I'd stick with ROK Straps. Strong, and won't come loose on you.

I'll be sticking with them too. Particularly after the bungee cord attack a couple of years ago.

I use these. They're cheap, super strong and reliable.

NRS - been in play for me for over 25 years. Variety of colors and of course lengths.

Ask your local dealer about straps used when bikes are shipped in a crate. They are very nice and should be free.

Seen too many bungy type /Rok straps come loose and drop stuff on the road or move. Saw one where the guy was in a ditch and hurt becuase the straps had come loose and the stuff got into his rear wheel!

I only use straps with metal catches too (after several of the plastic clip types failed) similar to those shown by AteamNM!.

Do not confuse bungee straps with ROK straps. I have never seen, or heard of, ROK straps coming loose or failing if attached correctly. I have used them for years, as have most I know.

Straps with no stretch to them can easily come loose as the load shifts. ROK straps maintain the tension so they do not come loose. That is not to say other straps are bad, or will fail, but ROK straps and bungee straps are NOT at all alike.

No confusion! And yes, I have ridden with some who swear by the ROK straps and have had to stop them as their load was about to fall off - several times!

Having used my straps for 100K without incident - good enough for me.
