Rok Straps flat luggage straps, £19.99 (twin pack)
Miles covered/time: 800 miles/one month
What’s good? It’s a great feeling when you arrive somewhere and that extra bag you had to carry because you brought extra civvies, is still attached to the back of your bike. Being flat, these luggage straps don’t cut into what they’re holding and with one end being bungee and the other a nylon strap, you don’t have to over tighten it to compensate for the stretch.
What’s not? They’re a little too wide to fit through my GS luggage rack holes. In fact they got stuck and I had to wreck one cutting it out.
