Limitless possibilities

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

There are so many possible uses for these that I don't even know where to start. Basically if you need to tie something together, try some of these instead. You will know when you need it so keep a couple around.

Awesome ties

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

Bought these to hod together some cords in my camping gear and they are awesome. I got a bright color so they are easy to spot and so far they have been perfect. They hold their shape very well.

Twist and Shout

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These twist ties are awesome. I have a few to keep some of my fly gear organized in my pack as well as some tools for when I am biking.

Great little invention

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used these for a few years now and love them. One of my favorites is for a phone backrest when I'm watching movies. It can hold it up on an uneven surface, airplane tray table, or even your leg, just adjust and bend accordingly. I also have a couple in my tent as I'm not a fan of gear lofts taking up headroom. I can hang my hat, headlamp and even clothes on them.

Twist Ties for gear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These things are genius! I don't know why no one thought of this before. Nite Ize really knocked it out of the park with these. The strength and versatility that the Gear Ties offer is incredible. The longer ones are definitely strong enough to hold a bicycle (I've done it). Smaller ones are great for organizing cords and whatnot. Latching things closed. Holding things together.

The rubber exterior ensures no damage to whatever your twisting as well as providing grip so that the tie doesn't slip off.

Once you twist them up once they will never be straight again so don't expect that. Not a big deal though, you're just going to twist them up again!

Worth every penny.

These are great!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

As everyone else has said these are very versatile and useful. They come in handy all the time. Keep a few in the camp box, car and garage. I like to have a variety of sizes around. You never know when you will need one.

Twist Tie for bigger things

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I keep a few of these in my truck to secure random items when needed. I haven't had to use them too often, but they are great when the occasion arises.

Big Ass Twist Tie

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It's wire covered in plastic. That's pretty much it.

You should buy some because they're freaking handy.

I can hear the ultralight crowd shrieking already that cordage will do the same jobs. That's true. You could replace all gear ties with a commensurate length of string but gear ties are one hell of a lot easier to use.

They come in many colors and lengths. I'd encourage you to buy longer than you think you need - the always seem shorter when you start using them.

Gear ties are a bit like duct tape, they solve a lot of backcountry problems.

Very useful!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These things come in serious handy for so many things! They are durable and sturdy. I use them for my bikes on my bike rack so that the bikes aren't banging around and it works great. They are quick and easy to get around most anything!

Pricey but oh so versatile

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So this does nothing that cordage and a well rounded knowledge of knots can't do, but it can do it quicker. Lashings are really its strong suit, don't want the tires spinning on your mountain bike while its strapped to the back of your jeep... gear tie. I use mine to attach any number of pieces of gear to the exterior of my pack. You can accomplish this in such a way that your equipment is immobile and in no way interferes with your stride. Anything from fishing equipment to an ice ax, even my summit flag is lashed to my pack with gear ties. I prefer orange as the high visibility color is hard to loose in camp. The external mantle of this tie will eventually break down and the internal wire will with time begin to kink, but it will save you the time and waste of cutting dozens of various lengths of cordage.

Versatile and Convenient!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What can't these bad Larry's do? I have them in multiple lengths. These are so great for anyone with an active lifestyle that needs to attach this to that or hold this here, etc. etc. The random places I have found use for these are (but not limited to:)
1. Use as a fly rod holder in your Subaru
2. Use as a chest strap when your packs stitching fails you
3. Connect your water bottle to your pack
4. Tie down a bike lock

These work great as an alternative to duct tape or straps. So strong for what they are. Highly recommended for...well, anyone

Gear Tie - thousands of uses!

Great for keeping gear together

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These things are perfect for keeping rope together or tying things to your pack or tent. They are very durable and will last for a long time

An Organizing Must-Have

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These ties work great for keeping ropes, cord, and other items neat and separated for organizational purposes. Pretty handy for camp/climbing gear storage and transport.
