I used these on a 4000 mile trip from Texas to Jersey and these straps held all the gear securely, no flapping and No Scratches from hooks! Easy to get gear on and off without having to remove the straps making getting started the next morning so much easier. They make thinner Straps as well, good for bundling that jacket liner when not needed. (Posted on 10/25/12)
After messing with attaching and keeping track of bungee cords and nets the Adjustable ROK Straps makes life easy. On a Multiday Rally were I'm removing my bag every night to carry into a hotel I no longer have to worry about where my straps are and are they secure to the bike. I keep an extra set in the top case in case I need them for those trips to the store. (Posted on 10/1/12)
ROK adjustable straps are the best since mom stopped slicing bread in 1945 (Sliced bread might still be number one). I travel all over the USA; have several sets to use on my Ultra and also on my Bushtec trailer. No worry about being the correct lenght. No worry about one snapping back and hitting an eye (seen the results of this problem on several bikers); Compact and easy to always have ready for the haul... (Posted on 9/29/11)
Got the small adjustable ones at the bike show in Long Beach a few years ago. First few uses caused me to think, Dang! Why didn't anyone think of these before? Ordered a couple of the thicker ones.
Only thing, KEEP THE ENDS AWAY FROM A HOT PIPE, OR THE REAR WHEEL. Cause of this, I have shorter straps.
No problem, I'll use them for my bag, but on larger things that need to stay strapped, I have ordered the larger ones. As was stated before, pricey, but worth every penny. (Posted on 1/24/11)
I bought the 18" ones thinking they would stretch like a regular bungee. I was wrong, these are far from the old round guys. They don't stretch much so your stuff stays put. Love the 4 I have and going to buy more of the adjustable ones for more versatility. (Posted on 11/5/10)
I've used bungee cords for 32 years and thought they were fine until I finally got some of these. No more working to protect my bike's finishes from the bungee metal hooks, and no more cussing at the bungee hooks when they snag on things they shouldn't and miss hooking on things they should. Even my wife recognized how cool these flat adjustable straps work. Excellent design that just works better than a bungee in every way I can see. (Posted on 6/13/10)
I have used cargo bungees for years on my Vespas - the hooks scratch my luggage and often bounce off. These Rok straps have made packing faster, easier, and much more secure. When I need to unload a bag to fuel up (under the seat on Vespas), it is a simple snap, click, instead of struggling with 6 hooks of cargo bungee. LOVE these - no more expensive than a good cargo bungee, but much better. (Posted on 3/30/10)
I went with 2 of the adjustible straps and love them. Easy to sinch down and pop loose, makes for fast loading and unloading. This is one of those products that once you use it you will wish you had bought them sooner. (Posted on 12/9/09)
Someone on ADV raved about these, and I needed some tie-downs to keep in the top case, so I went for it, despite the breathtaking price. I was not disappointed. This is not just another cam-buckle strap. I used two of these to attach a pretty full dry back to my V-Strom and they worked perfectly. Never wiggled at all, no ling tails flapping around, and the best part was the two-second removal and replacement of the bag during the trip, Once these are positioned for your load, they stay there till you remove them. Easy to use, very secure and confidence inspiring. Fast. Totally worth the cash. (Posted on 10/9/09)
