Bungie Buddy's

Has any one mounted a set of Bungee Buddies on the GSW Vario bags yet?

It seems ther is no good place to mount them on the bags with the Expando feature.
There is more plastic on the inside of these bags than on my '05...

On my '05 they worked out well for me. I like them on the front and rear of the bag not the top.

RokStraps and Footman Loops

I've read several posts where inmates advise AGAINST using 'bungee' type lashing materials as they tend to STRETCH over time and whatever they WERE HOLDING...end up taking an 'unauthorized walkabout' never to be seen again.

I've used RokStraps. HOLD great.
In case you're unfamiliar with them...

BTW...you can find really nice stainless and other FOOTMAN LOOPS here:

You apparently don't know what Bungie Buddies are.

This is what I originally found BEFORE making my post:

Suppose you're referring to THESE, instead?

BTW...Like others, I still wouldn't recommend the use of "bungee" cords
