Two of what are arguably the most useful lengths of rubber you will ever own.
Brooks-Range Backcountry Ski Straps are made of stretchable, durable, polyurethane with a hardened aluminum buckle. Need to tie something down, or hold two pieces together, or repair something? The only thing more useful than a pair of 12" Brooks-Range Backcountry Ski Straps would be a pair of 24" straps. That and a bit of Duct Tape should have you MacGyvering in style whenever you need it.
Perfect for tying skis to packs, replacing a broken tip-loop on climbing skins, strap a snow saw to a shovel shaft, and of course, assembling a Brooks-Range Rescue Sled.
True story: We know of a backcountry skier whose boot shattered a few miles from the trailhead. He used four long ski straps to band it together, and he was able to ski out, undeterred and unharmed. We recommend a spare or three in your pack 'cuz you just never know when you'll need another one.
