GearTies: They come in a variety of lengths, thicknesses and colors
Occasionally, a product comes along that is so useful and so simple, you just gotta shake your head and wonder, “Why didn’t I think of that?” GearTies, which are nothing more than plastic-wrapped wires are a case in point.  They come in a variety of lengths, thicknesses and colors and are easily formed into hooks, coils and custom configurations.  They are most popular for bundling electrical wires, but their uses are limited only by your imagination:  Secure your GPS to a canoe thwart; bind a rolled tarp; hang a light inside your tent; secure paddles to canoe thwarts for portaging; hang a water bag or pack from a tree limb etc. 

Their uses are limited only by your imagination
Okay, GearTies are not a “must have” item.  But they are pretty cool. And they sure are useful. The more I use them the more uses I find for them.  Really, now; why didn’t I think of that?

You can get them Here if I've peaked your interest.

one great use of the gear ties is securing 6 mil liner inside Duluth pack. just like a twist tie on a bag of bread. much easier than using shock cord or para cord. can be done using one hand.
