    I have some cheap harbor freight ratchet straps. They work just fine. I also have various length bungee cords for stuff that doesn't need to be ratchet strapped down.

    I use the same NRS straps. I have not found anything worth a damn compared to those. Ratchet straps tighten up a lot more, but they are a pain in the ass to use. I probably carry 20 or so NRS straps in various sizes in the bed of my truck, along with a few bungees and various lengths of double braided rope.

    I like them but they are pretty expensive, thinking of buying the buckles and webbing separately and making some in various lengths.
