. That lasts forever. If you don't, they'll end up in your friends gear bag!

Lash It Down Right, The First Time.

These are great for all purposes. It's always nessasary to keep some in the back of your vehicle for unsuspecting emergencies! The 12 footers will work beautifully to go around a kayak or two! Happy Strapping. :)

Great strap for the price!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Not the least expensive strap on the market, but if you go with anything cheaper than this, you're going to be re-burning ends and breaking straps constantly. I use these straps for everything on the river. There are stronger, longer lasting straps, but NRS makes the most cracked-finger friendly buckles. They last a few seasons of commercial boating. You could use them longer, but they'll start breaking on you and the buckles loose their spring so they don't clamp down as hard.

Just as good as Thule and Yakima

Top notch. I actually use these more because I find the rubber covers on the Thule and Yakima straps annoying.

How wide are they? 1 inch, 1 1/4?

Gold Standard

These are the gold standard of cam straps. You'll be hard pressed to find better quality. Highly saught after. Certainly keep a sharp eye on your strap out ont he river. I've had to chop off the hand of more than one strap theif (well, I wanted to at least).

Cam Straps

These things come in handy in sooo many situations. Good for strapping stuff to your car, strapping down gear in your raft, hanging tarps or your food away from the animals of the woods. Well worth a few bucks. I also use them as my 'Oh S..t! Line' across my raft in high water to hold on to if I'm about to fly out, or for people climbing back in something to grab onto. Set them up right and they'll never fail you.

Your picture could indicate that there are nine different lengths available but the "select option" box
only shows the 3', 9', & 15'.

If you don't carry the other lengths and are simply using NRS's generic picture maybe you could
consider offering the others as I for one would be interested in some of them.
Thanks

Responded on

The "select option" box shows which option are in stock. At the time I am writing this they have all lengths in stock and therefore all are represented in the drop down. That changes from day to day. I believe this is true of all backcountry.com listing.

Hope that helps.
